    THE UNIVERSITY BALTIMORE SCHOOL OF LAW invites applications for a Clinical Teaching Fellowship in its Innocence Project Clinic to start on or about July 1, 2024. This full-Clinical time, year-round, 3-year public interest fellowship program offers superb mentorship and training as the Fellow transitions from law practice to law faculty, providing intensive support in the areas of clinical pedagogy, academic writing, and more. The IPC Fellow will join a cohort of approximately nine Fellows, each of whom teaches in a different clinic; many former Fellows have moved into long-term teaching positions at other institutions after completing their Fellowship. Because we value the diversity of our faculty and student body, we welcome all qualified candidates, including members of communities that are traditionally under-represented in the legal profession and academia.

    Electronic applications are required. Before starting or submitting an application, please save all required documents as a single PDF (preferred format) or Word document.

    To apply, visit http://www.ubalt.edu/candidate_gateway/erecruit.html.

    This posting is specifically for the Innocence Project Clinic Fellowship, although Fellowships in other areas of practice may also be available; each position has its own application portal.

    Students in the Innocence Project Clinic review records, interview clients and witnesses, conduct legal research, devise investigative strategies, draft pleadings and argue motions in cases involving claims of wrongful conviction. Students develop an understanding of the post-conviction process and the various scientific issues that have emerged that impact on the reliability of eyewitness identification, forensic evidence, and police interrogation methods.

    The fellowship focuses its first year on the skills of teaching, from crafting and leading seminars to facilitating supervision meetings with student-attorneys. The second year of the fellowship focuses on developing legal scholarship. In the third year, we support the Fellow to go on the clinical teaching job market. In addition to teaching, supervision, and legal scholarship, during winter and summer breaks in the academic calendar, when students are not enrolled, the Fellow also covers client matters, including matters for other clinics that are within the Fellow’s expertise.

    Required Qualifications: Excellent oral and written communication skills; a strong academic record and/or other indicia of high-performance ability; commitment to work for low income and immigrant clients; and a strong interest in teaching. Three years of experience as a practicing lawyer is required, along with one year of practicing criminal law, with experience relating to wrongful convictions preferred. This position is a three-year contractual appointment.

    Be a member of the Maryland Bar or be licensed in another state and willing to become administratively certified as a clinic supervising attorney under the Maryland Rules.

    Salary: The current salary is $70,000. The position includes full benefits, including retirement (while subject to change, in past years this has included a generous match) and tuition remission. Benefits are listed here (see under “Faculty and Regular Employees”): https://www.ubalt.edu/about-ub/offices-and-services/human-resources/benefits/index.cfm. In addition, this position includes research support (for example, research assistant support and/or book allowance) and a travel allowance to attend relevant conferences and workshops. Candidates interested in the Public Service Loan Forgiveness Program are encouraged to investigate whether employment at The University of Baltimore, a state educational institution, may qualify.

    Position is open until filled, and applications submitted by March 22, 2024 will receive priority consideration. For more details about the Fellows’ Program, please view our website at http://law.ubalt.edu/clinics/fellows/
