    THE UNIVERSITY OF CONNECTICUT SCHOOL OF LAW invites applicants for a visiting position to serve as the Teaching Fellow in the new Housing and Eviction Defense Clinic, an intensive law school clinical program focusing on housing cases and eviction defense, beginning in the fall of 2022.  This is a full-time, non-tenure track position, funded by an eighteen-month federal grant.  There is no assurance of continued employment beyond the end of the grant period.  This position will offer an attorney with an interest in clinical teaching and housing law the opportunity to teach, supervise students and work with experienced faculty members in a law school clinical program.  

    The School of Law is especially interested in candidates who will add to the diversity of our faculty and community.  We welcome applications from people of color, women, LGBTQI+ individuals, people with disabilities, and other individuals underrepresented in the legal academy, as well as candidates with experiences, backgrounds, and viewpoints that will enrich the diversity of our community. 

    The Housing and Eviction Defense Clinic will be one of 19 clinics and field placement programs operated by the Law School, including a robust in-house clinical program that comprises clinics focusing on asylum, criminal defense, tax, intellectual property and animal law, and clinics run in partnership with non-profits affiliated with the law school that focus on child advocacy, environmental law, elder law, veterans’ benefits and disability rights. UConn Law was an early leader nationally in clinical legal education, and its clinics and field placement programs continue to garner recognition statewide for training lawyers and providing outstanding service to members of the community.  

    Additional information about the clinics at UConn Law School can be found on the Law School’s website, at https://www.law.uconn.edu/academics/clinics-experiential-learning/clinics-field-placements.  A recently-published short book, “Born Fighting: Clinical Education at the University of Connecticut School of Law,” traces the clinic’s fifty-year history: https://today.uconn.edu/school-stories/new-book-describes-history-uconn-law-clinic/.

    This is an exciting opportunity in a new clinic that will have an immediate impact on tenants and establish a pipeline to train future eviction defense attorneys.  Position duties include conducting client intake interviews and making referrals, providing short advice to unrepresented tenants, planning and co-teaching clinic classes and supervising clinic students’ casework.  The fellow will work closely with the Clinic’s faculty director and will have opportunities to collaborate with faculty and students in the Law School. 

    Founded in 1881, UConn is a Land Grant and Sea Grant institution and member of the Space Grant Consortium. It is the state’s flagship institution of higher education and includes a main campus in Storrs, CT, four regional campuses throughout the state, and 13 Schools and Colleges, including a Law School in Hartford, and Medical and Dental Schools at the UConn Health campus in Farmington.
