    THE GEORGETOWN UNIVERSITY LAW CENTER is hiring a clinical teaching fellow and supervising attorney for its Domestic Violence Clinic.

    Description of the Fellowship

    The Georgetown University Law Center’s Domestic Violence Clinic hires one person to serve as a clinical teaching fellow and supervising attorney each year, for a two-year term. Fellows work with Professors Deborah Epstein and Rachel Camp, and their responsibilities include: representing survivors of family abuse in CPO cases; designing and teaching Clinic seminar classes; and supervising third-year law students in their representation of clients. Throughout the program, fellows receive extensive supervision and training on their litigation skills, providing them with a substantial opportunity to improve as litigators. The fellowship experience is also designed to develop fellows’ skills as clinical law professors and launch them on a career in clinical law teaching; all of our fellows who have sought teaching jobs over the past decade or more have successfully obtained a teaching position.

    Clinic fellows also pursue a program of graduate study, through a seminar course on clinical pedagogy, taught collectively by the Georgetown clinical faculty. (Fellows also may audit regular law school courses). In addition, during the first year of the program, fellows are members of the Women’s Law and Public Policy Fellowship Program, where they have an opportunity to collaborate with lawyers doing a variety of women’s rights legal work in Washington, D.C., and to meet with Congresswoman Eleanor Holmes Norton and other long-time leaders in the feminist legal community.

    Preference will be given to applicants who have a background or demonstrated interest in family law, domestic violence, or poverty law and who have some trial practice experience. Applicants must have excellent oral and written advocacy skills, and must be admitted to a Bar at the time of submitting their application. Any fellow who is offered the position and is not a member of the D.C. Bar must apply for admission by waiver immediately following acceptance.

     

    Description of the Clinic

    Students in the Domestic Violence Clinic represent victims of all forms of domestic abuse in civil protection order (“CPO”) cases in D.C. Superior Court. The Clinic provides students with an intensive, challenging education in the art of trial advocacy, extensive hands-on experience with family law and poverty lawyering, and the opportunity to alleviate a crucial community need for legal representation. Through course work and client representation, students are exposed to every phase of expedited civil litigation. Students also learn to navigate the criminal justice system by working, in cases where it is consistent with their client’s wishes, with the U.S. Attorney’s Office in prosecutions against those accused of abusing Clinic clients.

    Students litigate to obtain CPOs that last for up to one year and can include a broad spectrum of relief designed to effectively end the violence in a family or dating relationship. For example, a judge may direct a person causing harm to cease assaulting and threatening the victim; to stay away from the victim’s home, person and workplace; and not to contact the victim in any manner. The judge may award temporary custody of the parties’ minor children, with visitation rights for the non-custodial parent, and award child and/or spousal support. Finally, each semester students develop a group project focused on improving law, policy, or community education, that is designed to expose them to alternatives beyond direct client litigation for pursuing social justice for their client base.

    In the Clinic seminar, faculty and fellows provide intensive instruction to Clinic students on a wide variety of topics, including the civil, family, criminal, evidentiary and ethical laws and rules applicable to domestic violence litigation, the psychological dynamics of intimate partner violence, trauma-informed lawyering, storytelling, and the importance of empathy. In class, students participate in exercises designed to develop and refine essential litigation skills such as conducting direct and cross examinations, delivering opening statements and closing arguments, introducing exhibits into evidence, and conducting negotiations.

     

    Application Process

    Please complete the Women's Law & Public Policy Fellowship Program application and submit it to BOTH the Domestic Violence Clinic (dvclinic@law.georgetown.edu) and the Women’s Law and Public Policy Fellowship Program (wlppfp@law.georgetown.edu).

    Applications must be submitted by Friday, November 11, 2022.

    The fellowship begins in early July 2023, and, following a two-year term, terminates in June 2025.

    ST. JOHN'S UNIVERSITY SCHOOL OF LAW seeks candidates for a full-time clinical professor for our in-house Securities Arbitration Clinic, beginning June 1, 2023. Prof. Christine Lazaro, the Director of the Clinic, will be taking on the additional role of Vice Dean for Academic Affairs starting in Summer 2023. We are seeking to add an additional clinical professor to work with Prof. Lazaro as assistant director, associate director, or co-director of the clinic, depending on experience.

    The Law School has a robust clinical program covering a wide array of practice areas, promoting social and economic justice for client communities. All clinics engage in direct client representation as well as law/policy reform. The Clinic will also have a seminar component. The position provides opportunities and support for scholarly research and writing, if desired, but this is not a requirement as clinical scholarship is defined more broadly (e.g., writing amicus briefs, op-eds, etc.).

    During the clinical professor’s first year of appointment, the Professor will teach the Securities Arbitration Clinic, a 4-credit course taught in each of the fall and spring semesters. The class meets once weekly, and the Professor is expected to be on campus throughout the week while students are conducting office hours on their cases. In the Professor’s second year, the Professor will teach additional courses, building up to a teaching load of the Clinic each semester, as well as 4 additional credits per year by the Professor’s third year. A candidate hired as an Assistant Professor of Clinical Legal Education will be given a one-year renewable contract. A candidate hired as an Associate Professor of Clinical Legal Education will be given a presumptively renewable five-year contract; and a candidate hired as a Professor of Clinical Legal Education will be given a presumptively renewable nine-year contract.

    Clinical faculty are fully engaged members of the Law School community. The starting salary for new clinical professors and tenure-track faculty is the same. All faculty, including clinical professors, are able to hire research and teaching assistants, participate in faculty colloquia, receive support for academic travel, and are eligible for summer research grants and publication awards. They are encouraged to undertake scholarship and are supported in doing so. They participate in committees, hold administrative positions, and engage in other aspects of shared governance.

    Qualifications include the following: a J.D. degree; a minimum of five years of experience as a practicing lawyer; membership in good standing in the NY bar; significant experience practicing in securities arbitration before FINRA and other self-regulatory organizations; excellent written and oral communication skills and advocacy skills; a demonstrated ability to work both collaboratively and independently; and a demonstrated commitment to investor education and protection. Clinical or other relevant teaching and mentoring experience and experience in program design and development are preferred.

    St. John’s Law is located in New York City in the borough of Queens, one of the most diverse urban counties in the United States. St. John’s Law is part of St. John’s University, a Catholic, Vincentian, metropolitan, and global institution with campuses in New York, Rome, and Paris that is committed to academic excellence and service to those lacking economic, physical, or social advantages. St. John’s University is an Equal Opportunity Employer that does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national or ethnic origin, sex (including sexual harassment and sexual violence), sexual orientation, gender identity and gender expression, disability, religion, age, status in the uniformed services of the United States (including veteran status), marital status, status as a victim of domestic violence, citizenship status, genetic predisposition, carrier status, or any other classification protected under federal, state, or local law. We are deeply committed to equity, inclusion, and anti-racism, and we are particularly interested in candidates who will enrich the diversity of our faculty.

    Applications should include a cover letter, curriculum vitae, writing sample, the names of three references, and teaching evaluations (if available). Please send materials in a single PDF to Professor Rachel H. Smith, Co-Chair, Faculty Appointments Committee, at lawfac@stjohns.edu.

    THE UNIVERSITY OF PENNSYLVANIA CAREY LAW SCHOOL invites applicants for the position of Clinical Supervisor and Lecturer in its Civil Practice Clinic. The Civil Practice Clinic (CPC) is Penn Law’s oldest in-house, live client clinic. It enjoys a long and distinguished history of providing high-quality, legal assistance to indigent clients in a broad range of civil litigation matters, while promoting the professional development of students who serve as the front-line lawyers for their clients.

    The Clinical Supervisor and Lecturer will work closely with the Director of the CPC and other CPC faculty in all activities, including course planning, teaching, supervising and mentoring law students, representing clients, and coordinating with other providers of civil legal assistance in the local community. The Clinical Supervisor will assist CPC students in developing and enhancing core lawyering competencies including client interviewing, case planning, client counseling, fact development, problem solving, legal research and writing, ethical decision-making, negotiation, and trial presentation skills. Students are certified by state and federal courts to engage in all aspects of lawyering under faculty supervision, and they provide legal assistance individually and in teams on matters such as housing, consumer, employment, public benefits, civil rights, and civil asset forfeiture. Students also participate in weekly “case rounds” discussions of their cases where they engage collaboratively in problem solving on difficult substantive and ethical issues that arise in litigation.

    The successful applicant will begin as soon as practicable with the hope of having someone join our team to begin teaching in the fall semester. The position is a contract position that is annually renewable up to a maximum of 5 years. It is the Clinic’s goal and expectation that the selected candidate will receive training, mentoring, and experience in all aspects of teaching, supervising, and running a successful litigation clinic that will enable the individual to pursue a career in legal academia, if desired, upon completion of service at Penn Law.

    Applicants should be licensed attorneys who have 5+ years of experience in civil litigation, a strong commitment to promoting access to justice, and a demonstrated interest in nurturing student development. Admission to the Pennsylvania bar within one year is required. The successful applicant will possess excellent organizational, communication, and advocacy skills and will be someone who works well independently and as a member of a team. A record of strong academic achievement, commitment to serving diverse, low-income communities, and intellectual engagement with the law are essential.

    The Clinical Supervisor and Lecturer will work closely with the Director of the ELC in all activities, including course planning, teaching, supervising and mentoring law students, representing clients, clinic administration, and community education, engagement and outreach.

    The successful applicant will challenge ELC students to practice and hone a variety of core competencies that will be critical in their careers (fact development, framing and analyzing legal issues, negotiating and drafting, and client counseling), but also to develop critical capacities for exercising judgment, solving problems, cultivating a professional identity, communicating (through a variety of modes) with clients and supervisors, collaborating with peers, and managing projects, people and expectations.

    Applicants should be licensed attorneys who have a minimum of 5 years of experience in a general business or transactional law practice and demonstrated acumen in business planning, structuring, negotiation, contract drafting, and community engagement.

Teaching experience (or a passion for teaching), creativity, strategic thinking, and demonstrated ability to work with culturally and economically diverse groups are highly valued.

    The successful applicant will begin teaching as early as January 2023 but no later than July 2023. The position is a contract position that is annually renewable up to a maximum of 5 years.

    THE UNIVERSITY OF BALTIMORE SCHOOL OF LAW invites applications for a fellowship to start on or about December 2, 2022, in the University of Baltimore Low-Income Taxpayer Clinic. 

    Vacancy number 301291

    Position Type: Faculty position with full, competitive benefits package
    Opens: 09/13/22     Closes: Open Until Filled

    Salary: $70,000

    Position is open until filled but priority is given to applications submitted by October 1, 2022.

    This full-time, year-round, 3-year public interest fellowship program, offers superb mentorship and training as Fellows transition from law practice to law faculty, providing intensive support in areas of pedagogy, academic writing, and more.  Many former Fellows are now in long-term teaching positions at other institutions. (https://law.ubalt.edu/clinics/docs/080421%20Fellow%20alumni%20for%20webpage.pdf).  
    Because we value the diversity of our faculty and student body, we welcome all qualified candidates including members of communities that are traditionally under-represented in the legal profession and academia.
     
    This posting is specifically for the Low-Income Taxpayer Clinic (LITC), although, Fellowship positions for other areas of practice are available as well (Immigrant Rights and Justice Clinics as well as the Criminal Defense an Advocacy Clinic).  The Low-Income Taxpayer Clinic provides education, advocacy, and representation to low-income taxpayers.  It educates taxpayers as to their rights and responsibilities as taxpayers, identifies and advocates issues that disparately effect low-income taxpayers, and represents them in federal tax disputes and related state tax matters.  Its cases involve administrative controversies before the Internal Revenue Service and litigation in federal courts.  Students serve as first-chair attorneys under the guidance and support of law school faculty, including the Fellow.  Typical student work includes arguing innocent spouse applications, preparing audit reconsiderations, briefing, and appearing in collection matters (including Collection Due Process hearings and offers in compromise), and handling cases in Tax Court, including appearing at U.S. Tax Court calendar calls and volunteering for settlement days.  Additional student work may include occasional outreach, such as educational presentations, to low-income taxpayers and community partners.       
     
    The Fellow’s duties include direct supervision of clinic students’ client, case, and community education work; co-teaching a weekly clinic seminar; engaging in course planning and preparation with the other faculty members in the Clinic, including LITC Director, Janice Shih; and facilitating and participating in community outreach and education.  During the winter and summer breaks in the academic year, the Fellow will cover client matters, continue with outreach and education as scheduled, handle additional clinical program duties as assigned, and develop their academic writing.  

    This position is a full-time, year-round, contractual appointment for three and a half years.  Because the LITC serves evening students, the Fellow will teach at least one evening each week during the fall and spring semesters, with daytime hours adjusted accordingly.   

    The Fellowship focuses its first year and a half on the skills of teaching, from crafting and leading seminars, to facilitating supervision meetings with student-attorneys. The second year of the fellowship focuses on developing legal scholarship. The third year, we support the Fellow to go on the clinical teaching job market if they so choose. For more details about the Fellows’ Program, please view our website at http://law.ubalt.edu/clinics/fellows/
     
    Qualifications:  Two or more years of experience as a practicing lawyer, primarily in the field of tax controversy; exceptional oral and written communication skills; a demonstrated interest in working for low-income clients; and an interest in mentoring and teaching. Fellows must be members of the Maryland Bar, willing to become members of the Bar, or qualified to obtain a certification of authorization to practice for out-of-state supervising attorneys under Maryland Rules 19-218 and 19-220.  The Fellow must also be a member of the bar of the U.S. Tax Court or able to seek admission to the bar of the U.S. Tax Court and willing to complete the necessary documentation to be permitted by the Internal Revenue Service to supervise law practice by students.
     
    Salary:  The current salary is $67,000/year.  The position includes full benefits, including retirement plan. Benefits are listed here (see under “Faculty and Regular Employees”):
    https://www.ubalt.edu/about-ub/offices-and-services/human-resources/benefits/index.cfm.  The position also includes research support, and a travel allowance to attend relevant conferences and workshops.  Candidates in the Public Service Loan Forgiveness Program are encouraged to investigate whether employment at the University of Baltimore, a state educational institution, may qualify.   
     
    We look forward to receiving your required electronic application, including a letter of interest, resume, and brief statement about how your candidacy would support traditionally underrepresented communities in the legal profession and academia.   
     
    The position is open until filled.  For more details about the Fellows’ Program, please view our website at
