Seton Hall Law is seeking applications for a Co-Coach of the Jessup International
Law Moot Court Team.
Applicants should have substantive knowledge of international law as well as experience
in persuasion and advocacy. Applicants should be able to work collaboratively in
a team environment. Experience with the Jessup competition, either as a former competitor,
coach or judge, is highly desirable.
Job responsibilities include teaching international law and advocacy skills geared
towards this moot court competition. Specifically, coaches will review and critique
students' oral advocacy skills, drafting abilities and substantive international law
arguments. Coaches will meet on a regular basis with students between August and
March, with December through March requiring frequent regular meetings. There are
very light duties sporadically between April and July. Classes take place during
evening hours at Seton Hall Law in Newark, NJ. Coaches will attend the Jessup competition
with students, which will occur in February and may be located anywhere in the US.
If successful in the February competition, coaches will then attend the advanced rounds
of the competition in March in Washington, D.C. The successful applicant will join
a current coach of the team. The two co-coaches will work collaboratively and establish
a division of labor appropriate for the team's needs and coaches' schedules.
Salary is commensurate with Adjunct Professor positions. To apply, please send a
CV and cover letter to Professor Kristen Boon at [email protected]. Applications will be accepted until May 25th.
