Position Profile
Hamline Law/Hamline University Profile
Hamline University School of Law 

Hamline University School of Law traditionally has focused on preparing students for the hands-on practice of law and for challenging careers in both traditional and nontraditional fields. As a result, Hamline is well positioned to adapt to ongoing change in the market for new J.D. graduates. The next Dean of the Hamline University School of Law will lead a process in which the many existing strengths of the School will be enhanced and new, exciting opportunities will be engaged.

The Hamline Law Dean search committee will begin to review candidate materials immediately and will continue to the time of selection. To ensure full consideration, all applications should be received by October 25; however, applications will continue to be received until the position is filled. The new Dean will assume office prior to the 2014 – 2015 academic year and as early as January 1, 2014.

Application materials should include a letter of candidacy responding to the agenda and desired attributes for Hamline’s next Dean, a curriculum vitae, and the names and contact information (including e-mail addresses and telephone numbers) of five references, none of whom will be contacted without the formal permission of the candidate.

All applications will be received and considered in full confidence, and should be submitted electronically to lawdeansearch@hamline.edu
