The teaching law jobs are typically for a law professor that wishes to teach law at a college or university and these can be highly competitive, which means you need to have all your credentials, such as a master's or doctorate degree in order to make the impression needed upon the various universities.

If you plan to teach law once, you complete law school rather than practice law at all; this is certainly an option you can decide to take. Many people do practice law for many years and then decide they want to teach and begin searching for teaching law jobs, but are overwhelmed by the requirements on experience. Most colleges and universities want their law professors to have considerable amount of teaching experience. One of the ways around this is to apply as an adjunct, that way you can teach at more than one college while you gain the needed experience.

Many people that are seeking teaching law employment only want to take on positions as adjuncts, because it affords them more flexibility, but they also miss the many benefits of a tenured professor. Still, others seek positions as online adjuncts and many only teach online, which offers more flexibility and additional options.

When seeking out teaching law jobs, you will want to first make sure your resume is up to par and that it is adequately showing your teaching experience. You should show even teaching experience that was not paid because this is still experience, can still help you gain the interviews, and hopefully positions. As you continue gaining experience, you may later wish to apply for tenured law professor, which of course is highly competitive, so make sure you have lots of teaching experience and a professional resume.

Speaking of resumes, you need to make sure you resume is professional written regardless of the type of job you are seeking. In other words, you must have the best resume you can because your resume is what is making the first impression of you. Go get your resume right now, look it over, if someone did not know you, would your resume be showing you in your best light? Many times people think because they have a lot of experience that they really do not need to have a polished resume, but nothing could be further from the truth.

As you know, the job market today is very competitive, what this means is that regardless of your past experience, if it is not displayed on your resume is an active voice that is powerfully written then you are short changing yourself out of possible opportunities. If a hiring manager or recruiter does not know you, all they have to go on is your resume and if it is not showing you in your best light, it is time to hire a professional that works with legal resume because they are written a bit differently than other resumes.

Your Interviewing Skills

If you have been an attorney for a number of years, you have probably had any tough interviews in some time, which means your interview skills are rusty. If you now wish to seek teaching law employment, you definitely need to brush up on your interviewing techniques, because for each opening, you could be one of many they are interviewing. The key is to make them remember you in a positive way and make sure you wear clothing that is business attire and that the colors are those that people tend to remember.

Gaining the Interviews

In order to gain the interviews for teaching law employment, you will need to use your professional resume and make certain you are working with online sites that are specifically for the legal profession. Since these will also include teaching positions.
