    Brooklyn Law School seeks to hire a tenure-track or tenured professor to teach in our clinical program.  Our program is broad and deep (8 in-house and 17 hybrid clinics as well as 6 externships).  It has also been growing in recent years, with the addition of 5 new clinical faculty members.

    We would now like to hire someone to develop a clinic that either supplements an existing clinic or introduces a new substantive focus; emphasizes a set of skills and type of work not included in our other clinics; or works in fora which our current clinics do not.  The new clinic should provide students with opportunities to both write and develop other lawyering skills.  Please consult www.brooklaw.edu/academics/clinics to see our current offerings.

    The ideal candidate would have some teaching experience as well as a prior record as, or clear potential to be, an effective clinical teacher.  The ideal candidate would also have an interest in engaging in scholarship and teaching non-clinical courses.

    Applicants should submit a letter of interest, C.V., and contact information for three references to the Chair of the search committee, Professor David Reiss, via email to david.reiss@brooklaw.edu.  The search committee will begin reviewing applications immediately, and will conduct preliminary interviews in person and by video conference at the beginning of the Fall semester.

    Brooklyn Law School is an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action employer committed to the principle of diversity.  It is interested in receiving applications from a broad spectrum of applicants, including minorities, protected veterans, and individuals with disabilities.

    The Mills Legal Clinic of Stanford Law School welcomes applicants for the Clinical Supervising Attorney and Lecturer in Law ("CSA") position in its Religious Liberty Clinic (“RLC”)—the only full-time clinic in the country dedicated to teaching students through litigation in that field. As a member of the RLC, the CSA will not only join the core team of this landmark program but will also become part of the thriving clinical community at Stanford where, together with the faculty and staff, he or she will represent clients and train students at one of the nation’s top institutions for legal scholarship and education.

    The RLC is the newest of the eleven clinics comprising the Mills Legal Clinic—the “law firm” under which Stanford’s clinical program is housed. The RLC launched in August 2012, and has quickly become a fixture at the law school. The Stanford clinical program is unique in that students participate in a clinic on a full-time basis; the clinic is the only course a student takes during the term of enrollment. The Mills Legal Clinic occupies an entire floor in an award-winning central campus building opened just a few years ago.

    The RLC focuses on developing professional skills in a dynamic way. Specifically, its students are introduced to the “real practice of law” through their representation of a diverse group of clients in disputes arising from a wide range of beliefs and practices, and in a variety of settings. A typical project might involve a prisoner facing obstacles to religious observance; a small church, synagogue, or mosque with zoning challenges; or an employee facing religious discrimination in the workplace. Students learn and apply the laws affecting religious liberty, and are taught to counsel individual or institutional clients and litigate on their behalf with excellence, professionalism, and maturity.

    As a litigation-focused clinic, the RLC involves administrative, trial, and appellate work. Most administrative and trial work takes place in California, while appellate work is often done out of state. Because the RLC is a new and rather unique project, near-term clinic activities will also include marketing, outreach, and development efforts. Further details about the RLC’s approach and docket can be found at its website here.

    The CSA participates in all activities of the RLC, including client development, student supervision, and client representation. The CSA also assists the RLC’s faculty director with curriculum design, teaching and evaluation matters, and clinic operations. All Mills Legal Clinic attorneys are part of the intellectual community within the clinical program and the Law School and university at large. For example, CSAs are invited to attend weekly workshops at which scholars from Stanford and throughout the world present works in progress. The RLC also provides resources for its lawyers, including CSAs, to participate in continuing education and other professional development.

    Applicants for the CSA position should typically have at least three years of litigation experience, preferably at the trial level, and be members of the California bar (or be willing to take the next-offered California bar exam). Applicants must possess strong academic credentials, a developed interest in religious liberty, and organizational and team skills essential to helping run what is, in essence, a small law firm. Teaching or supervision experience (or the demonstrated potential for such skills) is desirable. 

    The salary is based on a formula that is competitive with similar positions. Applicants should submit resumes through http://stanfordcareers.stanford.edu/, noting job number 67062. Applicants should also send the following materials electronically to the RLC’s legal assistant, Hayden Rodarte at haydenr@law.stanford.edu:

    • A statement no longer than three pages describing the applicant’s: (i) litigation or other relevant experience; (ii) interest in religious liberty generally and the RLC in particular; and (iii) interest and potential for clinical supervision and teaching
    • A resume
    • A list of three professional references
    • A writing sample
    • A complete law school transcript

    Applications will be considered on a rolling basis until the position is filled. The anticipated start date is September 1, 2015, although an earlier start is possible.

    The University of Pennsylvania Law School seeks a Visitor in its Transnational Legal Clinic for the 2015-2016 academic year.  The Transnational Legal Clinic is the law school’s international human rights and immigration clinic and an integral part of the Gittis Center for Clinical Legal Studies, Penn’s endowed clinical program which offers students real-case clinical opportunities in every major lawyering role. The Clinic is also an important part of Penn Law’s international and comparative law program, and reflects the school’s commitment to teaching, scholarship, and service in the global legal environment.

    Through the Transnational Legal Clinic, students directly engage in and reflect on the role of the lawyer in settings that cut across cultures, borders, languages, and legal systems.  The Clinic’s immigration docket is comprised of asylum, Special Immigrant Juvenile Status, U visa and T visa petitions, and is evenly split between clients in removal proceedings and those seeking affirmative forms of relief.  The human rights docket is comprised of a range of cases and advocacy projects primarily in the United States that focus on migration and immigrant rights.  The Clinic is structured around a seminar that meets twice a week (approximately half of which is case rounds) and regular supervision.    

    Penn seeks candidates with strong practice experience in immigration and international human rights, distinguished academic and professional achievement, and a demonstrated commitment to clinical teaching and supervision. Candidates must have a minimum of three years of relevant practice experience; prior teaching experience is strongly preferred.  Review of candidates will begin immediately and continue until the position is filled.  The position will serve for one or both of the semesters during the 2015 – 2016 academic year. The University of Pennsylvania is an affirmative action/equal opportunity employer.  Women and minority candidates are especially encouraged to apply.

    Please submit applications (resume and cover letter) electronically to:   tlcsearch@law.upenn.edu.  Any questions can be directed to Sarah Paoletti, Director of the Transnational Legal Clinic, at paoletti@law.upenn.edu.
