GEORGETOWN LAW invites applications for a tenure-track faculty position to direct the Health Justice Alliance Law Clinic, which is part of Georgetown’s top-ranked clinical program. The Health Justice Alliance Law Clinic is part of a medical-legal partnership between Georgetown Law and Georgetown University Medical Center, through which law students, fellows, and faculty collaborate with medical, nursing, and behavioral health students, faculty, and staff to improve the health and well-being of low-income children and families in Washington, D.C. Through partnerships with the MedStar Georgetown Community Pediatrics department, which runs school health centers and a mobile pediatric van, and the HOYA Clinic, which serves homeless families, law students enrolled in the Law Clinic represent low-income families in a variety of poverty law areas, including education, family law, housing, and public benefits. Students also engage in systemic projects, such as policy and inter-professional and community education projects related to the medical-legal partnership work.
The Faculty Appointments Committee is particularly interested in candidates with prior medical-legal partnership experience in the relevant practice areas and prior clinical teaching experience. Candidates must demonstrate a record of strong academic performance and excellent potential for scholarly achievement. Candidates should submit a cover letter, curriculum vitae, references and a scholarly agenda to Emily N. Smith at firstname.lastname@example.org.
