The Women’s Employment Rights Clinic at Golden Gate University School of Law invites applicants for a one-semester supervising clinical attorney and visiting professor position for Fall 2013. The Clinic focuses on the employment needs of the most vulnerable workers – low-wage and immigrant women. We are looking for an experienced employment practitioner, knowledgeable about wage and hour laws and other legal issues affecting low-wage workers and with skills and willingness to take primary responsibility in Clinic cases. The applicant must have interest in mentoring and working with students in an on campus, live-client law clinic, and in classroom teaching. Experience teaching or supervising students is strongly preferred. This is a full time position and the expectation is that the visiting professor would be at the clinic at least 40 hours per week. California bar membership is required. Spanish speaking skills will be extremely helpful.
WERC recently established the Elfenworks Center for Employment Justice (ECEJ), with a generous grant from the Elfenworks Foundation, to focus on advocacy, legal services, and education for domestic workers and group home caregivers. The Supervising Clinical Attorney will have primary responsibility for day-to-day supervision of student clinicians, will handle and develop clinic litigation, policy work and community collaboration, and will assist in teaching the Clinic seminar.
The position is from approximately July through December 2013, with the Fall semester starting in mid-August 2013. The position has the potential to continue as a one semester position for two additional years and eventually become year round full-time position.
The law school welcomes applications from women and minority candidates, and others whose background may contribute to faculty diversity. There is an excellent University benefit package and salary will depend on experience.
Please circulate to anyone who may be interested.
Please send letter and resume by February 8, 2013 to:
