PENN STATE DICKINSON LAW invites applications for entry level candidates for two full-time, multi-year contract Clinical Faculty positions, anticipated to begin in the Fall of 2015. We welcome candidates interested in serving as director of one of two new clinics, a Medical-Legal Partnership Clinic or a Legislative Policy Partnership Clinic, to maximize opportunities for students based at our Carlisle location. Dickinson Law is located in Carlisle, Pennsylvania, near top-quality health care institutions such as Penn State Hershey Medical Center and government centers in Harrisburg and Washington, D.C. In addition to development and supervision of students in a new clinic, candidates will have the opportunity to teach one or more doctrinal courses in their field, such as courses on Health Care Law, Law and Medicine, Administrative Law, Lobbying, State-and Local Government, etc. We seek applicants with excellent academic records, relevant experience and recommendations, and who have specific interest in supervising law students in practice-based clinical settings. Penn State Dickinson Law, with more than 150 years of history in Carlisle, is one of two fully accredited Penn State law schools. The overarching mission of the faculty at Penn State Dickinson Law is to produce lawyers who are equipped with the skills and competencies necessary to practice and excel in an increasingly global legal market. Commitment to an inclusive community is also part of our educational ethos. These two new clinics will supplement our rich experiential learning tradition, including our existing Community Law Clinic and Children’s Advocacy Clinic. Candidates must be a member of the Pennsylvania Bar or willing to become a member as soon as practicable. For general inquiries, contact Carlisle Appointments Chair, Prof. Katherine C.
