    GEORGETOWN LAW seeks applications for a Visiting Associate Professor of Law to direct the Civil Litigation Clinic during the 2021-22 academic year.

    One of seventeen in-house clinics, the Civil Litigation Clinic is a semester-long program in which students work in teams on meaningful public interest cases – principally in federal district court. The Clinic does not have a specific subject area mandate and has historically worked with both individual and institutional clients. The Civil Litigation Clinic’s broad mandate allows it to select cases that serve as especially good learning vehicles with the aim of teaching students essential litigation skills, including interviewing clients, drafting complaints, conducting discovery, taking and defending depositions, and drafting motions. As the Clinic’s director, the visiting faculty member will be responsible for identifying the Clinic’s clients/cases, supervising all casework, and teaching the clinic’s weekly seminar. As part of the application materials, successful candidates will include their vision for the program and what clients/cases they would be well positioned to secure in order to create opportunities for students to develop foundational litigation skills and experience.

    Georgetown Law has operated its highly regarded in-house clinical program for more than 50 years. Through this program, students learn the practical art of lawyering while providing quality legal representation to under-represented individuals and organizations.

    Candidates should submit a cover letter, curriculum vitae, and references to Patrick Griffith, Assistant Dean for Clinical Programs, at patrick.griffith@georgetown.edu. Applications will accepted until COB on February 19, 2021. Georgetown Law has a strong commitment to diversity among its faculty and encourages applications from women, racial and ethnic minorities, individuals with disabilities, and veterans.

    BROOKLYN LAW SCHOOL invites applications for the Director of our immigration clinic (now known as the Safe Harbor Project). The Law School is looking for an outstanding teacher, lawyer, scholar, and leader who will join our faculty and our clinical program. We are seeking candidates who either currently meet or will soon meet our specialized tenure standard.

    The Safe Harbor Project began in 1997. During that time, BLS students have represented hundreds of clients in a wide range of types of immigration matters, although its primary docket consists of applications for asylum and other humanitarian relief. More than 350 students have participated in the clinic, many of whom now are leaders in the immigration lawyer’s community in New York or who continue to represent immigration clients pro bono.

    The Director will have full control over the direction, focus, design and priorities of the Clinic. The Director will be responsible for overseeing every aspect of the Clinic’s work including developing the docket, supervising clinic students and teaching the required seminar. The Director also will also teach at least one non-clinical course per year.

    The Director will join our accomplished group of clinical faculty members who teach in our eight in-house clinics and direct our externships. The Law School strongly supports, and is known for, its clinics, taking great pride in their accomplishments. This year marked the 50th anniversary of clinic programs at BLS.

    The Law School’s commitment to public interest and public service is longstanding and deep so that the Director also will have opportunities to mentor student pro bono organizations and to participate in local, state and national projects relating to immigration. The Law School supports and encourages the scholarship of all faculty through generous summer stipends, research assistance and pre-tenure leaves.

    Brooklyn Law School, founded in 1901, is located in one of the most diverse and vibrant communities in New York. In the heart of booming downtown Brooklyn, the Law School is within walking distance of all state and federal courts. BLS students are hardworking, enterprising, always questioning and eager to participate in the “real world.”

    Qualifications

    A candidate for this position must have a JD from an ABA-accredited institution, a strong academic record, a current license to practice law, at least five years’ experience in practice, with experience as a clinical teacher strongly preferred. The candidate should be admitted to or eligible for immediate admission to the New York State and/or federal bars.

    We seek a new colleague who is creative, curious and self-motivated with an ability to thrive in an academic environment and who has a demonstrated passion for social justice advocacy.

    Application Instructions

    We hope to find a new Director to take over the clinic no later than fall 2021 but the position will remain open until our search is successful.

    Please send a cover letter, resume and writing sample to Professor Julian Arato, julian.arato@brooklaw.edu with the subject line “Clinical Faculty Position.”

    Applications are welcome, and will be considered on a rolling basis. We will begin considering applications on February 8, 2021, and can only guarantee full consideration of materials received before that date.

    Salary, rank, and title will be commensurate with qualifications and experience.

    Brooklyn Law School is an equal opportunity institution that operates in compliance with applicable laws and regulations. BLS does not discriminate on the bases of race, color, national origin, religion, sex, pregnancy, age, sexual orientation, gender identity, disability, marital status, personal appearance, income, veteran status,, an individual’s genetic information or any other bases under federal or local laws in its programs and activities.
