MOVING TO FRONT, ORIGINALLY POSTED AUGUST 12

This post is for schools who expect to be hiring this year.

In order to protect the privacy of our candidates, please e-mail me at bleiter@uchicago.edu to get a copy of the detailed profiles of our candidates, including hyperlinks to their homepages.  All these candidates (except for two) will be in the first FAR distribution.

We have a very strong group of candidates this year in a multitude of areas, including federal courts, civil procedure, administrative law, property, legislation, national security, corporate law, securities regulation, corporate finance, insurance law, criminal law & procedure, evidence, constitutional law, jurisprudence, law & race, contracts, commercial law, international business transaction, international trade, intellectual property, privacy, empirical legal studies, consumer law, torts, conflicts, environmental law, water law, natural resources, alternative dispute resolution, arbitration, land use, local government law, real estate, labor law, and employment discrimination. 

Our candidates include former Supreme Court clerks; numerous past editors of the Law Review; numerous former Circuit Court clerks; JD/PhDs in Philosophy, Psychology, and Linguistics; and many experienced practitioners (some with years of practice experience and publications).  Several will also help meet diversity objectives in hiring.  All have publications and writing samples.

If when you e-mail, you tell me a bit about your hiring needs, I can supply some more information about all these candidates, since we have vetted them all at some point in the recent past.
