    The MIC works to exonerate actually innocent criminal defendants who have been convicted in state or federal court in Michigan. The MIC primarily works on cases where there is no DNA to test, and so the work of the Clinic largely involves finding new witnesses, searching for suppressed evidence, and challenging discredited or outdated forensic science. The MIC opened in 2009 and in its 14-year history, it has secured victories in 41 cases on behalf of clients who served anywhere from a few months to over 45 years in prison for crimes they did not commit. In addition to supervising students and summer interns while working collaboratively to litigate cases of the MIC's clients, this position also entails co-teaching the clinic seminar for two semesters each year.

Our commitments to collegiality, to constructive and challenging debate, and to enabling our students to pursue a wide range of options explain why the Law School has long been committed to diversity along many dimensions.

The University of Michigan is located in Ann Arbor, Michigan, which is considered among the best places in the United States to live and work.

    At Michigan Law, we view our commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion as central to our mission as an educational institution and we seek to ensure that each member of our community has full opportunity to thrive in our environment. We believe that diversity is key to individual flourishing, educational excellence, and the advancement of knowledge and we maintain a deep commitment to fostering a diverse community in which all students, staff, and faculty learn and work in an atmosphere of inclusion and respect.

    Required Qualifications*

Candidates must demonstrate a strong interest in clinical teaching and innocence litigation, as well as potential for scholarship. Candidates must hold a J.D. and be eligible for licensure in Michigan.  

    Additional Information

    This is a full-time contractual appointment that can lead to a long-term clinical contract.
