Boston College Law School - Immigration Clinic - Clinical Professor

12 Sep 2012 5:36 AM | Donna Lee

Boston College Law School seeks to hire two clinical professors.  One position is in Children/Juvenile Rights; the other is in Immigration Law.

Immigration Clinic:  We seek a clinical professor to teach in our longstanding, well-known Immigration and Asylum Clinic, and to be engaged with our many immigration law-related courses and programs.   As currently structured, the Immigration and Asylum Clinic provides students with the opportunity to apply their substantive learning about immigration law in a hands-on, real-world setting.  Students advise or represent clients in a wide range of immigration matters including deportation defense, “crim/imm” matters, asylum, waivers, adjustment of status, bond, appellate litigation, “know your rights” presentations, and amicus briefing.  With much training and close faculty supervision, students interview clients, draft applications, prepare lay and expert witnesses, analyze criminal records, develop case tactics and strategies, and try cases in court. We fully support this model but we are open to considering new ideas and models that are consonant with other course offerings, our institutional commitment to the highest-quality experiential learning, and to social justice.   The clinical professor might also teach related courses, such as an Advanced Immigration Law Seminar. Applicants must demonstrate a superior substantive knowledge of the field and experience with--and dedication to--clinical teaching.  3-5 years of experience in the field and admission to a bar that will permit the applicant to practice immigration law in Massachusetts are strongly preferred.


Boston College, a Jesuit, Catholic university, is an Affirmative Action and Equal Opportunity Employer and encourages all interested persons to apply. Contact: Prof. Daniel Kanstroom, Chair, Appointments Committee, Boston College Law School, 885 Centre Street, Newton, MA 02459 email: or
