THE MORITZ COLLEGE OF LAW AT THE OHIO STATE UNIVERSITY is hiring a Visiting Assistant Clinical Professor to launch a new Immigration Clinic in January 2021. OSU is located in Columbus, Ohio, a thriving and growing city, named as “One of the 52 Places to Go in 2019,” by the New York Times.
This opportunity will offer the VAP the chance to build a clinic from the ground up, with the support of Moritz’s other clinical programs faculty. The Visiting Assistant Clinical Professor will have responsibility to develop the immigration clinic, including conducting an assessment of immigration law needs in central Ohio, building ties to community partners, and creating opportunities for the law students to contribute to these activities and earn course credit through participation in the immigration clinic. The Visiting Assistant Clinical Professor will teach up to 8 students per semester in a 4-credit course offering, with responsibility for course design, classroom instruction, and student conferences. The Visiting Assistant Clinical Professor will have autonomy over both clinical pedagogy and selection and handling of all cases; serve as counsel of record in all cases; and be the primary supervisor of the clinic students.
This is a one-year position, with hopes that the College will secure additional funding to continue the Clinic in the future. The position will begin late this calendar year in preparation to teach next January. The post is here: https://www.jobsatosu.com/postings/102958.
