Duke University School of Law seeks to appoint a Visiting Clinical Professor, Clinical Professor, Professor of the Practice or Senior Lecturing Fellow to direct the Law School’s Start-Up Ventures Clinic and to actively engage in the Law School’s broader program in Law and Entrepreneurship. We will consider candidates who seek a full- time position at the Law School or candidates who seek a part-time adjunct appointment because of their continuing involvement in activities, such as law practice, that are relevant to entrepreneurship; provided, that, any candidate seeking an adjunct appointment should be prepared to address how they plan to meet the demands of clinical teaching and supervision on a part-time basis.
In addition to directing the Clinic, the faculty member will be expected to work closely with the Director of the Law School’s LLM Program in Law and Entrepreneurship to continue the development of that program. The faculty member will have the opportunity to pursue other interests, such as non-clinical teaching and/or research. Individuals currently teaching in a business law clinic, as well as practicing attorneys with relevant subject matter expertise are encouraged to apply.
The appointment offers a unique opportunity to develop the Law School’s emerging Start-Up Ventures Clinic, to expand relevant non-clinical curricular offerings, and to help build the Law School’s broader program in Law and Entrepreneurship; all within the context of a university that has adopted the promotion of entrepreneurship at its professional schools as a strategic priority. The precise contours of the position will be tailored to the strengths and interests of the successful applicant and formalized with their input. In addition to a strong record of, or demonstrated potential for, clinical teaching and practical engagement at the intersection of law and entrepreneurship, the ideal candidate will have experience in program management and administration. All applicants must also either be members of the North Carolina Bar or be eligible for admission and willing to become a member.
Duke University is an equal opportunity/affirmative action employer. Persons of color and women are strongly encouraged to apply.
