I am coming to the end of a VAP position. At this historically inopportune moment, I did not secure a tenure-track position for next year... Circa March, I contacted a number of schools in the Northeast about the possibility of a visit, but was consistently told that they did not expect to have any budget for visitors for next year.
[A colleague] believes that there is a possibility of some "late hiring" of visitors as some schools come to realize that they have unexpected needs or more 1Ls than they feared (apparently there was a late surge in law school applicants nationally). The problem is the difficulty in obtaining information about which schools have late-arising positions. Might you have any insights in this regard?
I don't, but perhaps some readers do. Comments are open. Post only once, comments may take awhile to appear.
