    The Mills Legal Clinic at Stanford Law School is seeking a new Clinical Supervising Attorney and Lecturer in Law (“CSA”) to work with the Director and existing Clinic Supervising Attorney in the Environmental Law Clinic (“ELC”). The new CSA will join the thriving clinical community at Stanford Law School where, together with the clinical faculty and staff, she or he will represent clients and train law students at one of the country’s leading institutions for legal scholarship and education.

    The ELC, established in 1997, is one of eleven clinics comprising the Mills Legal Clinic, which occupies an entire floor in an award-winning central campus building opened in summer 2011. The Stanford clinical program is distinctive in that students participate in a clinic on a full-time basis; the clinic is the only course a student takes during the term of enrollment.

    The ELC works on environmental, natural resource, and energy matters representing non-profit conservation organizations and institutions. The ELC’s docket focuses primarily on marine resources, endangered species, water quality, public lands, environmental justice, and climate change issues. We engage in a mix of federal and state court litigation and policy advocacy work. Students enrolled in the clinic investigate cases, develop strategies, advise clients, work with scientific experts, build and review administrative records, draft complaints, briefs, petitions, substantive letters, and policy papers, and present oral arguments.

    The CSA will report to, and work in collaboration with, Professor Deborah Sivas, director of the ELC. The CSA will participate in all activities of the ELC, including substantial responsibility for directing litigation in trial and appellate courts and before administrative agencies, supervision of student work (involving close review and iterative editing of written student work and preparation of students for oral advocacy), active participation in field trips and weekly seminar sessions focused on core lawyering skills, oversight of general clinic rounds, and development of new cases or project opportunities for the ELC. In addition, the CSA will function as part of the Environmental and Natural Resource Law & Policy Program, working with the existing CSA and environmental faculty to meet the Program’s student mentoring and alumni stewardship needs.

    Mills Legal Clinic attorneys are part of the intellectual community within the clinical program, Stanford Law School, and Stanford University at large. CSAs are invited to attend weekly faculty workshops at which scholars from Stanford and throughout the world present research and works in progress. The Law School also provides resources for its lawyers to participate in continuing education and other professional development activities. This is a full-time, yearround continuing position, but case load allowing, CSAs may have time during summers to pursue their own scholarship.

    More information on the ELC can be found at: https://law.stanford.edu/environmental-law-clinic/

    POSITION REQUIREMENTS

    Applicants should have:

    • at least seven to ten years of state/federal environmental law practice experience, including significant litigation experience

    • sound judgment and exceptional ethical standards
    • demonstrated potential for excellence in teaching and student supervision
    • strong organizational and team work skills

    The salary is based on a formula that is competitive with similar positions. Applications should be submitted as soon as possible and will be considered on a rolling basis until the position is filled. Start date is no later than September 1, 2016.

    The Center for Juvenile Law and Policy (CJLP) at Loyola Law School is a community legal clinic and research center dedicated to advocating on behalf of youth in the juvenile delinquency system.

    Social Workers are a vital part of our practice model. The social worker will be integrated into almost all areas of the law students’ training curriculum and our work with youth involved in the juvenile justice system. Our model of holistic representation begins with a comprehensive assessment of our clients and their families to determine what services need to be put in place to ensure that our clients are in the best position possible to succeed. The assessment also allows the team to understand the client in a holistic manner. The social worker’s assessment will be used during the course of the case to craft the most appropriate disposition for the client and to determine what, if any, additional expertise needs to be brought to bear on the case. Social workers are vital to defense preparation and collaboration with experts when our young clients have mental health issues or developmental disabilities that impact their competency to stand trial and ability to be transferred to adult court. The social worker works with students to create innovative disposition alternatives for the court and, along with the students, provides pro-active post-disposition support and case management to assure children successfully complete probation.

    Responsibilities will include, but are not limited to:

    • Advocacy on behalf of children who are holistically represented by the Juvenile Justice Clinic and Youth Justice Education Clinic.
    • Clinical assessment; intervention; rehabilitation, sentencing, and resource recommendations.
    • Case management and support of clients in completing terms of probation.
    • Supervision of MSW interns.
    • Report directly to the supervising Social Worker. Perform other related duties as assigned or requested by the Clinical Director and supervising Social Worker.

    The Law School reserves the right to add or change duties at any time.

    Qualifications:

    • Experience working with or supervising graduate students; experience working with attorneys.
    • Working knowledge of the delinquency and dependency system in Los Angeles; extensive knowledge of Los Angeles community resources and network of services for at-risk youths and their families. 
    • Proven dedication to serving at-risk youth and criminal/juvenile justice reform.
    • Exemplary communication and advocacy skills required.
    • Typically a Master of Arts Degree in Social Work and a minimum of two years post-graduate experience. 
    • Spanish speaking required.
    • The social worker will be expected to continue upgrading knowledge, skills, and abilities needed to keep abreast of regulation/policy changes.

    Applications should include a resume, cover letter, and writing sample. To apply and for more information, please go to https://jobs.lmu.edu/postings/26569. Applications will be accepted and reviewed on a rolling basis. Preference will be given to complete applications received by August 1, 2016.
