This School is Seriously Committed to Hiring Full-Time Teachers

CUNY School of Law's utilization of full-time teaching staff ranks among the highest in the nation, with 76.0% of instructors employed full time.

Low Percentage of Part-Time Teachers (Adjuncts)

At CUNY School of Law , only 24.0% of the teaching staff are part-time non-faculty or non-tenure track faculty. This use of adjuncts is far below the national average of 51.4%, which could be indicative of CUNY School of Law's commitment to building a strong, long-term instructional team.

Colleges often use part-time professors and adjuncts to teach courses, rather than full-time faculty. This hiring practice is primarily a way to save money amid increasingly tight budgets. However, it is a controversial practice with strong views on either side. We encourage you to understand this topic more deeply, and how the colleges you are interested in approach faculty hiring. It's your education and your money on the line. Make sure you know what you are getting for it.
