University of Western Ontario Faculty of Law
Academic Appointments

The Faculty of Law at The University of Western Ontario is continuing to recruit new members for its Faculty as has been the case in recent years. The Faculty expects to continue to make additional appointments in the years to come. The goal of Western Law in its appointment process is to demonstrate its commitment to excellence in teaching and research, and to promote a law program that is both rigorous and challenging.

JOB DESCRIPTION: The Faculty invites applications for tenure-track appointments, to commence on July 1, 2013. The Faculty will consider applications from top-quality candidates with interests in all areas of the law. However, the Faculty is looking in particular to fill positions in the areas of Criminal Law, Corporate Sustainability and Environmental Law, Health Law and Policy, and Tax Law. Appointments will ordinarily be made at the level of Assistant Professor, although if qualifications warrant, appointments may be made at the levels of Associate or full Professor. Western Law encourages applications from accomplished recognized scholars at the rank of full Professor.

JOB QUALIFICATIONS: To be eligible for appointment, candidates must have a superior academic record. This normally includes a relevant advanced graduate degree, or its equivalent. Candidates must demonstrate a record of, or a strong potential for, excellence in scholarly research and teaching. They should in addition have the ability and willingness to contribute to the intellectual and scholarly life of the Faculty community and to the University more generally.

APPLICATION PROCEDURE: Applicants should send a letter of application, curriculum vitae, and three letters of academic reference, to:

Dean W. Iain Scott
Faculty of Law
The University of Western Ontario
London, Ontario, N6A 3K7

The Appointments Committee proposes to review applications upon receipt, and will continue to do so until the appointments are filled.

Positions are subject to budget approval. Applicants should have fluent written and oral communication skills in English. All qualified candidates are encouraged to apply; however, Canadians and permanent residents will be given priority. The University of Western Ontario is committed to employment equity and welcomes applications from all qualified women and men, including visible minorities, aboriginal people and persons with disabilities.
