Post to Twitter Post to Facebook

Texas Tech University invites applications and nominations for the position of Dean of the School of Law. The preferred date for the individual to begin duties is on or about July 15, 2009.

Texas Tech University, with over 28,000 students, is located in the city of Lubbock, the high plains of West Texas. The metropolitan area serves as home to about 250,000 people. The law school has approximately 670 students and 35 full-time faculty members. It has recently opened a new 34,000 square foot Professional Development Center, which includes a state-of-the-art courtroom and auditorium. We take great pride in our student-centered approach to teaching and our faculty’s open door policy, which fosters intellectual curiosity and promotes mentorship. Texas Tech is the only university in the state that combines Law, Medical, and Graduate schools on the same campus, which allows us to offer unique joint degrees in the fields of business and life sciences. We enjoy support from a growing and increasingly successful group of alumni, including Justices on the Texas Supreme Court, CEO’s and government leaders, premier trial advocates, managing partners of major law firms, and champions of the public interest.

The Dean is the chief academic and administrative officer of the Law School and reports to the Provost of the University. The Dean is responsible for long-range planning, academic leadership, curricula, budgets, personnel matters, representation of the School both inside and outside the University, and the promotion of its national and international reputation.

The successful candidate should have a substantial commitment to legal education, scholarship, and public service, together with the vision and executive skills needed to lead an expanding, contemporary law school.

The Search Committee will review applications as received and will continue until the appointment is made. Applications must include: (1) a letter addressing how the candidate’s background matches the position requirements; (2) a complete curriculum vitae; and (3) the names, addresses, e-mail addresses and telephone numbers of at least four references.
