The University of Colorado Law School seeks applicants for a clinical faculty position in its Samuelson-Glushko Technology Law & Policy Clinic (http://www.colorado.edu/law/clinics/tech/). The Clinic is one a handful of its kind in the country that focuses upon the intersection of technology policy and administrative advocacy. Buoyed by the Silicon Flatirons Center, Colorado Law is a national leader in the area of policy matters involving telecommunications, privacy, and innovation. The incoming clinical faculty member will be charged with assessing and creating a docket of cases and projects that will allow students to explore federal, state and local policy advocacy on technology issues in the public interest. The faculty member will have primary responsibility for supervising students in their case or project work, and for organizing and teaching a companion clinical seminar. The faculty member also will have an opportunity to work with students as part of Colorado Law’s broader programming through the Silicon Flatirons Center (http://www.silicon-flatirons.org/index.php).
Candidates must have a JD degree, a strong background in technology policy, and a minimum of five years practical experience greatly preferred. Prior teaching experience is strongly preferred. Candidates must be licensed to practice law in at least one state and be eligible either to sit for the Colorado bar or to apply for an admission waiver.
To apply, candidates should mail a letter describing their interest, their initial thoughts on the kinds of cases or projects they would develop for the Technology Law & Policy Clinic, including discussing why the range of work selected well prepares students to work in a regulatory environment. The letter should also address a candidate’s relevant practice experience and any prior teaching experience, and include a resume and the names of three references to Deborah J. Cantrell, Associate Professor & Director of Clinical Programs, University of Colorado Law School, Wolf Law Building, 404 UCB, Boulder, CO 80309-0404.
