Assistant/Associate/Full Professor of Law

University of New Brunswick

The Faculty of Law invites applications for up to three (3) tenure-track or tenured appointments, at the Assistant Professor, Associate Professor, or Professor level, with a start date of July 1, 2024 or such other date as may be negotiated with the successful candidate. These positions are subject to final budgetary approval.

These positions are part of the Faculty of Law's innovative Strategic Plan, which aims to enhance UNB Law's core curriculum, support a new graduate program, boost its research profile, and develop a range of experiential learning opportunities. To achieve this plan, the Faculty is hiring more professors, modernizing its facilities, and recommitting to its mission of preparing students for the legal profession. In pursuing these objectives, the Faculty will emphasize reconciliation, equity, diversity, and inclusion. Accordingly, the Faculty of Law values having professors from diverse backgrounds and perspectives.

The Faculty of Law welcomes applications from candidates with expertise in either private or public law. The successful candidates will be expected to teach one of the following required first year courses: Contract Law, Criminal Law, or Property Law. Each first-year course is 6 credits. In addition, the successful candidates will teach upper-year compulsory or elective courses in their field. A full course load in the Faculty of Law is 12 credits (typically, two three-credit courses per term).

Candidates must have earned a doctorate in law or a related discipline, or be a doctoral candidate nearing completion in their program of study. Consideration may be given to candidates who do not have a doctorate, but who show an equivalent level of qualification through a combination of significant professional experience and scholarly activity.

Founded in 1892, UNB Law is a collegial community with a deep commitment to its 270 students. Faculty members contribute to, and are committed to, sustaining our core curriculum, which includes compulsory courses in all three years. Our offices, teaching facilities, and the Gerard V. La Forest Law Library are located together in an attractive setting on UNB's Fredericton campus, above the Saint John/St. Jean (Wolastoq) River, in the capital city of New Brunswick. Faculty and students support a variety of causes and events that enhance the civic life of the school and community. We are home to the student-produced annual, UNB Law Journal/Revue de droit de l'UNB, and we offer many opportunities for collaboration both inside and outside the University.

Review of applications is expected to begin by March 1, 2024, and continue until the positions are filled. Please submit a curriculum vitae, transcripts of university study, brief statements of research and teaching interests, and the names, postal and email addresses, and telephone numbers of three referees to:
