As the law school faculty hiring process evolves, there is growing interest from candidates and recruiters to streamline this experience and improve the hiring process.
Through a partnership with faculty recruitment platform Interfolio, AALS will provide candidates with an easy-to-use platform where they can upload their resumes and distribute them to law schools across the country. Schools can then use the same platform to review candidate resumes and qualifications and select who they would like to interview during the annual AALS conference. The platform will launch in spring 2020.
"In this changing law teaching landscape, it is critical for our member institutions to have access to a system that makes the application process easier for candidates and institutions alike," said Judy Areen, Executive Director of the Association of American Law Schools. "Through this partnership with Interfolio, law schools and prospective law faculty will have access to a platform that is specifically designed for academics and their needs."
The Interfolio platform allows candidates to display their teaching, research, and service accomplishments, such as published research. Through this new partnership, using the Interfolio platform, law school hiring committees will be able to seamlessly collaborate while reviewing candidates for open positions. Additionally, Interfolio's Faculty Search module can be customized by each institution to fit their unique workflows, ensuring that existing best practices remain in place.
"Representing the nation's top law schools, the Association of American Law Schools provides an important connection between law schools and scholars interested in their open academic positions," said Andrew Rosen, CEO of Interfolio. "With our platform, AALS can better support and streamline the application process for scholars while also helping its member institutions to review and recruit talent from across the world."
