Changing Jobs -- A Handbook for Lawyers
by Heidi McNeil (Editor)
This book is your career guidance office reduced to a book. Whether that is good or bad, the section on teaching in a law school is excellent.   Order this book
In addition, there are important essays you should read:

  • Excerpts from The Great Essay, also known as "Information and Advice for Persons Interested in Teaching Law"   is extremely important.  You must read this essay if your goal is to teach law.  The excerpts page links to the full essay. Be aware that outside of law schools, law faculty are seen as a bit insular and limited, with quirkier than normal personalities and flaws.  They tend to be paid less than business school faculty at a graduate level.
  • My thoughts and reflections.  Not as important as the other sources.
