    Abrams Clinical Fellowship

    Abrams Clinical Fellowship

    The Yale Information Society Project (ISP) is now accepting applications for an Abrams Clinical Fellowship at Yale Law School beginning in July 2015. The fellowship lasts one year and may be renewed for a second year.  Working with Yale faculty and experienced media attorneys, the Abrams Clinical Fellow will co-teach and help supervise, the Media Freedom and Information Access Clinic (MFIA), which is part of the Abrams Institute for Freedom of Expression.

    About the Media Freedom and Information Access Clinic and the Abrams Institute for Freedom of Expression

    The Media Freedom and Information Access Clinic (MFIA) is dedicated to increasing government transparency, defending the essential work of news gatherers, and protecting freedom of expression  in the digital age through impact litigation, direct legal services, and policy work. The clinic’s mission is to support robust investigative journalism and to promote the public’s right of access to information in the defense of democracy.  The MFIA Clinic’s docket of cases is diverse, but focuses primarily on litigation matters in four areas: (1) Government Operations and Transparency; (2) Constitutional Right of Access to Official Proceedings, Records and Actions; (3) National Security and Democratic Oversight; and (4) Privacy, Infrastructure Freedom and Freedom of Speech. Visit the MFIA website to learn more at the Clinic’s work.

    Yale law students in the clinic represent a range of clients, including journalists, news organizations, non-profits, researchers, activists and others.  Students work under the supervision of a full--time Clinical Lecturer, the Abrams Clinical Fellow, and, on occasion, outside supervising attorneys. Students are involved in all aspects of representation, including client contact, research, drafting of legal documents, and appearing in court to argue on behalf of clients.  The clinic is currently directed by Clinical Lecturer and media attorney David Schulz and by Professor Jack Balkin.

    The MFIA Clinic is part of the Abrams Institute for Freedom of Expression and administered by the Yale Information Society Project.  The Abrams Institute for Freedom of Expression promotes freedom of speech, freedom of the press, and access to information as informed by the values of democracy and human freedom. The Abrams Institute is made possible by a generous gift from Floyd Abrams, one of the country's leading experts in freedom of speech and press issues, who both graduated from and has taught at Yale Law School. The Yale Information Society Project is an interdisciplinary center that studies the implications of the Internet and new information technologies for law and society.  Both the Abrams Institute and the Yale ISP are directed by Professor Jack Balkin

The Fellowship is designed for a lawyer with a minimum of four years of relevant practice experience who is interested in preparing for a career in law school clinical teaching. The Fellow will work with the Ludwig Community and Economic Development Clinic (CED).

    CED is a semester-long, in-house clinic offered in both fall and spring semesters, with a substantial number of continuing students who have completed the seminar but remain enrolled in the clinic to handle ongoing or new cases. Clients include non-profit and for-profit corporations, community development financial institutions, advocacy organizations, neighborhood associations, governmental entities, social enterprises and merchants associations. Their missions range from building access to financial services among low-income people to bringing arts institutions and grocery stores to chronically under-resourced communities to breaking down barriers to affordable housing development in high-opportunity communities. All our clients share an interest in promoting economic opportunity and mobility among low and moderate-income people.

    On behalf of our clients, our students negotiate and draft contracts; provide advice on the tax consequences of deal structures and entity choices; structure and carry out real estate transactions; represent borrowers and lenders in financings; engage in legislative and regulatory advocacy; form for-profit and not-for-profit entities; and resolve land use and environmental issues. The Clinic is open to students from the Schools of Law, Management, Divinity, Forestry and Environmental Studies, Public Health, and Architecture. In addition to representing clients, students in their first semester of the clinic take a seminar which covers federal, state and local policies affecting urban and suburban places; substantive law in tax, real estate development, and corporate governance; and transactional and regulatory lawyering skills, such as negotiation and drafting contracts.

    The Fellow’s responsibilities include representing clients, supervising students, assisting in teaching classes, and pursuing a scholarship and research agenda. Candidates must be prepared to apply for admission to the Connecticut bar. (Pursuant to a recent state bar admission amendment, candidates may qualify for admission without examination.) All work will be conducted with the support of the clinical faculty, principally Clinical Associate Professor Anika Singh Lemar.

    Candidates must be able to work both independently and as part of a team, and must possess strong written and oral communication skills. Annual salary is $63,000. In addition, the Fellow will receive health benefits and access to university facilities.

    The University of Detroit Mercy School of Law seeks to hire a tenured or tenure-track faculty member to begin in July 2015 to direct its new Intellectual Property Law Clinic. 

    The School of Law is located in the heart of downtown Detroit, just blocks away from the U.S. Patent & Trademark Office’s new Elijah J. McCoy Satellite Office. The new Intellectual Property Law Clinic is certified by the USPTO and will serve the growing creative and entrepreneurial community in Detroit with respect to intellectual property issues.  In 2012, the USPTO chose Detroit as the location for its first satellite office because Detroit and its surrounding communities are home to one of the largest concentrations of intellectual property attorneys in the United States.

    The Intellectual Property Clinic responds to the rapid rise of Detroit's creative class in recent years, as inventors, engineers, and artists have been drawn to the Motor City.  In 2014, Forbes magazine ranked Detroit one of the most creative cities based, in part, on the number of inventors, artists and musicians who live in the area. Additional information regarding the Intellectual Property Clinic and the School of Law can be found at:

    The School of Law is located at the Riverfront Campus in Downtown Detroit and is within  walking distance of federal, state, and municipal courts, the region’s largest law firms, and major corporations, including General Motors, Quicken Loans, and Comerica Bank.  The School is also uniquely situated two blocks from the Detroit-Windsor Tunnel, an international border crossing that links Detroit, Michigan with Windsor, Ontario, Canada.   Detroit offers residents and visitors a dynamic variety of cultural and entertainment attractions that are easily accessible from the Law School, including the Detroit Institute of Arts (housing a world-class art collection), the Detroit Symphony, the Detroit Opera House, the Detroit Zoo, the Henry Ford Museum, Eastern Market (historic farmer’s market), and major league sports teams.

    Applicants must have a law degree, strong academic background, practical or clinical experience in the field of intellectual property, and a record or the promise of excellence and high scholarly achievement.  Applicants must also either be a registered patent attorney or patent agent in good standing with the USPTO and possess at least three years of experience in prosecuting patent applications before the USPTO within the last five years or be a licensed attorney in good standing with the highest court of any state and possess at least three years of experience in prosecuting trademark applications before the USPTO within the last five years.  The successful candidate will demonstrate the enthusiasm to lead and inspire our students to excel in representing the clinic’s clients.

    As Michigan’s largest, most comprehensive private university, the University of Detroit Mercy is an independent Catholic institution of higher education sponsored by the Religious Sisters of Mercy and Society of Jesus. The university seeks qualified candidates who will contribute to the University's urban mission, commitment to diversity, and tradition of scholarly excellence.
