TULANE LAW SCHOOL is seeking two full-time Clinic Instructors for its Women’s Prison Project (WPP). WPP is a collaboration between two of the law school’s nationally recognized clinics, the Domestic Violence Clinic and the Criminal Justice Clinic. The Project represents Louisiana women who are unjustly incarcerated for killing an abusive partner or for participating in crimes under the duress of an abusive partner. It focuses on domestic violence and trauma as a pathway to prison for women, reaching a marginalized population mostly ignored by the mainstream criminal justice reform movement. The Project’s work also focuses on developing a statewide plan for the comprehensive decarceration of domestic violence survivors, and challenging laws that continue to result in the unjust convictions of abuse survivors in Louisiana.
