All pre-tenure faculty meet with the Dean during the first year of appointment to review the criteria and expectations for reappointment, tenure and promotion in the law school. This is an opportunity as well for pre-tenure faculty to ask questions about the process.
After the first year of appointment, pre-tenure faculty meet with the Dean annually no later than June 30 of each year. Faculty members should provide the Dean with an up-to-date CV and other relevant information in advance. Further details can be found in the Collective Agreement (Part 4), Article 5.02(a).
All faculty members who are continuing on in the same appointment from June 30 to July 1 must submit an annual faculty activity report to the Dean's Office. This includes both Lecturer and tenure-track faculty appointments. The reporting period is April 1 of the previous year to March 31 of the current year, and the deadline for submitting is usually late in Term 2 of each Winter Session, with the exact date confirmed by email.
