Many students are interested in pursuing teaching careers. Traditionally, law schools have filled faculty positions with people who performed very well academically, with law review experience, a judicial clerkship, some practical experience, and a demonstrated commitment to legal scholarship. With greater emphasis on practical skills through class work or clinical programs, law schools sometimes hire lawyers with more years of practical experience, especially in adjunct roles.

Other academic areas are open to law graduates and practicing lawyers, although not always for tenure-track positions. Many undergraduate institutions hire lawyers to teach in interdisciplinary departments (for example, business law to business students; criminal justice law to criminal justice or political science majors). Also, virtually all higher education institutions have legal departments to represent the institution in various legal matters. Many law schools hire lawyers for administration positions including Admissions, Career Development, and Student and Alumni Relations.
