Adjunct Lecturer in Law - Legal Research

Gould School of Law Faculty Los Angeles, California

USC Gould School of Law is seeking a part-time lecturer to assist with teaching our on-campus Legal Research course during the Fall 2024 semester.

LAW-515 Legal Research (1 unit)
This 10-week course teaches 1L J.D. students a methodology for conducting legal research in the United States federal and California jurisdictions using Lexis, Westlaw and other databases to research primary law (cases, statutes, and regulations), secondary sources, and tools such as citators for updating the law. Part-time lecturers would be responsible for the teaching and grading of one or two small sections (15-17 students) using a pre-designed curriculum and course materials.

Candidates should have a J.D. degree from an ABA-accredited law school. A professional degree from a library or information sciences school or equivalent is preferred.

USC reserves the “Adjunct” appointment for faculty teaching less than full-time at USC, who are employed full-time in a primary profession or career elsewhere. Adjunct faculty typically teach only one course per year but, in exceptional cases, may teach one course per semester, if approved by the dean.

The base salary range for this position is $2,304 - $9,466 per semester. When extending an offer of employment, the University of Southern California considers factors such as (but not limited to) the scope and responsibilities of the position, the number of units per course, the candidate’s work experience, education/training, key skills, internal peer equity, federal, state and local laws, contractual stipulations, grant funding, as well as external market and organizational considerations.

Equity, diversity, inclusion, opportunity, and access are of central importance to the Gould School of Law. Gould holds a unique position in society, and within the university, as every aspect of these principles is influenced by and can be protected through legal rules and institutions. At Gould, we are proudly committed to maintaining a community in which each person respects the rights of others to live, work, and learn in peace and dignity, to be proud of who and what they are, and to have equal opportunity to realize their full potential as individuals and members of society.
