    GEORGETOWN UNIVERSITY LAW CENTER'S Domestic Violence Clinic hires one person to serve as a clinical teaching fellow and supervising attorney each year, for a two-year term. Fellows have several areas of responsibility, including: representing survivors of family abuse in CPO cases; designing and teaching Clinic seminar classes; and supervising third-year law students in their representation of clients. Throughout the program, fellows receive extensive supervision and training on their litigation skills, providing them with a substantial opportunity to improve as litigators. The fellowship experience is also designed to develop fellows’ skills as clinical law professors and launch them on a career in clinical law teaching; all of our fellows who have sought teaching jobs over the past decade or more have successfully obtained a teaching position.

    Clinic fellows also pursue a program of graduate study, through a seminar course on clinical pedagogy, taught collectively by the Georgetown clinical faculty. (Fellows also may audit regular law school courses). In addition, during the first year of the program, fellows are members of the Women’s Law and Public Policy Fellowship Program, where they have an opportunity to collaborate with lawyers doing a variety of women’s rights legal work in Washington, D.C., and to meet with justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Congresswoman Eleanor Holmes Norton, and other long-time leaders in the feminist legal community. 

    Preference will be given to applicants who have a background or demonstrated interest in family law, domestic violence, or poverty law and who have some trial practice experience. Applicants must have excellent oral and written advocacy skills, and must be admitted to a Bar at the time of submitting their application. Any fellow who is offered the position and is not a member of the D.C. Bar must apply for admission by waiver immediately following acceptance.

    Description of the Clinic

    Students in the Domestic Violence Clinic represent victims of all forms of domestic abuse in civil protection order (“CPO”) cases in D.C. Superior Court. The Clinic provides students with an intensive, challenging education in the art of trial advocacy, extensive hands-on experience with family law and poverty lawyering, and the opportunity to alleviate a crucial community need for legal representation. Through course work and client representation, students are exposed to every phase of expedited civil litigation. Students also learn to navigate the criminal justice system by working, in cases where it is consistent with their client’s wishes, with the U.S. Attorney’s Office in prosecutions against those accused of abusing Clinic clients.

    Students litigate to obtain CPOs that last for up to one year and can include a broad spectrum of relief designed to effectively end the violence in a family or dating relationship. For example, a judge may direct a person causing harm to cease assaulting and threatening the victim; to stay away from the victim’s home, person and workplace; and not to contact the victim in any manner. The judge may award temporary custody of the parties’ minor children, with visitation rights for the non-custodial parent, and award child and/or spousal support. Finally, each semester students develop a group project focused on improving law, policy, or community education, that is designed to expose them to alternatives beyond direct client litigation for pursuing social justice for their client base.

    In the Clinic seminar, faculty and fellows provide intensive instruction to Clinic students on a wide variety of topics, including the civil, family, criminal, evidentiary and ethical laws and rules applicable to domestic violence litigation, the psychological dynamics of intimate partner violence, trauma-informed lawyering, storytelling, and the importance of empathy. In class, students participate in exercises designed to develop and refine essential litigation skills such as conducting direct and cross examinations, delivering opening statements and closing arguments, introducing exhibits into evidence, and conducting negotiations.

    Application Process

    Please complete the application, available at:

    https://www.law.georgetown.edu/wlppfp/wlppfp-us-fellowships/application/

    and submit it to BOTH the Domestic Violence Clinic (dvclinic@law.georgetown.edu), and to the Women’s Law and Public Policy Fellowship Program (wlppfp@law.georgetown.edu).

    Please be sure to indicate your interest in the Domestic Violence Clinic on your application.

    Applications must be submitted by Friday, November 6, 2020. Selected applicants will be contacted to schedule interviews in December, and selection will occur shortly thereafter. The fellowship begins in early July 2021, and, following a two-year term, terminates in June 2023.

    GEORGETOWN LAW seeks applications for a tenure-track lateral or entry-level faculty to direct the Federal Legislation Clinic starting during the 2021-22 academic year.

    One of seventeen in-house clinics, the Federal Legislation Clinic trains students in the art of “legislative lawyering” though their representation of non-profit organizations seeking to advance their policy agendas through Congress and administrative agencies. Our founding director, Chai Feldblum, wrote the pioneering scholarly piece in the field: The Art of Legislative Lawyering and the Six Circles Theory of Advocacy.

    The Clinic does not have a specific subject matter mandate. Instead, the Clinic has worked with institutional clients selected by the Clinic's director and covering a wide array of issues, including immigrants’ rights, privacy and technology, criminal justice reform, and workplace fairness. Under the supervision of the Clinic’s director and two clinical teaching fellows, students have drafted op-eds, talking points, and strategy documents for legislative campaigns; prepared analyses of legislative and regulatory proposals, Congressional testimony, comments for regulatory agencies, and model legislation; accompanied clients to meetings in Congress and before regulatory agencies; and helped clients prepare for testimony before Congressional committees.  Given the Clinic’s track record, the new faculty director will have a great deal of discretion to focus on any number of substantive subject matters.

    Georgetown Law has operated its top-ranked clinical program for more than 50 years. Through this program, students learn the practical art of lawyering while providing quality legal representation to under-represented individuals and organizations.

    Candidates should submit a cover letter, curriculum vitae, references, and a scholarly agenda to Professor Aderson François, c/o Maria Islam, Office Manager for the Civil Rights Clinic, at mi368@georgetown.edu. Georgetown Law has a strong commitment to diversity among its faculty and encourages applications from women, racial and ethnic minorities, individuals with disabilities, and veterans.

    GEORGETOWN LAW seeks applications for a tenure-track lateral or entry-level faculty to direct the Environmental Law & Justice Clinic (IPR) starting during the 2021-22 academic year.

    The Environmental Law & Justice Clinic at the Institute for Public Representation (IPR) is a public interest law firm and clinical education program founded at Georgetown Law in 1971. Currently, the Clinic focuses in the areas of environmental law and environmental justice, covering a wide range of issues, including air and water pollution, hazardous waste disposal, renewable energy, wildlife protection, resource extraction, food law, and Indian tribal matters. Recent examples include filing an amicus brief on behalf of 24 environmental law professors in the Fifth Circuit arguing that the Endangered Species Act’s protections for endangered intrastate species are valid under the Commerce Clause and litigating a Clean Water Act enforcement suit to compel a coal-fired power plant to comply with pollution limits in its NPDES permit.

    The Clinic gives students the opportunity to engage in complex, cutting-edge litigation before appellate courts and administrative agencies in matters that have a significant impact on issues of broad public importance. The clinic is a significant time commitment for students (32 hrs./week) for which they receive 12 credits and participate in a weekly seminar taught by the director and fellows.  In keeping with the Clinic’s track record of covering a wide range of issues and engaging in litigation, administrative rulemaking, and legislative advocacy, the new faculty director will have the opportunity to shape both the nature of clinical work students undertake as well as the substantive contents of the seminars.  In short, we seek an intellectually diverse range of candidates who will articulate and implement a creative vision of the future of environmental law and environmental justice. 

    Georgetown Law has operated its top-ranked clinical program for more than 50 years. Through this program, students learn the practical art of lawyering while providing quality legal representation to under-represented individuals and organizations.

    Candidates should submit a cover letter, curriculum vitae, references, and a scholarly agenda to Professor Aderson François c/o Maria Islam, Office Manager for the Civil Rights Clinic, at mi368@georgetown.edu. Georgetown Law has a strong commitment to diversity among its faculty and encourages applications from women, racial and ethnic minorities, individuals with disabilities, and veterans.

The Visiting Assistant Clinical Professor will have responsibility to develop the immigration clinic, including conducting an assessment of immigration law needs in central Ohio, building ties to community partners, and creating opportunities for the law students to contribute to these activities and earn course credit through participation in the immigration clinic. The Visiting Assistant Clinical Professor will teach up to 8 students per semester in a 4-credit course offering, with responsibility for course design, classroom instruction, and student conferences.
