The University of California, Irvine School of Law, Clinical Faculty Position

08 Aug 2011 5:25 PM | Laura McNally-Levine
The University of California, Irvine School of Law, invites applications for a full-time clinical faculty position beginning in July 2012.   During its initial planning year, the Law School’s founding faculty adopted as a graduation requirement that each student participate in at least one semester of clinical education in which she assists real clients in solving actual legal problems.   To this end, the Law School has allocated 10 of its 50 faculty positions for the hiring of clinical faculty to develop six to ten clinics.  We intend to create both transactional and litigation clinics, to provide students with a broad range of options tailored to differing career interests.  The Law School admitted its founding class of students in August 2009.

The person selected will develop one of UCI’s inaugural clinics, and will assist in the planning and development of the overall clinical program.   The Law School is most interested in applicants desiring to develop a clinic in the area of  international human rights. However, we invite outstanding applicants with expertise in other clinical subject areas to apply for consideration.   At least five years of practice experience and two years of clinical teaching experience are strongly preferred.  This position is available as an academic tenure, clinical tenure, or tenure-track (academic or clinical) position, depending on the candidate’s experience and interests.

The University of California, Irvine School of Law is an equal opportunity employer committed to excellence through diversity and strongly encourages applications from all qualified applicants, including women and minorities. UCI is responsive to the needs of dual-career couples, is dedicated to work-life balance through an array of family-friendly policies, and is the recipient of an NSF Advance Award for gender equity.

Review of applications will begin immediately and continue until the positions are filled.  To ensure full consideration, applications and supporting material should be received by September 2, 2011 .  Please note adjunct positions will be posted and filled separately. Interested candidates should submit a cover letter identifying the subject area or areas of interest, and current Curriculum Vitae to:
