The global coronavirus pandemic has left no professional routine untouched. For those who are early-career faculty – tenure-track and non-tenure-track alike – this circumstance is particularly acute.

Launched in June 2020, Faculty Focus is a series of hour-long webinars featuring expert advice from law school leaders as well as shared experiences from early career law faculty themselves.

Webinars are structured to encourage conversation and connection and include opportunities for participants to engage with speakers and crowdsource ideas across a range of law schools.

We look forward to resuming the series in 2021. Until then, check out our past sessions.
