    THE GEORGETOWN UNIVERSITY LAW CENTER Civil Rights Clinic invites applications for a two-year graduate fellow/staff attorney position to start in August 2020.

    Civil Rights Clinic

    The faculty member responsible for the Civil Rights Clinic and Voting Rights Institute is Professor Aderson Francois. Professor Francois joined the faculty in 2016. Prior to joining the Georgetown faculty, Professor Francois directed the Civil Rights Clinic at Howard University School of Law, where he also taught Constitutional Law, Federal Civil Rights, and Supreme Court Jurisprudence.

    CRC operates as a public interest law firm, representing individual clients and other public interest organizations, primarily in the areas of discrimination and constitutional rights, workplace fairness, and open government. Beginning in the Fall of 2016, the section expanded its work into the area of voting rights. Students interview clients, develop case theories, draft and file complaints in state and federal courts, conduct discovery, engage in motions practice, and prepare appeals. Students also file FOIA requests and analyze responsive documents, and work in coalition with other public interest organizations to develop impact cases. Recent projects include:

    o  Litigating a complex federal Freedom of Information Act suit against the Department of Defense and the CIA on behalf of researchers seeking records on “enhanced interrogation” used in the War on Terror;

    o  Litigating wage theft claims against private entities and government contractors on behalf of employees denied fair wages or overtime;

    o  Litigating retaliation claims on behalf of employees terminated for asserting their rights under FLSA and DC Wage and Hour law;

    o  Litigating on behalf of an individual improperly assessed a deficiency under Maryland consumer protection statutes;

    o  Litigating on behalf of an individual whose employer improperly denied her the lactation breaks she was entitled to under state and federal law;

    o  Litigating on behalf of an individual whose employer improperly denied her disability and pregnancy accommodations, discriminated against her on account of her national origin, and illegally assessed fees against her in connection with her resignation;

    o  Filing amicus briefs in four appellate cases – two pending before the United States Supreme Court, one in the DC Circuit, and one in the New York Court of Appeals;

    o  Filing FOIA requests and using the responsive documents to prepare reports exposing government misconduct;

    o  Preparing and arguing two appeals in federal court, one in the DC Circuit and one in the Fifth Circuit; and

    o  On behalf of a public interest organization, analyzing potential APA claims related to the recall of exploding airbags and other automobile defects.

    For more detailed information about our work, applicants should review our annual reports.

    What do the Graduate Fellows/Staff Attorneys do?

    Fellows are responsible for day-to-day supervision of the students and work closely with the students on improving their lawyering skills, especially legal writing. In the civil rights section, the fellow has principal responsibility for about half of the docket and supervises all facets of the litigation. Much of the fellow’s time is spent guiding students in legal and factual research, reviewing student drafts, making suggestions for improvement, and preparing the students for oral presentations. In recent years, fellows have worked on all phases of litigation, including taking depositions, handling evidentiary hearings, and briefing cases before federal district courts, courts of appeals, and the U.S. Supreme Court. Fellows also play a key role in case development and in planning other CRC activities. Fellows participate in case rounds and assist in teaching seminars on litigation practice and substantive law.

    Past fellows have emphasized that the CRC experience is unique in several respects:

    First, the fellows work on interesting, often cutting-edge litigation. In light of our broad agenda, we have leeway to develop cases that present unique educational opportunities for students and fellows and have a significant impact on the law.

    Second, fellows assume substantial responsibility and generally play a more important role in the decision making process than do their contemporaries in other types of law practice. They work on a variety of cases in different stages of the litigation process and gain a broad understanding of how litigation works, from interviewing a potential client through appealing to the Supreme Court. Fellows also work closely with other CRC fellows and other public interest organizations, meeting other lawyers involved in public interest law and seeing how their organizations function.

    Third, fellows work closely with a full-time faculty member who has substantial litigation experience and expertise. As part of the Georgetown Law community, fellows are encouraged to attend seminars, workshops, and programs both on and off campus. Georgetown provides substantial support and guidance for fellows interested in pursuing academic scholarship or careers.

    Pay and other benefits

    The annual salary is $57,000 for the first year of the fellowship and $60,000 for the second year. The fellow also receives health and dental benefits and all tuition and fees in the L.L.M. program. Fellows also have unlimited free access to a state-of-the-art, on-site fitness center. As full-time students, fellows qualify for deferment of their student loans. Fellows may be eligible for loan repayment assistance from their law schools.

    How to apply

    Applicants should submit

    o a brief statement explaining the applicant’s interest in the position

    o a resume 

    o a law school transcript

    o a list of references, including contact information

    o a recent legal writing sample of any length representing the applicant’s most challenging legal work. Please do not send an excerpt. The writing sample should not be a collaborative work or significantly edited by someone else.

    The application materials should be sent in a single PDF file attached to an email to Maria Islam at mi368@georgetown.edu.

    Applications will be considered on a rolling basis, and the position will remain open until filled. We will select candidates to be interviewed. Although we will not pay candidates’ travel expenses, we will try to arrange interviews at a time convenient for the candidate.

    THE HEALTH JUSTICE ALLIANCE LAW CLINIC is accepting applications for a Two-Year Clinical Teaching Fellowship, from 2020 to 2022.

    Clinic Description

    The Health Justice Alliance Law Clinic is part of a medical-legal partnership between Georgetown Law Center and Georgetown University Medical Center. Launched in August 2017, the Law Clinic integrates law students directly into Georgetown community-based health clinics serving children and families living in poverty in Washington, D.C. Law students provide civil legal services to address barriers that affect patient health and well-being in collaboration with medical students, physicians, and other healthcare providers.

    Patients at these clinics face multi-generational, complex, civil legal needs, many of which negatively impact their health and well-being. Among the needs currently being served are those related to education, housing, family law, and public benefits, including access to health insurance. By partnering directly with healthcare providers, who help identify when patients have unmet legal needs, the Law Clinic is implementing an upstream legal services approach that fills an important access to justice gap in D.C. and works to treat legal issues before they escalate into more serious legal crises. By meeting patients’ medical and legal needs in places where they already have trusted relationships, the HJA Law Clinic offers a unique and especially effective method for reducing the barriers to justice that often confront people living in poverty.  Medical students rotate into the law clinic and collaborate with law students and clinical teaching fellows in providing holistic advocacy to client families. 

    Description of the Fellowship

    The Health Justice Alliance Law Clinic is hiring an individual to serve as a clinical teaching fellow and supervising attorney for two years. The two-year fellowship may start as early as May 2020. The fellowship is designed for a lawyer interested in developing teaching and supervisory abilities in a setting that emphasizes a dual commitment—clinical education of law students and poverty lawyering in the context of a medical-legal partnership and in the areas of civil legal aid identified above.  The fellow will supervise law students providing civil legal services to families living in poverty and serve as a mentor and role model to law students in the clinic, which has a track record of attracting students from historically underrepresented backgrounds.  The fellow will join the clinical teaching team, which consists of a senior teaching fellow and clinic director, in supervising law students, teaching law clinic seminar classes, and facilitating case rounds. The teaching team is highly collaborative and uses a team-based approach to pedagogy planning and problem solving. Successful completion of the fellowship results in the award of an L.L.M. in Advocacy from Georgetown University.

    Fellows have several areas of responsibility, with an increasing role in the clinic and student supervision as the fellowship progresses.  Over the course of the two years, the fellow will:

    • Directly represent clients who are referred by our health care partners;
    • Supervise students in casework and clinic projects;
    • Share responsibility for designing and teaching seminar sessions;
    • Assist with administrative and case handling responsibilities of the clinic;
    • Participate in a clinical pedagogy seminar and other activities for the L.L.M., which is designed to support an interest in clinical teaching and legal education;
    • Collaborate with law and medical students and faculty on research, policy, education, advocacy, and/or other projects designed to increase access to justice and health for underserved D.C. residents.

    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 may qualify for deferment of their student loans and/or may be eligible for loan repayment assistance from their law schools.

    Qualifications

    The Health Justice Alliance Law Clinic seeks a prospective fellow with:

    • Experience providing civil legal services to low-income clients (special education law, housing, and/or public benefits are areas of particular need);
    • Minimum of 3 years of post-J.D. legal experience;
    • Membership in the District of Columbia Bar (if not a member of the D.C. Bar must apply for admission by waiver upon accepting the fellowship offer);
    • Demonstrated commitment to social justice and an interest in clinical teaching; and
    • Prior medical, health-related, or mental health-related experience a plus.

    Application Instructions:

    Please submit a letter of interest, résumé/CV, complete law school transcript, a list of at least three references, and a writing sample (max. 10 pages) to HealthJusticeAlliance@georgetown.edu by Friday, February 7, 2020. Candidates will be considered on a rolling basis until the position is filled; therefore, we encourage you to apply as early as possible.  If you have any questions please contact Eugenia Alvarez, Office Manager for the Health Justice Alliance Law Clinic, at ea661@georgetown.edu.  

    Note: Georgetown Law Center is an Affirmative Action/Equal Opportunity employer and undertakes special efforts to employ a diverse workforce.

    GEORGETOWN UNIVERSITY LAW CENTER'S ENVIRONMENTAL LAW & JUSTICE PROJECT (IPR) seeks applications for a Visiting Associate Professor during the 2020-21 academic year.
