The following is from my dear colleague, Michael Green:
As a member of the faculty appointments committee at Texas A&M School of Law identified to serve as a main point of contact in the particular area of dispute resolution, I am happy to report that we have a potential opening this year as part of a multi-year hiring strategy. We would value the opportunity to augment and build distinctive pillars of excellence in our nationally-ranked aggie dispute resolution program (https://law.tamu.edu/prospective/academics/centers-clinics-programs/aggie-dispute-resolution-program) with a particular focus on online dispute resolution. As colleagues in dispute resolution, we are asking for your help in identifying visionary leaders and outstanding scholars for our committee to consider as potential candidates. We are placing significant emphasis on lateral candidates, though we are open to considering entry-level candidates in the right situation, too.
As set out in our full advertisement (http://law.tamu.edu/faculty-staff/policies-hr/faculty-hiring-announcement), our online dispute resolution hire will have the opportunity to engage in interdisciplinary scholarship, teaching, and policy work at the highest level given Texas A&M University’s efforts to develop cutting-edge programs at the intersection of technology, business, and healthcare across the University’s 19 Colleges. The advertisement also explains the law school’s overall hiring strategy in more detail, in addition to outlining some of the components behind the law school’s remarkable upward trajectory over the past five years.
If you know of potential candidates, I kindly ask that you forward me their names and any information that you feel would be helpful to the hiring process. Thank you in advance for your assistance.
Michael Z. Green
