Adjunct Faculty

Adjunct professors are vital members of our teaching faculty. We look for significant experience in the designated area(s) of law and prior teaching experience in these courses, wherever possible.

Adjunct faculty spend, on average, 2-3 hours per week in the classroom. Additionally, adjuncts host office hours or “by appointment” meetings with students weekly and are generally available to students throughout the semester via email. Adjuncts need to be prepared for grading time commitments, which vary depending on the types of formative assessment required for the course and the complexity of the assignments.

If you are interested in becoming an adjunct at USF Law, please email with a cover letter and a current CV.

In the cover letter, please specify the following:

  • why are you interested in teaching here
  • area(s) of expertise
  • courses you would be willing to teach, noting preferences
    • please note if you are interested in designing a new course and specify what that topic would be
  • whether you have teaching experience, including:
    • in which courses
    • how much total teaching experience do you have
    • whether you have access to your teaching evaluations from previous positions
    • if you are currently teaching elsewhere
