    DUKE UNIVERSITY SCHOOL OF LAW is hiring a Clinic Director for its Health Justice Clinic.

    Duke University’s Law School seeks a dynamic and proven lawyer-advocate to lead its oldest law clinic, the Health Justice Clinic. The Health Justice Clinic has a proud and significant history within the Law School and is a well-recognized and valuable resource for the community.  The Director will be considered for an appointment to clinical faculty.  This appointment offers a rare opportunity to join a law school with deep faculty, student and institutional engagement in health law and policy and a strong and well-resourced Clinical Program.  

    The Health Justice Clinic is the oldest of Duke Law School’s current clinics.  Twenty- five years ago, clinical faculty and law students began providing legal services to clients suffering from HIV/AIDS through the Duke Legal Assistance Project. The Project evolved over the years, first spinning off the AIDS Policy Clinic, adding a Cancer Initiative, and ultimately developing into the Health Justice Clinic that we have today.  In its current iteration, the Health Justice Clinic is dedicated to advancing issues of access, equity and justice for low-income individuals and communities within the health care system.  It enjoys strong student interest and achieves significant impacts through its direct service and policy advocacy.  The Health Justice Clinic is staffed by a Director and Supervising Attorney and supported by a shared Office Manager and Director of Clinical Programs.

    The precise contours of the Director position and future direction of the Clinic will reflect the strengths and interests of the successful applicant.  We seek a clinical leader to establish and implement a compelling vision for the Clinic while continuing to provide the highest quality learning opportunities for students and responding to the essential legal needs of the community.  In addition to a strong record of clinical teaching, intellectual engagement, and leadership in the field, the ideal candidate will have a demonstrated record of public interest lawyering in areas of health law, health equity, and the social determinants of health. At Duke Law, clinical faculty teach other courses or seminars in addition to clinics. Faculty also have the opportunity and support to pursue other academic interests, including research and scholarship related to their areas of expertise, which can include collaboration with doctrinal faculty.

    This is an exciting time for clinical and experiential education at Duke Law School.  The Clinical Program, which currently consists of 11 individual clinics, is an integral component of the Law School’s curricular focus on professional development and problem solving. The successful candidate will actively engage with faculty from across the Law School and University to continue to grow and strengthen this key part of the curriculum.  Opportunities for interdisciplinary engagement are extensive, as Duke Law School is part of a top research university that includes a world-renowned School of Medicine.

    The position of Director of the Health Justice Clinic at Duke Law is open for the 2021-22 academic year and beyond. We would expect the Director to join the Duke Law faculty in the summer of 2022.  Minimum requirements include a J.D. (or foreign equivalent), membership in the North Carolina Bar (or eligibility for admission and a willingness to become a member), and at least seven years combined experience practicing and/or teaching in a related area of law. Specific academic title and terms of employment will be determined based upon successful applicant’s qualifications.

    Information about Duke University’s requirements for COVID 19 vaccines for faculty, staff and students are published here: https://covidvaccine.duke.edu/.

    Interested applicants must apply via Academic Jobs Online (https://academicjobsonline.org/ajo/jobs/20477).  Applicants should also submit a letter of interest and résumé via email to Cynthia Cammarn at cynthia.cammarn@law.duke.edu.

    STANFORD LAW SCHOOL is hiring a Director of its International Human Rights Clinic

    Stanford Law School invites applications for the position on its clinical faculty of Director of its International Human Rights Clinic (IHRC). The appointment will begin in the 2022-2023 academic year.

    The IHRC is one of ten clinical programs making up the Mills Legal Clinic at Stanford Law School. The IHRC will provide students opportunities to work as lawyers, on behalf of the clinic’s clients, on human rights projects such as investigation, advocacy, and litigation. We anticipate that the IHRC’s work will mirror the approach of practicing human rights attorneys, employ a range of lawyering methods, and reflect a thoughtful engagement with best practices of international human rights lawyering.

    The IHRC Director will have the opportunity to develop a vision for the direction of the clinic, and the particular matters to be handled by the IHRC will be determined by the Clinic Director. Decisions about the overall direction of the IHRC’s work will be made in consultation with the Law School’s Director of Clinical Education and the Law School’s clinical faculty.

    All of the clinics at Stanford Law School operate on a full-time basis, with the expectation that each clinic is offered full-time in two out of three quarters that make up the academic year. Students enrolled in the IHRC (typically 8-10 students) will devote a full quarter (approximately 12 weeks) to the work of the Clinic on a full-time basis (i.e., enrolled in no other classes). At the director’s discretion, some students may continue on as Advanced Clinic students, depending on the circumstances.

    Duties of the Director of the IHRC include:

    • Developing the clinic’s operating plan;
    • Directly supervising Stanford law students;
    • Identifying and developing clients;
    • Managing all projects and clients;
    • Developing the curriculum for the IHRC;
    • Hiring, supervising and collaborating with a Clinical Supervising Attorney;
    • Supervising and collaborating with Clinic support staff;
    • Teaching the clinical seminar during the two quarters each academic year that the clinic is working with sets of new students;
    • Collaborating with clinical and other faculty at the Law School;
    • Attending conferences and interacting with faculty at other institutions;
    • Participating in faculty governance at the Law School (depending on the status of the appointment, as discussed below);
    • Participating with other clinical faculty in the governance of the Mills Legal Clinic; and
    • Acting as liaison with the public and the Law School community.

    We expect that the appointment as Director of the IHRC will be accompanied, depending on experience, by either an appointment as a Professor of Law within the Law School’s clinical-tenure structure or by an appointment on track to clinical tenure.

    We seek candidates with the following qualifications:

    • Distinguished practice experience for at least five years as an international human rights lawyer;
    • Demonstrated excellence in clinical teaching (or the supervision of law students) or demonstrated potential for such excellence in teaching or supervision;
    • Strong commitment to clinical education;
    • An academic record that demonstrates the capacity to be an active participant in the Law School’s academic community as well as the international human rights and clinical education communities;
    • Membership in the California State Bar, or a willingness to take the examination necessary for admission as soon as possible (prior to supervision of students);
    • Excellent writing and analytic skills;
    • Experience and ability to direct complex projects;
    • Ability to work in a self-directed and entrepreneurial environment; and
    • A track record of working well in a collegial environment.

    Interested applicants should send a cover letter and resume (with at least three references) to Jayashri Srikantiah, Associate Dean of Clinical Education, Stanford Law School, via the following email address: millsclinic@law.stanford.edu.

    Applications will be accepted until the position is filled but applicants are strongly encouraged to submit their materials by December 3, 2021.

    Stanford is an equal employment opportunity and affirmative action employer. All qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, national origin, disability, protected veteran status, or any other characteristic protected by law.

    GEORGETOWN LAW seeks a Graduate Teaching Fellow for its Social Enterprise & Nonprofit Law Clinic

    Description of the Clinic

    The Social Enterprise & Nonprofit Law Clinic at Georgetown University Law Center offers pro bono corporate and transactional legal services to social enterprises, nonprofit organizations, worker cooperatives, and select small businesses headquartered in Washington, D.C. and working locally or internationally. Through the Clinic, law students learn to translate legal theory into legal practice by engaging in the supervised practice of law for educational credit. The Clinic’s goals are consistent with Georgetown University's long tradition of public service. The Clinic’s goals are to:

    • Teach law students the materials, expectations, strategies, and methods of transactional lawyering, as well as an appreciation for how transactional law can be used in the public interest.
    • Represent organizations in corporate and transactional legal matters.
    • Facilitate the growth of social enterprise in the D.C. area.

    The Clinic’s local focus not only allows the Clinic to give back to the community it calls home, but also gives students an opportunity to explore and understand the challenges and strengths of the D.C. community beyond the Georgetown Law campus. As D.C. experiences increasing income inequality, it becomes increasingly important for the Clinic to provide legal assistance to organizations that serve and empower vulnerable D.C. communities. Students are taught how to become partners in enterprise for their clients with the understanding that innovative transactional lawyers understand both the legal and non-legal incentive structures that drive organizations.

    Description of Fellowship

    The two-year fellowship is an ideal position for a transactional lawyer interested in transitioning into legal academia and developing teaching and supervisory abilities in a setting that emphasizes a dual commitment—clinical education of law students and transactional law employed in the public interest. The fellow will have several areas of responsibility, with an increasing role as the fellowship progresses. Over the course of the fellowship, the fellow will: (i) supervise students in representing nonprofit organizations and social enterprises on transactional, operational, and corporate governance matters, (ii) share responsibility for teaching seminar sessions, and (iii) share in the administrative and case handling responsibilities of the Clinic. Fellows also participate in a clinical pedagogy seminar and other activities designed to support an interest in clinical teaching and legal education. Successful completion of the fellowship results in the award of an L.L.M. in Advocacy from Georgetown University. The fellowship start date is August 1, 2022, and the fellowship is for two years, ending July 31, 2024.

    Teaching fellows receive an annual stipend of approximately $57,000 in the first year and $60,000 in the second year, health and dental benefits, and all tuition and fees in the LL.M. program. As full-time students, teaching fellows qualify for deferment of their student loans. In addition, teaching fellows may be eligible for loan repayment assistance from their law schools.

    Qualifications

    Applicants must have at least 3 years of post J.D. legal experience. Preference will be given to applicants with experience in a transactional area of practice such as nonprofit law and tax, community economic development law, corporate law, intellectual property, real estate, and finance. Applicants with a strong commitment to economic justice are encouraged to apply. Applicants must be admitted or willing to be admitted to the District of Columbia Bar.

    Application Process

    Applications are being accepted on a rolling basis. To apply, send a resume, an official or unofficial law school transcript, and a detailed letter of interest as soon as possible but no later than January 15, 2022. The letter should be no longer than two pages and address a) why you are interested in this fellowship; b) what you can contribute to the Clinic; c) your experience with transactional matters and/or corporate law; and d) anything else that you consider pertinent. Please address your application to Professor Alicia Plerhoples, Georgetown Law, 600 New Jersey Ave., NW, Suite 352, Washington, D.C. 20001, and email it to Clinic Office Manager, Maria Islam, mi368@georgetown.edu. Emailed applications are preferred.
