BROOKLYN LAW SCHOOL seeks a one-year visitor from the academy or from practice to co-teach (with Stacy Caplow) the Safe Harbor Clinic, our immigration clinic. The clinic is offered each semester and allows students to enroll for an additional semester to continue and complete case work. The Safe Harbor Project generally handles a caseload of applications for humanitarian relief, including asylum U & T visas, and executive pardons but also can represent clients on bond hearings, appeals and other immigration matters.
The visitor will be a part of our vibrant group of clinical faculty members who teach in our eight in-house clinics and direct our externships. See https://www.brooklaw.edu/academics/curriculum/clinicalofferings for a description of all of our programs. The visitor will be welcomed into the general life of the law school, including supporting immigration-related student pro bono organizations and activities.
The visit is for the 2018-2019 academic year but can begin as early as this spring/summer. The ideal candidate will have at least five years of immigration practice experience. Clinical teaching experience is a plus.
We will begin accepting applications immediately. Applications will be accepted until the position is filled.
To apply, please send a cover letter and resume to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line Safe Harbor Visitor. Feel free to spread this job announcement to all of your networks. And apologies for cross-posting.
