Adjunct Lecturer in Law – Sports Law in Practice – (Los Angeles, California, United States)

USC Gould School of Law is seeking an instructor to develop curriculum for and teach our online Sports Law in Practice (LAW-718) class. The instructor will spend 10-15 hours/week developing curriculum for this new online course alongside our team of instructional designers. 

The instructor will then teach the course in 2025. We expect that the instructor will spend approximately 10-15 hours of work per week on instruction of the course, including the timely grading of assignments and communication with students. Students enrolled in this course will be in our Online LL.M., Online M.S.L., and various of our Online Certificate programs.

Courses will be developed and taught fully online; lecturers may work from any location. Candidates should have strong professional background in the field, preferably with law school and/or online teaching experience.

Sports Law in Practice (2 units)

This course will examine the legal relationships between various sports industry participants (athletes, teams, leagues, governing bodies, sports facilities, licensees, broadcasters, and fans) through various legal lenses (contract law, antitrust law, labor law, intellectual property law, constitutional law, and tort law). 

USC reserves the “Adjunct” appointment for faculty teaching less than full-time at USC, who are employed full-time in a primary profession or career elsewhere. Adjunct faculty typically teach only one course per year but, in exceptional cases, may teach one course per semester, if approved by the dean.

The base salary range for this position is $2,304 – $9,466 per semester. When extending an offer of employment, the University of Southern California considers factors such as (but not limited to) the scope and responsibilities of the position, the number of units per course, the candidate’s work experience, education/training, key skills, internal peer equity, federal, state and local laws, contractual stipulations, grant funding, as well as external market and organizational considerations.

Equity, diversity, inclusion, opportunity, and access are of central importance to the Gould School of Law. Gould holds a unique position in society, and within the university, as every aspect of these principles is influenced by and can be protected through legal rules and institutions. At Gould, we are proudly committed to maintaining a community in which each person respects the rights of others to live, work, and learn in peace and dignity, to be proud of who and what they are, and to have equal opportunity to realize their full potential as individuals and members of society.
