    The University of Denver College of Law announces our new Master of Laws (LL.M.) Clinical Teaching Fellowship Program, which offers attorneys the opportunity to gain extensive practice in law school clinical teaching under the supervision of experienced clinical faculty. Fellows also learn about academic legal scholarship and, with the assistance of a faculty mentor, produce publishable-quality scholarship during their residence. Fellows receive an annual stipend and are awarded an LL.M. upon their successful completion of the fellowship. It is the explicit goal of the fellowship to prepare Fellows for a career in clinical legal education.

    Fellows enroll in a three-year program during which they are in residence at one of Denver Law’s five in-house clinics: the Civil Litigation Clinic, the Civil Rights Clinic, the Community Economic Development Clinic, the Criminal Defense Clinic, and the Environmental Law Clinic. Fellows will directly supervise J.D. students enrolled in the clinics, first as co-supervisors with clinic faculty and then on their own. Fellows also assist in teaching clinic seminars and perform work on their own cases or other legal matters. Additionally, Fellows participate in a clinical pedagogy seminar and other activities designed to support an interest in clinical teaching and legal education. In addition to the above requirements, to complete the degree, the Fellow must write a law review article of publishable quality.

    Each of Denver Law’s five clinics will offer one clinical teaching fellowship that will commence in the summer of 2015. Clinical Fellows receive an annual stipend of $45,000, health and dental benefits, and all tuition and fees in the LL.M. program. As full-time students, teaching fellows also may qualify for deferment of their student loans. In addition, teaching fellows may be eligible for loan repayment assistance from their law schools.
