Position Highlights

The James E. Rogers College of Law at the University of Arizona (UA) seeks an individual to teach in our innovative dual degree undergraduate program at Hanoi Law University (HLU) to begin in Fall 2023. Launched in 2019, this UA-HLU cooperative program, which allows Vietnamese students to earn undergraduate law degrees from both universities in four years, entirely in residence in Hanoi. The degree program is the first U.S.-Vietnamese joint offering in law available fully in residence in Vietnam. Students in the program will earn an LLB (the law degree commonly offered outside the United States) from HLU and a Bachelor of Arts in law from UA—taking the same U.S. law courses and receiving the same legal training as UA bachelor’s in law students in Tucson. Law courses for the UA Bachelor of Arts will be taught in English in a flipped classroom setting during the third and fourth years of their undergraduate program.

Global faculty do not have scholarship responsibilities, but they are encouraged to participate in the scholarly life of the law school and may receive additional resources to support that work.

The final candidate will be asked to provide a copy of their diploma and/or transcript for the required credential verification.

  • Individual or family on-campus apartment housing provided by the partner university while teaching in the program
  • Health insurance
  • Annual roundtrip airfare to Vietnam
  • Moving allowance (up to $1000)

This position is contingent on obtaining and maintaining a valid Vietnamese work visa with the support of HLU.

Outstanding UA benefits include health, dental, and vision insurance plans; life insurance and disability programs; paid vacation, sick leave, and holidays; UA/ASU/NAU tuition reduction for the employee and qualified family members; state and optional retirement plans; access to UA recreation and cultural activities; and more!
