Call for Jessup Moot Court Coach Applications

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.
