The University of Tulsa
College of Law
PROCEDURES FOR FACULTY APPOINTMENT,
PROMOTION, AND TENURE
The principal function of this College of Law is to preserve, to increase, and to transmit knowledge about law, about the administration of law, and about the ideal goal for all laws, the achievement of justice. The performance of this function depends largely on the quality of its faculty. The fundamental policy of this College of Law, insofar as appointments, promotions, and tenure are concerned, is to locate, recruit, hire, train, encourage and retain distinguished faculty members with outstanding qualifications. The procedures set forth in this document are established to further this fundamental policy. While recognizing the particular needs of this situation, these procedures are also intended both to implement and to compliment the regulations or guidelines for appointment, promotion, and tenure promulgated from time to time by the Association of American Law Schools, by the Section of Legal Education of the American Bar Association and by The University of Tulsa Board of Trustees.
A. Candidate: An applicant for appointment to the Resident Faculty or a member of the Resident Faculty being considered for a new term contract, promotion, or tenure.
B. Nonresident Faculty: Personnel engaged in teaching and research designated as Visiting or Adjunct faculty.1
C. Resident Faculty: Members of the teaching or research programs of the College of Law at ranks of Professor, Associate, and Assistant Professor, including both Tenure Track and Resident Contract Faculty, but not including Nonresident Faculty. The duties, privileges, responsibilities, and review procedures governing Resident Contract Faculty are set out herein and in the Guidelines Governing Resident Contract Faculty Appointments in the College of Law at The University of Tulsa.
D. Tenure: Contractual employment until retirement.
Formerly designated "Auxiliary Faculty."
Comment: Tenure includes "continuing appointment," a term used in a prior document.
E. Term Appointment: Contractual employment for a period of one, two, three or five years.
III. Initial Appointments
Each member of the Resident Faculty is encouraged to submit to the Appointments Committee the names of prospective candidates he or she believes deserve serious consideration.
The Appointments Committee, working in conjunction with the Dean, is charged generally with the following duties:
In recommending initial appointments, the following practices ordinarily will be followed, but may be departed from for compelling reasons:
All members of the Resident Faculty shall be eligible to vote on the question of whether an offer of an initial appointment will be extended.
A recommendation by the Resident Faculty to extend an offer of an appointment shall be made on an affirmative vote of two-thirds of the members of the Resident Faculty present and voting.
If a Nonresident Faculty member is to be considered for a Resident Faculty appointment, the foregoing procedures shall be followed.
As a general practice, a person will not be recommended to the Resident Faculty for a Resident Faculty appointment unless he or she has visited the College of Law or most of the members of the Resident Faculty have otherwise been given an opportunity to see the candidate in person.
Nonresident Faculty appointments shall be made on an affirmative vote of a majority of the members of the Resident Faculty present and voting. Unless otherwise approved in the vote of the initial appointment, a Nonresident Faculty appointment shall be for one year or less. Reappointment of Nonresident Faculty shall be approved in the same manner as initial appointments.
Resident Contract Faculty may be appointed for one, two, three, or five year terms at an initial academic rank specified by the Resident Faculty by an affirmative vote of a majority of the members of the Resident Faculty present and voting. Resident contract faculty will be eligible for five year contracts only after the sixth consecutive year of service. Although not eligible for tenure while under such a contract, resident contract faculty members may be appointed to an unlimited number of term contracts. Resident Contract Faculty shall be reviewed as provided in Section XIII.
IV. Renewal of Appointment, Promotion, and the Granting of Tenure
Resident faculty who are not tenured and are appointed to two or three year terms shall be reviewed during the fall semester of the second year of their contracts. Resident faculty who are not tenured and are appointed to one year terms shall be reviewed during the spring semester of their contracts. Resident faculty who are not tenured and are appointed to five year terms shall be reviewed during the fall semester of the fourth year of their contracts. Resident contract faculty first appointed in the spring semester are reviewed at the same time as those appointed the preceding fall, unless otherwise specified in the offer letter. In addition to the reviews provided in this section, reviews normally shall be made at the times indicated in Sections B, C, D and E of this Part IV.
An Assistant Professor normally will be reviewed during the fall semester of his or her third year after initial appointment and, at that time, normally either will be recommended for promotion to Associate Professor or will be notified that his or her existing term appointment shall not be renewed. [Section IV.B.3.¶2. of the University's "Statement on Academic Freedom, Responsibility, and Tenure" document states that "Normally the promotion and tenure decisions for assistant professors are rendered at the scheduled review during the professor's sixth year at The University of Tulsa."]
C. Review of Associate Professors without Tenure
1. Initial Appointment as an Associate Professor
A person, initially appointed as an Associate Professor, normally will be reviewed during the fall of the third year after initial appointment and, at that time, normally either will be recommended for tenure or will be notified that his or her existing appointment shall not be renewed. [Section IV.B.2.¶1. of the University's "Statement on Academic Freedom, Responsibility, and Tenure" document states "If the original appointment was at the rank of associate professor, a decision for or against tenure shall be rendered prior to the end of the associate professor's fourth year at The University of Tulsa."]
2. Initial Appointment as an Assistant Professor
A person, initially appointed as an Assistant Professor and then promoted to Associate Professor under the provisions of Section B above, normally will be reviewed during the second year of service as an Associate Professor and, at that time, normally either will be recommended for tenure or will be notified that his or her existing appointment shall not be renewed. In some cases, the recommendation may be that the existing term appointment be renewed for another three years. The decision for or against tenure, however, must be rendered prior to the end of the faculty member's sixth year at The University of Tulsa. [Section IV.B.2.¶1. of the University's "Statement on Academic Freedom, Responsibility, and Tenure" document states "If the original appointment was at the rank of assistant professor, the decision for or against tenure shall be rendered prior to the end of the faculty member's sixth year at The University of Tulsa."]
Any Associate Professor is eligible for consideration for promotion to Professor; provided however:
As a result of any review of a Resident Faculty member on a term appointment, one of the following decisions shall be made:
If, as a result of a review conducted during a year when a decision specified in paragraphs A, B, C or E normally would be made, the decision is other than one which normally would be made at that time under the terms of the applicable paragraph, the Resident Faculty member affected shall be informed in writing of the reasons why the decision is other than one which normally would have been made at that time.
V. Some Materials Relevant to the Evaluation Process Suggested for Inclusion in the Candidate's Dossier
With the exception of the requirements of Section V.A.1, this list is intended to be suggestive and neither mandatory nor exclusive on what may be submitted. The Review Committee may, after reviewing what the candidate has chosen to submit, request further documentation. The order in which the items are listed is not to be considered either a comment on the weight or importance of the respective items. This list is for purposes of illustration only.
A. Teaching Evaluation
1. The dossier must include standardized computer print-outs and all narrative student comments submitted under the official course evaluation conducted by the University. Candidates may ask the Dean or the Dean's designee to edit inappropriate comments and may also include letters submitted on their behalf by their former students.
All narrative student comments shall come to the Dean's office and the Dean's office shall maintain a book containing those comments for every Faculty Member that can then be reviewed by any member of the Faculty, and any Faculty Member can ask the Dean to edit any inappropriate remarks.
2. If the candidate has participated in any teaching clinic or in any other way has taken affirmative steps to improve or enhance his or her teaching ability, documentation of these efforts may also be considered.
B. Written Work
C. University and Community Service
A. Classroom observations will be implemented as follows:
B. Student evaluations will be considered as follows:
No attempt will be made in advance to state how much weight the Review Committee will accord student evaluations in the form of either standardized computer print-outs or narrative student comments.
VII. The Review Committee and the Review Process
Review shall function to assist faculty members to become cognizant of strengths and weaknesses in the performance of their responsibilities. Guidance and assistance shall be provided to help Resident Faculty members realize professional growth and development. Review shall provide to Resident Faculty members a realistic appraisal of their prospects at The University of Tulsa College of Law. Review shall provide also the basis for renewing or terminating term appointments, the basis for granting or denying promotion, the basis for granting or denying tenure.
Review shall be carried out by the Review Committee of The University of Tulsa College of Law. The Review Committee shall consist of five voting members and a first alternate and a second alternate to be elected by the Resident Faculty each year for a term of one academic year. Any Tenure Track Faculty member shall be eligible to serve on the Review Committee; except that no more than one untenured Resident Faculty member shall serve as a member of the Review Committee; and except that a Resident Faculty member shall be ineligible to participate as a member of the Committee in the review of his or her own status. The Chair of the Review Committee shall be elected by the Resident Faculty of the College of Law. The Review Committee for the next academic year shall be elected during the spring semester of the prior academic year.
This material shall be placed in a dossier available to all members of the Resident Faculty and shall be open to the candidate.
Committee will provide the candidate with a draft of its recommendation to review for factual inaccuracies.
of Law fails to recommend reappointment, the review shall end with the Dean notifying the candidate of the action of the Resident Faculty.
E. Notice of the terms and conditions of a renewal of appointment will in all cases be
given not later than April 1 .
At the completion of the review process, one complete copy of the Review Committee’s report will be retained by the Office of the Dean in a specific binder of Review Committee reports.
VIII. Standards Applicable in Renewal of Appointments, Promotions, and Tenure Decisions
A Resident Faculty Member will be recommended for renewal of appointment, promotion, or tenure only if he or she has demonstrated the qualities necessary for sustained excellence both as a teacher and as a creative and productive scholar. Other factors to weigh in making a decision are the extent, relevance, and significance of his or her contributions to legal education, law reform, public service, and the administration of justice.
IX. Outside Review of Resident Faculty Scholarship
A. Mandatory Outside Review
All candidates for promotion or tenure shall have their scholarly works evaluated by reviewers from other law schools.
Each reviewer shall be sent all of the candidate's scholarly work which the candidate intends to place in his or her file.
1. The Review Committee and the candidate shall have the opportunity to compile a list of prospective reviewers.
a. The Candidate's List
The candidate may choose not to exercise this option if she or he so desires. The candidate shall send his or her list of potential outside reviewers to the Chair of the Review Committee.
b. The Review Committee's List
The Review Committee shall request members of the Resident Faculty who are familiar with the candidate's field of scholarship to submit a list of at least ten potential outside reviewers. If no one on the Resident Faculty is familiar with the candidate's field, the Review Committee shall compile the list from the AALS register. In compiling the list, the Committee shall consider the length of time the potential reviewer has taught in the field, his or her publication list, and the quality of the potential reviewer's law school.
2. Challenges to the Review Committee's Lists
1) One "peremptory" challenge to any name on the Committee's list. This challenge shall be automatic and the candidate will not have to offer any reason for her or his challenge.
2) Each candidate may have unlimited "for cause" challenges. The candidate shall bear the burden of persuading the majority of the members of the Review Committee as to the merits of the challenge. Possible reasons "for cause" may include:
a) evidence of hostility by a potential reviewer to the genre of scholarship utilized by the candidate;
b) evidence of significant professional rivalry between the candidate and the potential reviewer;
c) evidence of personal animosity between the potential reviewer and the candidate;
d) evidence that the central theme of the candidate's work consists of a specific attack on the work of the potential reviewer; or
e) any other significant evidence which indicates that the reviewer will not be neutral towards the candidate.
Upon receipt of a completed review of a candidate's work, the Dean shall immediately forward a copy of the review to the Review Committee. The Review Committee Chair shall remove all identifying information from the outside review and place it in the candidate's file. The candidate shall also receive a copy of the review, with the reviewer's name and any other identifying information removed. The Review Committee shall not disclose the identity of the reviewer to the candidate or any other person who is not a member of the Review Committee. The Review Committee will have the option to disclose the identity of a reviewer to a member of the faculty who is an expert on the candidate's field of scholarship, if a majority of the Review Committee agrees there are unusual circumstances which warrant this departure from usual procedures. Although not obligated to do so, the candidate shall have the opportunity to respond to any specific criticism articulated in the outside reviews. This response should be made in writing and should be submitted to the candidate's file.
Pursuant to the University's Statement on Academic Freedom, Responsibility, and Tenure, the purpose of the review of a tenured faculty member is to provide each tenured faculty member with peer input as to his or her continued growth as a teacher, a scholar and a participant in law school, university and community services. The standard to be used for this review process shall be the continuation of excellence in the foregoing areas. The foregoing standard shall not, however, in any way be used to alter, diminish, or otherwise adversely affect the rights of tenure under the University's document, "Statement on Academic Freedom, Responsibility, and Tenure."
A. In reviewing a faculty member who is tenured the Review Committee should consider creativity, experimentation, risk-taking and diversity, bearing in mind that each faculty member has unique gifts to contribute.
B. In conducting any such review and preparing a report, the following shall be considered.
C. Peer evaluations shall not be conducted unless requested by the person under review or by majority vote of the Review Committee. If requested, peer evaluations of teaching shall be prepared by members of classroom observation panels consisting of two full professors with tenure and one associate or assistant professor, none of whom is a member of the Review Committee. Classroom observation procedures utilized by each observation panel shall conform to our procedures for faculty members other than professor with tenure, except that only one visit per panel member shall be required.
D. The student evaluations shall be the university evaluation summaries of the faculty member and all narrative student comments submitted under the official course evaluation conducted by the University covering courses taught during the appropriate time period.
E. Review Committee Findings
F. In all review processes, academic freedom and the meaning of tenure shall be preserved. The enumeration of specific freedoms and rights in this document or elsewhere shall not be deemed to be exhaustive, and shall not be construed in any other way, or to any extent, to exclude, disparage, diminish, or otherwise adversely affect other rights and freedoms protected by tenure, or by continuing appointment, or by academic freedom.
A. The Director of the MLIC should be initially appointed a member of the faculty at the same rank that would be appropriate for any other faculty appointment, subject to Section III.C.
B. The Director shall have the option of faculty status on either a tenure track or a non-tenure track. A Director appointed on a tenure track may not move to a non-tenure track, but a Director appointed on a non-tenure track may move to a tenure track in accordance with the provisions of Section XI.I of the University's "Statement on Academic Freedom, Responsibility, and Tenure."
C. Review of the Director shall be governed by the Procedures for Faculty Appointment, Promotion, and Tenure (Procedures). The standards contained in the Procedures shall be applied to the Director of the Law Library without modification. The following standards shall apply to the review of the Director for promotion, tenure and contract renewal:
D. The non-tenure track status shall be governed by the following provisions:
E. The tenure track status shall be governed by the following provisions:
A. A person selected for a full-time legal writing position shall be appointed a member of the Resident Faculty at the same rank that would be appropriate for any other Resident Faculty appointment, subject to Section III.C.

C. Full-time legal writing faculty have legal writing as their primary teaching responsibility. Full-time legal writing faculty are not entitled or automatically qualified to teach non-legal writing courses. Full-time legal writing faculty may, however, teach traditional classroom and seminar courses if, in the judgment of the Dean in consultation with the Director of the Legal Writing Program, there is a teaching need in the area, the faculty member has demonstrated substantive knowledge in the area and an ability to teach the course, and teaching the course will not have an adverse impact upon the overall legal writing program or require the use of an adjunct to teach his or her legal writing courses.
D. Full-time legal writing faculty are not entitled to transfer to a non-legal writing faculty line. Full-time legal writing faculty may apply for a non-legal writing faculty position and will be considered along with the general pool of applicants, but will receive no preference.
A person with non-tenure track status shall be reviewed and promoted as a faculty member under the same timetable and guidelines contained in the Procedures for Faculty Appointment, Promotion, and Tenure (Procedures), except that the person shall not be required to fulfill any scholarship requirement
A. A person selected for a clinical faculty position shall be appointed a member of the faculty at the same rank that would be appropriate for any other faculty appointment as provided in Section III. C.
B. A person appointed to a position as a clinical faculty member shall be employed either on a non-tenure track basis under renewable term contracts or on a tenure track basis.
C. Non-tenure track status shall be governed by the following provisions:
D. A Tenure Track clinical faculty member shall be reviewed under the procedures established for other tenure track faculty, subject to the provisions of this Section and Section E below.
E. Clinical teaching, for both tenure track and non-tenure track clinical faculty, consists of both a classroom component and a non-classroom component. Review of the classroom component of clinical teaching is governed by the procedures at Section
VI.A for evaluating the classroom component of other faculty. Review of the non-classroom component of clinical teaching, which constitutes the majority of teaching time for clinical faculty, shall be governed by the following:
F. Clinical faculty have clinical teaching as their primary teaching responsibility. Clinical faculty are not entitled or automatically qualified to teach non-clinical courses. Clinical faculty may, however, teach traditional classroom and seminar courses if, in the judgment of the Dean in consultation with the Director of the Legal Clinic, there is a teaching need in the area, the faculty member has demonstrated substantive knowledge in the area and an ability to teach the course, and teaching the course will not have an adverse impact upon the overall clinical program.
G. Clinical faculty are not entitled to transfer to a non-clinical faculty line. Clinical faculty may apply for a non-clinical faculty position and will be considered along with the general pool of applicants, but will receive no preference.
A. All issues involving charges of violation of academic freedom, charges of academic misconduct, termination for cause of a tenured faculty member, or an immediate termination, without offering a termination contract, of a non-tenured faculty member are governed by regulations established by the Board of Trustees of The University of Tulsa and are not affected by these procedures.
B. This document is subordinate to The University of Tulsa Statement on Academic Freedom, Responsibility, and Tenure, and while this document is intended to both compliment and implement, in the College of Law, the policies and procedures contained in The University of Tulsa Statement, should a conflict arise between any part of this document and a corresponding part of The University of Tulsa Statement, The University of Tulsa Statement shall govern.
