A reader sent me an email about a job posting for a faculty position at Belmont Law. Apparently, attorneys with court-martial experience are encouraged to apply.

The posting is after the jump.

Belmont University College of Law, in Nashville, Tennessee, invites applications from entry level and experienced candidates to fill one tenure-track faculty position in the area of Trial Advocacy and Evidence for the 2020-2021 academic year, pending University approval. The successful candidate will teach classes including Evidence, Trial Advocacy, Advanced Trial Advocacy, and will supervise the student mock trial team.

A successful applicant must have a J.D., strong academic background, and record that indicates the promise of both teaching excellence and high scholarly achievement. Practice experience, particularly trial experience, is preferred. Belmont is an EOE/AA employer and welcomes applications from candidates who may add to the diversity at Belmont College of Law. Belmont College of Law reserves the right to exercise a preference for those candidates who support the goals and missions of the University.

    I’d apply, but unfortunately, I would base my syllabi on my past courts-martial cases and every five minutes I would have to shout out “Trigger Warning” like I have Tourette’s.

    Does anyone have any ISR as whether you absolutely must have been published to be considered seriously for this one? I assume so but  just wondering.
