In addition to providing direct legal services, the attorneys will also engage in community outreach, interact with partner organizations, and participate in coalitions.

Salary is commensurate with experience. The positions are available immediately and are for an initial two-year appointment. The possibility of reappointment after two years depends on the availability of funding and project needs.

    Minimum Requirements: J.D. degree, relevant legal experience, and Massachusetts bar admission or admission to another state bar so that the applicant can practice under Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court Rule 3:04.

We provide essential civil legal services to low- and moderate-income residents of nearby neighborhoods, including the adjacent communities of Dorchester, Mattapan, and Roslindale. Our longstanding mission is to educate law students for practice and professional service while simultaneously meeting the critical legal needs of the community. Since 1979, we have engaged in cutting-edge litigation and legal strategies to improve the lives of individual clients, to seek systemic change for the communities we serve, and to provide law students with a singular opportunity to develop fundamental lawyering skills within a public interest law setting. To these ends, we actively partner with a diverse array of organizations, including healthcare and social service providers and advocacy groups, and continually adapt our practice areas to meet the changing legal needs of our client communities.

    Director, Frank J. Remington Center and Clinical Professor of Law


    Official title:



    Degree and area of specialization:

    JD degree required.



    A license to practice law in Wisconsin, or eligibility to obtain a Wisconsin bar license within six months of start date.


    Minimum number of years and type of relevant work experience:

    The position requires visionary leadership for the Remington Center's core missions of teaching, service, and scholarship to improve the criminal justice system.


    Applicants must have:
    *substantial leadership experience in the criminal justice system, demonstrating a balanced sense of criminal justice and the potential to work effectively with other leaders throughout the legal community in fostering a fair and effective system
    *substantial administrative experience in a University agency, a government agency, a law office, or another similar agency
    *commitment to high-quality legal representation for incarcerated persons
    *an understanding of and commitment to the core values of experiential education, and to the University of Wisconsin Law School's national reputation.


    Principal duties:

    The University of Wisconsin Law School's Frank J. Remington Center, one of the country's largest and longest standing experiential learning programs, is seeking a senior leader. The position offers the chance to join, and help lead, an outstanding community at a time of challenge and opportunity in legal education. With its longstanding commitment to experiential education, the Law School and the Remington Center are well positioned to respond to changes in the legal employment market, the increasing demand for practice-oriented education in light of the Carnegie Report, and the need for cutting-edge, socially relevant scholarship.

    The Remington Center embodies the Law School's law-in-action philosophy and the University's commitment to the "Wisconsin Idea," the notion that the University serves all the citizens of Wisconsin, the nation and the world. The Remington Center is dedicated to teaching, client service, and scholarly research aimed at improving the criminal justice system. It consists of seven in-house projects and three externship projects, all of which involve partnerships with various criminal justice agencies outside the Law School. The in-house projects are: Legal Assistance to Institutionalized Persons (LAIP), the Oxford Federal Project, the Family Law Project, the Restorative Justice Project, the Wisconsin Innocence Project, the Re-Entry Project, and the Criminal Appeals Project. The externship projects are the Prosecution Project, the Hayes Police-Prosecution Project, and the Public Defender Project.

    The Law School recently completed a self-study of the experiential learning programs, and is continuing to re-assess the leadership structure of its different programs. In addition, the Dean of the Law School appointed a new Associate Dean of Academic Affairs and Experiential Learning (a post previously known as only Associate Dean of Academic Affairs). The person hired for the job opening advertised here will act as Director of the Remington Center initially, and will then help lead the effort to re-assess how the Remington Center's directorship should be structured, its relationship to the Law School's other criminal and civil experiential learning programs, and the optimal division of labor between the Remington Center's Director and the Associate Dean (and other administrative actors).

    The position's primary job responsibility will be to evaluate and oversee the Remington Center's programs. Remington Center clinical faculty, including the Director, have 12-month appointments. The Remington Center's in-house programs engage students full-time in the summer. The Director will be expected to maintain and develop the program's financial resources; in collaboration with the Dean's Office, set and monitor the program's budget; manage the program's contracts with, among others, the Wisconsin Department of Corrections, the Federal Bureau of Prisons, the Wisconsin State Public Defender's Office, and Wisconsin prosecutor's agencies; recruit, hire and supervise Center faculty and staff; coordinate student recruitment and selection process; teach and supervise law students in one or more of the Remington Center's projects; address student problems that arise; lead regular Remington Center faculty meetings; serve on law school committees; teach other, non-Remington Center, law school classes (time permitting at the discretion of the Faculty Director and the Law School Dean's Office); consider, devise and pursue opportunities for developing possible new projects; lead efforts for policy reform and criminal justice scholarship; foster scholarly research by faculty and students to improve the criminal justice system; and actively participate in addressing the challenges facing graduates of the law school.


    A criminal background check will be conducted prior to hiring.


    A period of evaluation will be required

    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.
