Communication and Legal Reasoning (CLR) program
The Communication and Legal Reasoning program emphasizes teamwork and collaboration among students. Like most Legal Writing courses, CLR introduce students to case law and statutory analysis, legal research, and good writing principles through assignments involving the creation of traditional predictive and persuasive legal documents. In addition, the program is working on developing new and creative ideas about how to foster strong skills in both written and oral communication. Each member of the CLR faculty teaches one section of approximately 28 students. We are thus looking for people with innovative teaching ideas who have a vision of where the legal profession is headed in the twenty-first century and are interested in preparing students for this changing world.
Candidates should have a law degree, a strong academic record, interest in teaching and editing, and preferably some legal or other teaching experience.
To apply for a position in the CLR program, please send your resume, undergraduate and law school transcripts, one or more writing samples, and at least two references to Margaret Curtiss Hannon, Interim Director of Communication and Legal Reasoning and Clinical Assistant Professor of Law, Northwestern University School of Law, 375 East Chicago Avenue, Chicago, Illinois 60611.
The writing samples can be assignments you have developed or the type of documents we teach. Please do not send law review articles.
