GEORGE WASHINGTON UNIVERSITY’S Jacob Burns Community Legal Clinics are seeking fellows for three clinics for academic years 2021-2023. We seek applicants for positions in our International Human Rights Clinic, Family Justice Litigation Clinic, and the Public Justice Advocacy Clinic. We seek applications from candidates with strong academic, clinical, and lawyering experience. Applicants who have an interest in receiving training in clinical and/or law school teaching will be preferred.
The Friedman Fellowship program affords every fellow the opportunity to learn about 1) clinical education and public interest lawyering; and 2) teaching and supervising law students engaged in these activities. Throughout their two years in residence, fellows receive specific instruction and guidance in teaching and supervising law students and in writing scholarship for publication. The program provides fellows with mentorship and support from the clinical faculty and administration.
Fellows receive an annual stipend and are eligible for University employment benefits, such as health insurance, tuition assistance, and other benefits related to law school affiliation. Fellows must be members of a state bar. Candidates who are not members of the D.C. Bar must be eligible for immediate waiver into the D.C. Bar.
By October 30, 2020, applicants should send a letter of interest, a resume, a list of references, and a complete law school transcript to email@example.com. Questions can also be submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org. The George Washington University Law School is an Affirmative Action/Equal Opportunity employer. The University undertakes special efforts to employ a diverse workforce.
