Columbia Law School invites applications for a clinical teaching position at the Clinical Professor or Associate Clinical Professor level, beginning on July 1, 2018.
Applicants in any field of practice are welcome to apply, especially those with transactional clinical experience. We are not aiming to fill a position in any particular clinic; applicants can elect either to teach in one of our existing clinics (see http://www.law.columbia.edu/clinics) or to create a new clinic. We wish to hire faculty committed to providing a powerful individual and collective learning experience that engages students actively in working to pursue the clinic's goals.
Applicants should have at least seven to ten years of legal practice experience and/or teaching experience; an academic record that demonstrates the potential for clinical teaching; a license to practice law in the United States; and a demonstrated ability to work collaboratively with others. Prior clinical teaching experience and/or transactional clinical experience are preferred but not required. Our preference is to hire faculty who will create clinics or teach in an existing clinic where students serve as the primary providers of legal services, under close faculty supervision.
Like all of the clinical faculty positions at Columbia Law School, this is a non-tenure track position that is expected to lead to long term, renewable contracts. Columbia University is an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action employer --Race/Gender/Disability/Veteran.
Applicants must apply online at the Columbia University website preferably no later than October 15, 2017: academicjobs.columbia.edu/applicants/Central?quickFind=65083
