Current Vacancies


CAIL is known nationally and internationally for excellence in its programs in arbitration, law enforcement, energy law, and more. From its groundbreaking establishment in 1947 by SMU law dean Robert Storey (executive trial counsel at the Nuremberg war trials and a member of the first Federal Civil Rights Commission), the organization has been a leading force in policy for law and law enforcement. Dean Storey’s Nuremberg and Warren Commission papers are housed at CAIL.

CAIL seeks a leader who has passion for and understands the mission of CAIL, to continue to build its reputation and relevancy in an ever-changing and challenging world. The president will use that passion for the mission to help inspire and motivate the organization – from its membership and board of trustees to its large and august body of volunteers. CAIL’s volunteer leadership includes renowned lawyers, judges, and other esteemed individuals who generously give their time to speak at seminars and participate in programs.

The president should be an individual who has the vision to help analyze CAIL’s Institutions, and then prioritize a strategy that will reinforce and build CAIL’s mission. The analysis should be holistic, thoroughly examining CAIL’s internal leadership, its research fellows, its institutes, and programs for opportunities to expand CAIL’s vision and reach, domestically and internationally. The analysis should also identify opportunities for collaboration with other organizations.

CAIL’s president should be a change agent who has the utmost respect for those who brought the organization to its current position of prominence. The president should be able to lead CAIL to transformation in internal leadership and work with the board in improving the organization’s operations, reach, and effectiveness – seeking to put the right pieces in place to answer the demands of a changing world. The role demands someone who can lead the organization internally, be the outward-facing champion for CAIL, and raise its profile to ensure stronger funding for the future.
