Paths to Legal Academia
Have you ever thought about becoming a law professor? How do you know if you're well suited for it? What kinds of professorships are available and how does one become a candidate for them? As law schools become more diverse environments, the need for more inclusive law faculties increases as well. Don't count yourself out before you learn more about it.
