DUQUESNE UNIVERSITY SCHOOL OF LAW invites applications for the position of Assistant Professor of Clinical Legal Education for the 2019 – 2020 academic year. The successful candidate will be appointed to a 12-month, renewable, 405(c), non-tenure-track, assistant clinical professor position. It is anticipated that the successful candidate will create, direct, teach, and serve as the supervising attorney with respect to two law school clinics, one in the day and one in the evening; however, this is subject to negotiation if other administrative tasks are assumed. The clinic(s) must be eligible for IOLTA funding, i.e., must concern civil, rather than criminal, law (see https://www.paiolta.org/grants/eligibility-applications/), and at least one clinic must be transactional.
Minimum requirements include a J.D. degree and admission to the practice of law in Pennsylvania. The selected candidate must have superior academic credentials, excellent written, verbal, and interpersonal skills, strong organizational skills, and the ability to work with a wide range of constituents. Previous teaching experience is required with previous clinical teaching and scholarship related to clinical teaching desired. The position will begin in August 2019.
