Suffolk University Law School in Boston invites applications for a tenure-track clinical faculty member to direct its dynamic Prosecutors Program starting in the 2018-2019 academic year. We seek candidates with strong academic records and a commitment to excellence in teaching, service, and scholarship. Prior experience in clinical teaching is preferred, though not required. At least five years of criminal prosecution experience and either admission to the Massachusetts bar, or eligibility to gain admission, are required.
The Prosecutors Program is a clinic hybrid in which students are embedded in local District Attorney Offices, but closely supervised and taught by clinical faculty.
The ideal candidate will be a self-motivated individual who will maintain and cultivate relationships with several District Attorney Offices. In addition to teaching a full-year clinic that includes a weekly seminar, all clinical faculty teach one non-clinical course in a related field.
The Prosecutors Program is one of many experiential educational offerings at Suffolk Law School and is part of two nationally ranked programs at Suffolk - the Trial and Appellate Advocacy Concentration, which was ranked 16th among such programs last year and the Clinical Programs, which was ranked 17th last year among its peers.
Suffolk Law is an equal opportunity employer and will give careful consideration to all qualified applicants regardless of race, color, national origin, religion, sex, age, disability, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, genetic information, veteran status, or any other characteristic protected by law. Suffolk Law is committed to a diverse faculty and strongly encourages applicants from historically under-represented groups, such as those historically under-represented because of race, color, gender, religion, disability, national origin, or LGBTQ status.
