This panel will provide an overview of the process for entering legal teaching, including non-clinical and clinical academic posts, in administrative law and regulatory practice. The panelists will address preparation of materials for the job market, development of references, research agenda, conference interviews, callbacks, and the preparation of a job talk paper. The panel will also discuss the importance of diversity and practical experience in law teaching. In addition, the panel will highlight the new ABA Fellowship in Administrative Law, a fellowship program for full-time practitioners. The fellowship matches fellows with academics for mentoring in the year or two prior to the fellow going on the academic job market.
