Dear Dispute Resolution Community and Friends,

Invitation to Apply: Director of Kukin Program for Conflict Resolution

The Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law at Yeshiva University invites applications for a faculty position as Director of Cardozo’s nationally renowned Kukin Program for Conflict Resolution. This pioneering program was started in 1990 to foster the idea that lawyers can fruitfully serve as problem solvers, counselors, and peacemakers.

To meet this goal, the program has multiple facets. The program is home to two Mediation clinics. It sponsors an unrivaled set of ADR course offerings, awards certificates in Dispute Resolution each year, and has an LL.M. Program in Dispute Resolution and Advocacy. The Cardozo Journal of Conflict Resolution, one of the leading student-edited law journals in the field, publishes academic articles on dispute resolution and hosts and publishes the annual Melnick Symposium, which brings together prominent authors and practitioners to examine cutting-edge issues in ADR. The Journal also awards the prestigious International Advocate for Peace Award annually. Cardozo’s ADR Competition Honor Society competes nationally and internationally. The Director will play a pivotal role in shaping the next generation of ADR practitioners.

We would consider senior or junior candidates whose primary interest is in podium teaching, clinical teaching, or a combination of the two. Applicants should have a demonstrated commitment to the study of mediation, negotiation, arbitration, and dispute system design. Rank is dependent on experience but tenure is an option for a candidate with the requisite scholarly record.

Cardozo Law values diversity and aims to build a team with a multiplicity of backgrounds, identities, and lived experiences that inform and strengthen our work. The Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law is an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action Employer. All qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, national origin, disability, age, or protected veteran status.

Applicants should send resumes to Professor Stewart Sterk, Chair, Faculty Appointment Committee, at sterk@yu.edu.
