    UCLA LAW's Williams Institute and Experiential Education Program seek applications for the Sears Clinical Law Teaching Fellowship for 2021-2024. Applicants who intend to pursue a career as a clinical professor and/or public interest lawyer engaged in legislative lawyering and policy work are invited to apply if their practice or research interests are focused on the intersections of sexual and reproductive health, LGBTQ rights, and racial and economic justice.

    We invite applications from those practicing or working in law, policy, and other disciplinary traditions. Applicants must have a clear legislative lawyering and/or policy focus, be interested in experiential teaching, and should have career or research interests that center questions of sexual and reproductive health, sexuality (broadly defined) and gender identity, and racial and economic justice. We are particularly interested in candidates who have an interest in researching religious liberty arguments to limit both reproductive rights and LGBTQ non-discrimination protections. We seek candidates who will bring our two programs together, infusing each with the ideas and work of the other.

    The fellowship offers opportunities for experiential teaching and research designed to prepare the fellow to seek a permanent or tenure-track experiential faculty position at a law school, or an advanced position as a public interest lawyer focused on public policy or legislative lawyering. The fellow will be expected to co-teach or teach in experiential courses at UCLA Law for at least one semester each year of the three-year fellowship. During the summer and semesters when the fellow is not teaching, the fellow would be fully engaged with policy and scholarly research projects. The law school will provide teaching mentorship, as well as research support and faculty guidance on research and writing projects.

    The law teaching fellowship programs of The Williams Institute and the Experiential Education Program at UCLA Law are some of the oldest in the nation. Together, they have supported over twenty law teaching fellows to secure tenure track appointments at law schools nationwide. Past fellows have secured faculty positions at top law schools including UCLA, UC Davis, UC Irvine, Wisconsin, and Yale.

    Eligibility and Qualifications

    UCLA School of Law seeks candidates committed to the highest standards of teaching, scholarship and professional activities, and to a campus climate, that supports equality and diversity.

In addition, we welcome candidates who possess graduate training in other disciplines, or other personal or professional background that informs their research and teaching interests. The fellowship is for three years, based upon satisfactory completion of each year of the fellowship. Those with previous postdoctoral scholar experience will be limited to no more than five total years of postdoctoral experience including time spent at UCLA.

    Terms of the Fellowship

    The Sears Clinical Law Teaching Fellow will be appointed for the academic year beginning July 1, 2021 and must be in residence in Los Angeles at UCLA. The fellowship is renewable for a second and third year, contingent on the fellow’s satisfactory progress. The fellowship offers a salary of approximately $70,000 per year and full benefits.

    • co-teaching or teaching at least one experiential course annually;
      engaging in substantial public policy or academic writing each year;

    YALE LAW SCHOOL seeks applications for a clinical fellowship in the Veterans Legal Services Clinic (VLSC) of the Jerome N. Frank Legal Services Organization, within Yale Law School’s clinical program. This is a two-year position, with a third-year option, beginning July 1, 2021, designed for lawyers with at least three years of practice who are considering a career in law school teaching.

    VLSC is a semester-long, in-house clinic whose students represent veterans and their organizations in disability compensation benefits, record correction, and civil rights litigation in administrative, state, and federal courts.  VLSC students also represent veterans’ organizations in regulatory and legislative advocacy, strategic planning, and public education campaigns. Illustrative examples include representation of:

    • Individual veterans seeking disability compensation benefits for injuries incurred during military service, in initial applications, administrative appeals, and judicial review in federal court. Recent cases include representation of veterans suffering PTSD from combat or sexual assault, traumatic brain injuries (TBI), and Agent Orange and radiation exposure-related disabilities.

    • Former service members in individual applications to upgrade a less-than-fully-honorable (“bad paper”) discharge before Department of Defense boards and on judicial review in federal court.  Recent cases include representation of veterans discharged for minor misconduct while suffering from undiagnosed PTSD or TBI; in retaliation for complaining about sexual harassment; and for “homosexual” conduct in the 1940s.

    • A New Haven veteran in a proposed nation-wide class action challenging extreme delays in VA adjudication of benefits applications and which resulted in a 2017 decision, Monk v. Wilkie, overturning nearly thirty years of precedent that had barred veterans from pursuing aggregate litigation via the U.S. Court of Appeals for Veterans Claims, the Article I court that is the exclusive channel for review of VA benefits claims.

    • A woman raped while a cadet at the U.S. Military Academy at West Point in federal civil rights litigation against the former leadership of West Point.

    • Two certified, nation-wide class actions of more than 100,000 Iraq and Afghanistan Era Army veterans who were discharged with bad paper despite having PTSD or PTSD-related conditions attributable to their military service.

    • A nation-wide class of U.S. Air Force veterans exposed to radiation after cleaning up two hydrogen bombs accidentally dropped on Spain in 1966, whose exposure the VA refuses to recognize, in the first appeals class action certified in the history of the U.S. Court of Appeals for Veterans Claims. Skaar v. Wilkie.

    • Incarcerated Connecticut veterans seeking release from prison during the COVID-19 outbreak, on state and federal habeas petitions.

    • Local and national veterans’ organizations in legislative and regulatory campaigns to address gender and race discrimination in congressional nominations to the military service academies; secure reparations for historic VA discrimination against Black veterans; recognize herbicide exposure of veterans who served on Guam in the Vietnam era; improve services for incarcerated veterans; curb retaliation against service-members who report sexual harassment or assault; better credit military training in occupational and professional licensing laws; make Connecticut veterans with bad paper eligible for state veterans’ benefits; and bar employment discrimination against veterans with bad paper.

    The Fellow’s responsibilities include the representation of VLSC clients, supervision of students, assistance in designing and teaching the weekly VLSC seminar, and work on one’s own scholarship.  In addition, the Fellow may be asked to co-teach a section of a seven-week fall program for first-year students, Introduction to Legal Analysis and Writing.  Candidates must be prepared to apply for admission to the Connecticut bar.  (Candidates may qualify for admission without examination.)  All work will be conducted with the support of the clinical faculty, and will focus on providing legal assistance to low-income and civil rights clients and organizations.  The principal supervisor for the position will be Professor Michael Wishnie.

    The Jerome N. Frank Legal Services Organization is committed to building a culturally diverse and pluralistic faculty and staff committed to teaching and working in a multicultural environment.  Candidates must be able to work both independently and as part of a team, and must possess strong written and oral communication skills.  Experience in creative and community-driven advocacy is a strong plus.  Annual salary is $65,000-70,000.  Fellows receive health benefits and access to university facilities.  Send (or email) a resume, cover letter, writing sample, law school transcript, and names, addresses and telephone numbers of three references by February 28, 2021 (early applications encouraged) to: Osikhena Awudu, Program Manager, The Jerome N. Frank Legal Services Organization, P.O. Box 209090, New Haven, CT 06520-9090; telephone: (203) 432-4800; fax: (203) 432-1426; osikhena.awudu@yale.edu.

    Yale University considers applicants for employment without regard to, and does not discriminate on the basis of, an individual’s sex, race, color, religion, age, disability, status as a veteran, or national or ethnic origin; nor does Yale discriminate on the basis of sexual orientation or gender identity or expression. Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 protects people from sex discrimination in educational programs and activities at institutions that receive federal financial assistance. Questions regarding Title IX may be referred to the University’s Title IX Coordinator, at TitleIX@yale.edu, or to the U.S. Department of Education, Office for Civil Rights, 8th Floor, Five Post Office Square, Boston MA 02109-3921.
