Temple University Beasley School of Law invites applications for the position of Director of External Clinical Programs.
The Director is a non-tenure-track full-time member of the Law School Faculty, is eligible for renewable long-term contracts, and teaches the Ethics in Practice clinical course. The Director is responsible for oversight of more than 20 external clinical courses, taught by adjunct members of the Law School Faculty, and serves as liaison between the adjunct clinical faculty and the Law School. In this capacity, the Director is responsible for creating and implementing training for adjunct clinical faculty and serves as a resource to adjunct clinical faculty on academic and administrative issues. The position requires the Director to visit the external clinical programs at their sites. In addition, the Director engages in outreach with the Philadelphia area bar and is responsible for the development of new external clinical programs and other experiential learning opportunities and their submission to the Associate Dean for Academic Affairs. The Director supervises registration in clinical courses and has extensive contact with students, providing counseling on clinical choices and their impact on career goals, managing issues that may arise in clinical programs, and reviewing and responding to student reflective journals, which requires knowledge of clinical teaching methods and ethical standards. The Director must be able to work collaboratively with multiple members of the institution.
