    THE UNIVERSITY OF MICHIGAN LAW Clinical Fellows Program seeks applicants for a fellowship in its Michigan Innocence Clinic (MIC). This is a two-year appointment with the possibility of extension for a third year.

    The Clinical Fellows Program is designed to fully support attorneys wishing to explore the possibility of a career in clinical teaching. Michigan Clinical Fellows gain valuable experience and mentoring in clinical pedagogy and in their substantive area of practice. Their duties include clinical teaching and student supervision in conjunction with clinic directors, and participation in the operation and development of the clinic in which they teach. Support is provided for personal and professional development and scholarship. Michigan Clinical Fellows have enjoyed success on the national job market and are teaching in clinics at law schools across the country.

    The Michigan Innocence Clinic works to exonerate defendants who have been wrongfully convicted in state or federal court in Michigan. The Clinic primarily works on cases where there is no DNA to test, and so the work of the Clinic largely involves finding new witnesses, searching for suppressed evidence, and challenging discredited or outdated forensic science. The Clinic opened in 2009 and has achieved victories securing freedom for 41 wrongfully convicted people.

    Michigan’s Clinical Fellows salaries and benefits are very competitive. The fellowship begins in the late summer of 2024.
