The University of Michigan Law School is seeking to hire a clinical faculty member with a background in transactions to teach in and direct its Transactional Lab & Clinic (TLC). This is a contractual appointment that starts summer 2018 and can lead to a presumptively renewable long-term contract.
TLC students represent small, for- and non-profit organizations in southeastern Michigan and large, for-and non-profit organizations around the world. Typical matters include incorporation, organizational governance, commercial agreements, licensing, and other transactional matters.
The successful applicant will have experience representing for- and/or non-profit organization on transactional matters. A demonstrated interest in clinical teaching and working with under-represented members of the business community is also highly desired. Candidates must hold a J.D. degree and be eligible for licensure in Michigan.
Michigan has 18 in-house clinics and guarantees every student admission to at least one. Clinical faculty are initially appointed to a 3-year contract which may be renewed for a second term if the candidate demonstrates the potential to meet the standards for a presumptively renewable 7-year contract. They are considered for promotion to that presumptively renewable contract near the end of their second 3-year term. Clinical faculty have 9-month academic year appointments and are eligible for leaves and financial support for summer case coverage, special projects, and scholarship. They have governance rights that closely parallel tenured and tenure track faculty. Michigan’s faculty salaries and benefits are extremely competitive.
Questions can be directed to Associate Dean David Santacroce at firstname.lastname@example.org or 734-763-4319. The application deadline is October 12, 2017. Applicants should send a letter of interest and résumé to:
