Regular Full-Time


Quinnipiac University School of Law invites applications for two full-time tenure-track faculty positions for the fall of 2018. The principal curricular focus for one position will be tax law. Applicants for this position should expect to teach at least one section of Federal Income Taxation plus other courses in taxation and/or related fields of interest, including real estate, trusts & estates, business entities, and non-profit organizations. The principal curricular focus for the second position will be property law, broadly construed to include the traditional first-year Property course, plus real estate transactions and financing, land use, and planning and zoning. 


These curricular foci are offered as guidelines rather than rigid requirements, and we encourage applications from candidates whose interests combine the above fields with other areas of interest, as well as those interested in interdisciplinary work either within the School of Law or with faculty and students in the University's other academic programs.


Consideration of candidates will begin upon receipt of applications and will continue until the position is filled. We will be interviewing candidates at the AALS Faculty Recruitment Conference on November 2-4, 2017.


About the School of Law:


The School of Law, located on the University’s North Haven graduate campus, offers a full program of basic and elective courses to both full-time and part-time students. Students wishing to gain extensive exposure to a given practice area may customize their course of study to earn certificates in one or more of eight concentrations (including tax law and intellectual property).  Students gain practical exposure to the law through a variety of clinical and experiential opportunities (including the nation’s oldest continuing-operating tax clinic).  The school offers a wide array of extracurricular activities, including three student-edited law reviews (The Quinnipiac Law Review, the Probate Law Journal and the Health Law Journal). The School of Law is ABA accredited and a member of the AALS.
