We are committed to a policy of full citizenship for all law faculty. No justification exists for subordinating one group of law faculty to another based on the nature of the course, the subject matter, or the teaching method. All full-time law faculty should have the opportunity to achieve full citizenship at their institutions, including academic freedom, security of position, and governance rights. Those rights are necessary to ensure that law students and the legal profession benefit from the myriad perspectives and expertise that all faculty bring to the mission of legal education.
By adding your name and contact information to this document, you indicate your endorsement of this statement. We plan to report back and present the results of the project to interested organizations, including the American Association of Law Schools, the American Bar Association, and the American Law Deans’ Association. More information about the Citizenship Project is available on the Legal Writing Institute website. No individual names will be released without permission, nor will individual faculty or other signers be associated with specific institutions.
We will be collecting signatures until Equal Pay Day, Tuesday, April 4, 2017.
