ROGER WILLIAMS UNIVERSITY SCHOOL OF LAW in Bristol, Rhode Island, invites applications for a two year full-time position as a Visiting Assistant Professor of Law to direct and teach in our newly established Community Economic Development Clinic.  The position will commence in the summer of 2013, with clinic operations expected to commence in August of 2013.  The focus of the clinic will be the provision of services to small businesses and not-for-profit organizations in Rhode Island and Southern Massachusetts.  Students enrolled in the clinic will work with small business owners or operators in determining and facilitating their legal needs, including determining which legal entity choice is best, assisting with the filing of organizational documents and corporate necessities, creating agreements between owners, and creating basic leases and other contracts for the businesses.  The primary goal of the clinic will be to teach the practice of transactional lawyering while providing service to underserved entrepreneurs and organizations.  Consequently, a candidate should have or be willing to obtain a significant familiarity with the pedagogy of clinical education.

The candidate must hold a J.D. or LL.B degree and either be a member in good standing of the Rhode Island bar or be willing to take and pass the Rhode Island Bar Examination at the first possible administration.  The candidate must also have at least three years of transactional law experience.  Prior teaching experience is preferred but not required.

Although we will accept applications until the position is filled, we strongly encourage interested applicants to submit applications by no later than November 5, 2012.  Interested candidates should send a letter of interest and a resume, in electronic form, to Professor Bruce I. Kogan, Chair, Clinical Education Committee, at
