Arizona State Hosts Annual Aspiring Law Professor Conference

For the third straight year, ASU Law is hosting a conference dedicated to preparing aspiring law faculty for the job market.  It's a good program - and I don't say that just because Brian and I gave the keynote in year one and two, respectively.  (They've nabbed Eugene Volokh for the talk this year.)  There will be plenty of good advice, I'm sure.  But far more importantly, the organizers have done a banner job assembling an engaged conference faculty which provides individualized help to candidates in the form of mock interviews and job talks.  More details on the conference, coming up on September 10 in Tempe, are here.

FAR Deadline for 1st Distribution is Tomorrow, Tuesday, August 2

Don't miss it!  But also don't file if you're not positioned to put your best foot forward.   Institutions do have short-term memories, and if you make a half-baked effort this year, schools that see you this year are unlikely to look again next year.
