For attorneys seeking in-house jobs in the academic sector, Los Angeles stands out on its own. There are 12 reputed law schools in the city and opportunities range from faculty positions to in-house attorney positions. In case of most job openings in a law school, whether that of an Assistant Dean of Marketing Communications or of an Assistant Dean of Career Services, attorneys always have a preference. So, for any Los Angeles attorney, finding academic jobs is much easier than for those living in cities with far fewer law schools, or none at all.

There are numerous openings in the academic sector for Los Angeles attorneys, as legal job boards would show to anyone interested. A quick glance shows a law school looking for a chief legal officer, whose basic purpose is to provide the services of a general counsel. Another law school has an opening for a part-time lecturer where they want a local attorney, and there is also the need of a tax attorney to work as Assistant Professor of Clinical Accounting.

Leaving aside traditional law school jobs like lecturer, professor or dean and related roles, law schools have been increasing the numbers of jobs where a local attorney remains the first choice, and sometimes, the only choice. Such positions also keep being complexity of regulatory compliance keeps increasing. And Los Angeles, with a dozen law schools, abounds in such opportunities.

Of course, academic attorneys or education attorneys also have jobs with traditional law firms and it is not surprising to come across advertisements for a position like that of a Senior Counsel who, besides general employment and litigation areas, will also have to address issues related to academic affairs, student affairs and so on.
