Georgia State University’s College of Law seeks applicants for a full-time Clinical Professor responsible for teaching and the day-to-day operations of Georgia State University College of Law’s new Investor Advocacy Clinic, an in-house clinic. This is a non-tenure track clinical faculty position with faculty status, a renewable contract, and job security commensurate with tenure-track faculty. Clinical faculty have voting rights and serve on faculty committees at the College of Law. Appointment could begin as early as January 2013.
The Clinical Professor will play a significant role in the development of the new clinic. In addition, the Clinical Professor will supervise students in all aspects of client representation; have primary responsibility for case selection and client communication; develop and teach related coursework; coordinate with other Georgia State University units in the participation of non-law graduate students in the clinic; and have primary responsibility for the day-to-day administration of the clinic.
The Investor Advocacy Clinic will serve small investors through education and individual representation. Specifically, the clinic will provide legal assistance and advice to investors who have suffered losses resulting from broker misconduct (claims including, but not limited to, misrepresentation, unsuitability, unauthorized trading, excessive trading (“churning”), and failure to supervise) but cannot afford or find private legal representation because of the size of their claim.
Qualifications for this position include:
· A J.D. degree from an ABA-accredited law school and a strong academic record.
· Excellent experience in legal practice and lawyering skills (preferably in securities arbitration and/or securities litigation).
· A proven record of (or clear demonstrated potential for) successful teaching and professional engagement.
· Membership in or ability to become a member of the State Bar of Georgia.
Application: Please submit letters of interest and CVs to Professor Kendall Kerew at firstname.lastname@example.org.
