    The Fellow’s responsibilities include representing WIRAC clients, supervising students, assisting in teaching WIRAC classes, and working on one’s own scholarship. In addition, the Fellow may be asked to co-teach a section of a half-semester experimental program for first-year students, Introduction to Legal Research and Writing.

    MSU’s Immigration Law Clinic provides opportunities for students to learn the practice of law in a well-supervised and academically rigorous program. The direct representation of clients is the core of the students’ experience in the clinic, and the clinic seeks to maintain a diverse and challenging docket. Though a core of immigration law content is always present, the clinic selects cases with attention to pedagogical concerns, community need, and impact to provide students with opportunities to engage as attorneys in a variety of contexts. Now in its sixth year, the Immigration Law Clinic has represented clients from 76 different countries. The docket includes removal defense, Special Immigrant Juvenile Status, U-visas, VAWA, asylum, refugee adjustments, naturalization and appellate matters before the Board of Immigration Appeals and the Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals.

The current docket includes approximately 100 children in removal proceedings and an approximately equal number of clients seeking other forms of relief. Through this varied casework, students build not only knowledge and skills, but also the exercise of judgment, the formation of professional identity and the development of a critical and reflective perspective on legal systems.

    The Immigration Fellow will work in coordination with Immigration Law Clinic faculty and Supervising Attorneys, on all aspects of the program. The fellow will receive an annual salary of $50,000.00, together with generous benefits.

    The University of Michigan Law Clinical Fellows Program seeks applicants for a fellowship in its Detroit Neighborhood Entrepreneurs Project, in the Community and Economic Development Clinic (CEDC). This is a two year appointment with the possibility of extension for a third year.

    The Clinical Fellows Program is designed to allow attorneys to explore the possibility of a career in clinical teaching and fully support them in that endeavor. Michigan Clinical Fellows gain valuable experience and mentoring in clinical pedagogy and in their substantive area of practice. Their duties include clinical teaching and student supervision in conjunction with a clinic director, and participation in the operation and development of the clinic in which they teach. Support is provided for professional development and scholarship.

    The Detroit Neighborhood Entrepreneurs Project is a new initiative in the CEDC, supported by the JP Morgan Chase Foundation, that works with entrepreneurs and small businesses in the City of Detroit. The clinic will help to serve the needs of small businesses in Detroit, who often suffer from a well-documented lack of access to capital, to business skills and legal advice, and to networks for mentoring and sales opportunities.

    The fellow will partner with faculty at the Ross School of Business, the Stamps School of Art and Design, and the School of Computer Science and Engineering, as well as other schools and departments, in order to bring the resources of Michigan to bear on the needs of small businesses and entrepreneurs in Detroit.

    The CEDC currently provides transactional legal services to nonprofits and community organizations, and social and creative enterprises in Detroit and the metro Detroit area. The Clinic works with both start-up and established clients. New organizations seek assistance in formation, governance, tax and regulatory compliance. More established organizations seeks the CEDC’s assistance to accommodate their organizations’ and programs’ growth: draft and negotiate contract and leases; create worker cooperatives and social enterprises; counsel regarding land use, permits and other regulations; provide tax advice on income-generating activities; advise on employment issues; counsel on risk management; and research and advise on intellectual property issues.

    The successful applicant will have a minimum of 3 years’ experience in at least one of the CEDC’s core areas of practice, a strong interest in clinical teaching, a demonstrated commitment to engage in public interest lawyering through transactional work in under-resourced communities, experience working in diverse settings, and potential for scholarship and success as a clinical teacher. We are particularly interested in candidates with experience in small business and entrepreneurial practice areas. Candidates must hold a J.D. degree and be eligible for licensure in Michigan. Michigan’s Clinical Fellows salaries and benefits are very competitive. The fellowship begins during the summer of 2016.

    Questions can be directed to Associate Dean David Santacroce at dasanta@umich.edu or 734-763-4319. We will accept applications until February 15, 2016. Applicants should send a letter of interest and résumé to:
