    GEORGETOWN LAW’S Environmental Law and Justice Clinic in the Institute for Public Representation (IPR) invites applications for a two-year clinical fellow/staff attorney position to start in August 2019.

    What is IPR?

    IPR is a public interest law firm and law school clinic founded by Georgetown University Law Center in 1971.  IPR serves as counsel for groups and individuals who are unable to obtain effective legal representation on issues of broad public importance.  IPR’s work is currently focused in two areas: environmental law and communications law and policy.  IPR provides third-year and second semester  second-year law students an opportunity to develop a wide range of lawyering skills by working on real cases under the supervision of faculty members and fellows (also referred to as staff attorneys).

    There are four fellow positions at IPR, and we are now recruiting for two fellows for the Environmental Law and Justice clinic in IPR.

    IPR’s Environmental Law and Justice Clinic

    IPR’s work in environmental law primarily focuses on individuals and communities, many of whom are in the Washington metropolitan area, who suffer a disproportionate share of environmental harms and enjoy fewer environmental amenities than other parts of the area in question.  Our clients have included neighborhood associations, regional, local, and tribal environmental organizations, community activists, and Indian tribes.  The Environmental Law and Justice Clinic also represents national organizations on environmental issues of national importance arising under the federal environmental laws.  We have worked on litigation involving the full array of federal, state, and local environmental laws as well as civil rights and administrative law, and have appeared in federal and state courts, including the U.S. Supreme Court and various state supreme courts, and before local zoning boards, public service commissions, and agency hearing examiners.  In addition to litigation, our environmental advocacy extends to federal and regional state agency rule-making and permitting processes, and frequently involves working to support coalitions of groups concerned with these issues. 

    The nature of the Environmental Law and Justice Clinic’s environmental projects varies from year to year depending on client need, attorney interest, and resource availability.  Because IPR conducts a clinical legal education program for sixteen Georgetown law students each semester, half of whom work on environmental projects, another key factor in selecting projects is their appropriateness for clinical teaching. 

    The students, most of whom are in their third year of law school, work in the clinic full time and receive credit for an entire semester of law school work.  The students work on projects under the supervision of an environmental clinical fellow/staff attorney and faculty member.  The students and clinical fellow/staff attorneys also participate in seminars dealing with issues of federal administrative and litigation practice, various substantive fields of law, and issues of professional responsibility as well as team project meetings in which students present some issue that has arisen in their project to their fellow students and supervisors.  Fellows/staff attorneys are offered an opportunity to co-teach seminars with a faculty member.  Under the guidance of environmental fellows/staff attorneys and the environmental clinical director, students have the chance to develop a wide range of lawyering skills as well as to consider how their personal values relate to their professional careers.

    In addition to the clinical fellow/staff attorneys, the professional staff of IPR includes two full-time members of the law school faculty.  The faculty members oversee work on projects and are responsible for teaching the seminars and grading.  The faculty member who directs the Environmental Law and Justice Clinic is Professor Hope M. Babcock.  Professor Babcock has directed IPR’s environmental program for twenty-seven years and has over forty years of experience in environmental law.  She was formerly general counsel of the National Audubon Society and served in the Carter Administration in the U.S. Department of the Interior. She also teaches environmental and natural resources law at Georgetown.

    What Do the Clinical Fellow/Staff Attorneys Do?

    The clinical fellow/staff attorneys are responsible for the day-to-day supervision of the students, and work closely with the students on improving their lawyering skills, especially legal research, writing, and analysis.  Much of the staff attorneys' time is spent guiding students in conducting legal and factual research, reviewing student drafts, making suggestions for improvement, and preparing the students for oral presentations.  The staff attorneys have their own opportunities to engage in oral and written advocacy on their projects, including the chance to argue before federal, state, or administrative judges.  They take an active role in project development and in planning other IPR activities.

    Past clinical fellow/staff attorneys have emphasized that the IPR experience is unique in several respects: 

    First, the fellowship program offers an opportunity to work on interesting, often cutting-edge projects.  Because all of our projects are handled on a pro bono basis, we have leeway to choose projects that are important, interesting, and present educational opportunities for both students and graduate fellow/staff attorneys.

    Second, graduate fellow/staff attorneys assume substantial responsibility for projects at an early stage of their careers and generally play a more important role in the decision-making process than do their contemporaries in other types of law practice.  They also have an opportunity to work on a variety of cases, at different stages of development, so they gain a broader understanding of how cases are developed and how the litigation process, in particular, works.  Graduate fellow/staff attorneys work closely with a broad range of public interest organizations, meeting others who are involved in public interest law and seeing how their organizations function.

    Third, clinical fellow/staff attorneys acquire a good practical working knowledge of both specific subject matter areas and of the federal, state, and local administrative and judicial process.

    Fourth, clinical fellow/staff attorneys have an opportunity to work closely with experienced, full time faculty members, who have substantial litigation and substantive expertise.  For those with an interest in clinical teaching, graduate fellow/staff attorneys get first-hand experience in clinical supervision, and also participate in, and often co-teach, seminars.  As part of the Law Center community, graduate fellow/staff attorneys are urged to attend faculty workshops and other programs, and to participate in a variety of on- and off-campus activities.  They are also encourage to attend workshops that will support their academic writing, if they want to pursue an academic career.

    Pay and other benefits

    The annual stipend for the position will be at least $57,000 the first year and $60,000 the second year plus an opportunity to participate in group health insurance and other benefits, including unlimited free access to a state-of-art, on-site fitness center.  The fellowship will start in August 2019 and end in August 2021.  Georgetown University Law Center awards an LL.M in Advocacy to each fellow upon completion of their two-year term.

    What Qualifications Are We Looking For?

    We are looking for applicants who demonstrate the following:

    • a commitment to public interest law
    • at least two years of relevant prior work experience in environmental law, a fellowship with an environmental organization, or a judicial clerkship
    • strong legal writing and communications skills and experience and/or interest in helping others improve their legal writing, research, and analytical skills
    • an interest in (and aptitude for) clinical legal education

    Clinical fellow/staff attorneys must be members of the D.C. Bar or take steps to apply for membership in the D.C. Bar (through examination or reciprocity) upon being accepted for the position.

    How to Apply?

    Applicants for the fellowship should submit the following:

    • a resume and law school transcript
    • a list of references, including contact information
    • a recent legal writing sample of any length that represents the applicant’s most challenging legal work (The writing sample should not be a collaborative work or a piece significantly edited by someone else.)
    • a brief statement (not longer than one single-spaced page) explaining the applicant’s interest in the position. 

    Send your application materials in a PDF file attached to an email to IPR’s Administrator, Niko Perazich, at nwp2@georgetown.edu.  The application deadline is Monday December 10th 2018.

    After reviewing the application materials, we will select a small number of applicants to be interviewed at our office.  While IPR cannot pay applicants’ travel expenses, we will try to arrange interviews at a time most convenient for the applicant.

    GEORGETOWN LAW’s Communications and Technology Law Clinic is accepting applications for a two-year, paid position as a staff attorney and clinical teaching fellow starting in August 2019.  The person hired for this position will work closely with the faculty to supervise the work of second and third year law students on high profile, cutting-edge cases before the Federal Communications Commission, the Federal Trade Commission, and federal appellate courts. Applications will be accepted and considered on a rolling basis through December 1, 2018. 

    Fellow Responsibilities

    The Communications and Technology Law Clinic has two Fellows serving staggered, two-year terms.  The Fellows exercise a great deal of responsibility for the clinic’s cases.  They work with clients and coalitions to develop strategy; meet with Commissioners, agency staff, and Congressional staff; and draft briefs, comments, and other legal documents.  Because we are located in Washington, D.C., the Fellows get to experience firsthand the interplay between Congress, federal agencies, and federal courts in developing communications and technology policy.  They also have many opportunities to network with others working in this area. 

    The Fellows receive training in clinical teaching at a two-day orientation and in a Clinical Pedagogy course that meets throughout the first year of the Fellowship.  In coordination with the faculty, each Fellow typically supervise three to five law students each semester.  Fellows assist students in developing their lawyering skills.  For example, Fellows help students develop a research plan, review and comment on student drafts, and prepare students for meetings and oral presentations.  Fellows also help to plan and teach the classroom components of the clinic.  

    Qualifications

    Applicants should have a law degree and have been admitted to the District of Columbia or another state bar.  We will also give consideration to very strong candidates who will graduate from law school in 2019 and take the bar during that summer.  The qualifications that we look for include:

    • a demonstrated interest in media, telecommunications, privacy, freedom of speech, or related legal fields;
    • practice experience in a law school clinic, a public interest organization, government, a law firm, or as a judicial clerk;
    • strong analytical and communication skills, both oral and written;
    • experience in supervision;
    • an interest in teaching law students in a clinical setting; and
    • a commitment to serving the public interest.
    • a personal statement (not longer than two double-spaced pages) setting forth the reasons for seeking the Fellowship;
    • a résumé;
    • a current law school transcript (an unofficial copy is acceptable);
    • a list of references, including contact information; and
    • one or two recent writing samples that best represent the applicant’s analytical and writing abilities.

    How to apply

    Persons interested in applying should submit the following information:

    Please save all application items in PDF format (preferably in a single PDF) and email them to IPR’s Administrator, Niko Perazich, at nwp2@georgetown.edu.  Applications should be submitted as soon as possible, but no later than December 10, 2018.  The clinic will invite selected candidates to interview either in person at Georgetown Law or via Skype.  Regretfully, the clinic cannot pay candidates’ travel expenses, but clinic staff will work to arrange interviews on dates that are convenient for out-of-town candidates.

    Stipend & Benefits

    The Fellowship pays a stipend of $57,000 for the first year and $60,000 for the second year.  Upon successful completion of the Fellowship, the Fellow will be awarded (tuition-free) an LL.M. degree in Advocacy.  In addition, Georgetown Law provides group health insurance, a retirement plan, and unlimited access to its state-of-the-art fitness center.  

    The Fellowship provides an excellent entry into technology law, public interest practice, and academia.  Because the program is widely respected by both the communications bar and the academy, Fellows typically have considerable success obtaining full-time teaching or advocacy positions after the completion of the Fellowship.  Alumni have gone to the FCC, FTC, Electronic Privacy Information Center, Common Sense Media, Electronic Frontier Foundation, Free Press, National Hispanic Media Coalition, New America’s Open Technology Institute, and Public Knowledge, as well to teaching positions in several law schools.
