The mission of CharlotteLaw is to provide a legal education that is student-centered, facilitates practice readiness in a way that stimulates intellectual excellence and fosters personal integrity, and serves underserved communities. It opened in August 2006 as the first law school in North Carolina’s most populous city and recently received full ABA accreditation.
The Director of Clinics will join a growing faculty dedicated to experiential learning integrated throughout the curriculum and an academic team that includes a Director of Experiential Learning, Director of Lawyering Process and Assistant Professor of Pro Bono. CharlotteLaw has a Pro Bono Graduation Requirement, an Externship Program, Clinics, Practicums and Clinical Labs.
The Director’s administrative responsibilities will constitute 50% of the Director’s workload. Administrative responsibilities include training, supervising and mentoring faculty teaching clinical courses and establishing law office systems and procedures to insure quality, ethical representation of clients. The Director will also be expected to teach a clinical course and be a full participant of the faculty. He or she will work with the Director of Experiential Learning to leverage community resources to provide as many students possible hands-on learning experiences and to best serve the underrepresented.
CharlotteLaw is a member of The InfiLaw System, a consortium of independent law schools committed to making legal education more responsive to the realities of new career dynamics. We are a law school that values motivation through inspiration over “command and control”; emotional intelligence (“EQ”) as much as IQ; continuous improvement, measured outcomes, and team goals, as opposed to individual agendas; and interdependence, the power of partner law schools, and the creation of best practices. We are striving to create a culture of collegiality, integrity, dedication to teamwork, and a continuing commitment to improving self-awareness. Faculty develop their EQ through regularly scheduled workshops that help a person become self-aware.
We are looking for a candidate who is the best fit for the Director of Clinics position and, thus, the position may be filled by a candidate who is interested in either a tenure track or a non-tenure-track faculty appointment, subject to long-term contract renewal, with a ten or twelve month contract. All full-time faculty have full faculty voting rights, except in the area of promotion and tenure. Opportunity for research and scholarship development is available.
Salary is commensurate with education, qualifications, and experience. Review of application material will begin immediately and continue until the position is filled. For more information about Charlotte School of Law, please visit www.charlottelaw.edu.
