Professors Kate Bartlett, Nita Farahany, and Margaret Hu will give advice on starting a career in legal academia. Topics will include publishing, fellowships, and the teaching market. All students considering careers in teaching at law schools are strongly encouraged to attend. Please look at the resources at http://www.law.duke.edu/teaching/teachingmarket before the panel, as the discussion will build on those materials. The first link on that page, http://ww3.lawschool.cornell.edu/faculty-pages/wendel/teaching.htm, is written by Duke Law graduate Brad Wendel, now a professor at Cornell Law School. It may be a bit too daunting (it makes teaching jobs seem impossible to obtain), but it accurately reflects the kinds of things that faculties look for, and the centrality of scholarship. For more information, please contact Barak Richman at firstname.lastname@example.org.
