Clinical Position (Immigration). The University of Pittsburgh School of Law also invites applications for the position of Clinical Assistant Professor of Law/Director of the Law School’s Immigration Law Clinic. This full-time position is not in the tenure stream, and is part of a system of contracts progressing to renewable long-term contracts. The position will begin on July 1, 2013. The Clinic’s primary mission is to serve the educational needs of our students and to provide legal services to individuals involved in asylum cases or in removal proceedings before the Immigration Court. Duties of the Director and Clinical Professor include classroom teaching, supervision of second- and third-year law students as they represent clients and participate in community projects; community outreach and fundraising; and administrative duties relating to the Immigration Law Clinic. The Director may also be expected to assume responsibilities involving the oversight of immigration-related legal services provided by pro bono attorneys and by the legal staff of Jewish Children and Family Services of Pittsburgh. These responsibilities, which will not exceed eight hours per week, may be separately contracted for and compensated by Vibrant Pittsburgh or other funders. Qualifications include admission to practice in Pennsylvania or willingness to seek admission to the Pennsylvania bar; experience in the field of immigration law (specifically, asylum and removal cases), and, preferably, clinical pedagogy; and the ability to work effectively with students, clients and other constituents.
