Teaching appointment will be prorated according to teaching workload and based on the Lecturer salary scale. Starting annual full-time salary is currently $53,402. She/he will be expected to teach:

    Berkeley Law offers a robust program in Experiential Education, through which students engage in the development of their legal skills by working on “real world” cases under the close supervision of faculty, staff, and outside practitioners. Students gain hands on experience through participation in legal clinics, skills classes, field placements, Student-Initiated Legal Services Projects (SLPS), and advocacy competitions, among other programs.

    The Advocacy Competitions Program introduces students to litigation and transactional skills through simulated cases and problems across a wide range of subject matter areas. The Competitions Program has grown from a handful of student-supervised competitions to nearly 100 students participating in outside competitions each year, and even more participating in internal competitions. Berkeley Law teams routinely succeed in appellate, alternative dispute resolution, and international competitions in which they compete. Students who are selected for the external competition teams become members of the Board of Advocates (BOA), a student organization. The group is organized into four branches: the Appellate Team, the Alternative Dispute Resolution and Negotiations Team, the International Team, and the Trial Team.
