Book Description: The Law Professorâ€™s Handbook is designed as a guide for those who are transitioning to, engaged in, or contemplating a law school faculty position. Simply because an attorney mastered a substantive area of the law, refined his advocacy or negotiation skills, and has extensive experience in analytical thought, writing, and other scholarly pursuits, doesnâ€™t necessarily mean that heâ€™s prepared to educate others. Schachter offers information about the application process and factors to take into account in choosing amongst offers of faculty appointment. Thereâ€™s information about designing a course, crafting a syllabus, and choosing textual materials. In an effort to facilitate review of matters of particular interest, headings, a table of contents, and a detailed index have been included. Cross-references have also been incorporated to enable additional textual review.
