Law school faculty members are expected to be legal scholars, effective teachers, and engaged institutional partners, but the information essential to develop these skills has not been published in one single source, until now.

LAW PROFESSOR’S DESK REFERENCE provides faculty members a foundation for student learning, effective teaching, and student engagement. It offers strategies for teaching face-to-face, online, and blended education. It provides a roadmap to help faculty develop meaningful scholarship, and it addresses law school administration, shared governance, academic freedom, hiring, tenure, and accreditation. More than a reflection on legal education, the book provides a “user’s manual” for the legal academy.

Keywords: Legal Education, Scholarship, Teaching, Service, Academic Freedom, Shared Governance, Formative Assessment, Online Education, Tenure
