The Placement Bulletin is your way to advertise open positions to interested candidates. Schools may submit faculty and administrative positions, as well as positions related to legal education in other departments and at international law schools. It is issued to candidates in PDF format four times each academic year.

If you would like to post your school’s open positions in one or more issues of the Placement Bulletin, simply submit them via our online form using the guidelines below. Your submission of this ad indicates that your institution conforms to the AALS non-discrimination policies.
