Citizenship and Immigration Clinic
Washington and Lee University School of Law invites applications for a clinical faculty position to direct its new Citizenship and Immigration Clinic. This is a tenure-track position. The clinic offers students the opportunity to engage in meaningful client work, providing direct representation to immigrants in south and central Virginia who cannot afford the services of private attorneys, with a particular emphasis on vulnerable populations. The clinic works with unaccompanied minors, victims of domestic violence, and refugees to obtain immigration benefits that allow them to fully pursue their lives in the United States. The clinic handles U visas, VAWA self-petitions, Special Immigrant Juvenile cases, deportation defense, asylum claims, applications for permanent residence, BIA appeals, and other immigration cases.
Applicants should have significant experience in immigration work. In addition, they should have outstanding legal writing skills, high ethical standards, sound judgment, and the ability to motivate and train law students. Other highly desirable attributes will be prior law school teaching experience and a track record of publication. The clinic director is expected to become a member of the Virginia bar. Interested candidates should contact Professor Brian Murchison at firstname.lastname@example.org.
