ABA to Publish Book on How to Become a Law Professor

Via Larry Solumn I learn that,

Brannon P. Denning (Cumberland School of Law), Marcia L. McCormick (Saint Louis University – School of Law), & Jeffrey M. Lipshaw (Suffolk University Law School) have posted Becoming a Law Professor: A Candidate's Guide on SSRN. Here is the abstract:

This is the Table of Contents and the Introduction to a forthcoming book from the American Bar Association. The authors provide detailed advice and resources for aspiring law professors, including a description of the categories of law faculty (and what they do), possible paths to careers in the legal academy, and “how to” guides for filling out the AALS's Faculty Appointments Register, interviewing at the Faculty Recruitment Conference (the “meat market”), issues for non-traditional candidates, dealing with callbacks and job offers, and getting ready for the first semester on the job.

Larry himself has written the Foreword.

It sounds as if this book will be a must-read for law job candidates as soon as it comes out, although the bottom line for getting a job couldn't be clearer: Write. Lots. And well.
