    Working title:

    Clinical Professor or Clinical Associate Professor

    Official title:


    Degree and area of specialization:

    J.D., criminal law, postconviction litigation, incarcerated persons, clinical legal education.


    The position will require admission to practice law in the Wisconsin Bar and in federal court either at the time of application or by the Fall of 2013.

    Minimum number of years and type of relevant work experience:

    This is a senior position. As such, a minimum of 5 years' experience as an attorney practicing criminal law and/or postconviction litigation is required. Prior clinical or other law teaching experience is preferred. As part of the hiring process, the applicant will be required to make a presentation to the Law Faculty.

    Principal duties:

    The appointment is for a clinical faculty member in the Frank J. Remington Center's Wisconsin Innocence Project (WIP). WIP is one of the first, and among the largest and most successful innocence projects in the nation. WIP was founded in 1998 and was one of the founding projects of the Innocence Network, which has now grown into an affiliation of 65 innocence projects in seven nations. The project is one of eleven clinical projects offered through the Law School's Remington Center, which has been providing clinical legal educational opportunities since the 1960s.

    In WIP, law students, under clinical faculty supervision, provide legal assistance to prison inmates, primarily in Wisconsin, in cases in which the inmates have viable claims that they are actually innocent and wrongly convicted. Students in WIP receive an unusually deep immersion  experience in the criminal justice system, as they work in the project for a full calendar year full-time starting in the summer, continuing half-time in the fall semester, and then continuing for another three credits in the spring. This level of commitment provides not only a uniquely rich learning opportunity, but also a rare opportunity for effective client service and case work in the large cases that comprise the project's caseload.

    Along with several other clinical faculty working in the Wisconsin Innocence Project, the applicant will supervise the work of the clinical students and provide classroom instruction in conjunction with the clinic. The applicant may also have an opportunity to provide classroom instruction in non-clinic related law school courses. Interest in scholarly research and writing on issues arising out of the work of the clinics is welcomed.

    This is a senior appointment for someone with a commitment and demonstrated ability to engage in teaching, mentoring of junior colleagues, litigation, policy reform and scholarly inquiry into the criminal justice system and in particular wrongful convictions.

    The position is a nine-month appointment as a Clinical Professor.  Responsibilities include teaching a classroom component to the Clinic designed to orient students to the problem of elder financial abuse and to develop the necessary skills to detect, manage, and prosecute cases; closely supervising student casework and other matters related to the Clinic’s representation of clients; developing relationships with other entities – including governmental agencies, advocacy groups, financial services organizations, and other campus units – that may be in a position to advance the Clinic’s mission; and undertaking administrative responsibilities relating to management of the Clinic.
    The successful candidate must be licensed to practice law (or in a position to secure licensure) in the state of Illinois; experienced in the area of civil or criminal litigation – ideally, with prior exposure to the field of fraud; and able to work effectively with students, clients, the bench and bar, other faculty members, and the broader community.  Previous experience with clinical education is preferred, but not required.  Salary is dependent upon experience.
    To apply for the position, please create your candidate profile at and upload a letter of interest; resume; and the names, addresses and telephone numbers of three references by December 5, 2012 via the University of Illinois’ online system. All requested information must be submitted for your application to be considered. Proposed start date would be the first day possible after hire.
