    The Georgetown Law Center is offering Clinical Teaching Fellowships in most of its 14 clinics to new and experienced attorneys for the 2013-2015 academic years.  Each two-year fellowship is associated with one of the Law Center’s clinical programs, and each program varies in purpose, requirements, and duties.  All of the clinical fellowships, however, share a common goal: to provide highly motivated lawyers the chance to develop skills as teachers and legal advocates within an exciting and supportive educational environment.   Fellows directly supervise J.D. students enrolled in the clinics, assist in teaching clinic seminars, and perform work on their own cases or other legal matters. Fellowships will begin in the summer of 2013, with an intensive orientation designed to introduce fellows to clinical teaching methods. Upon completing the requirements for graduation, fellows are awarded the degree of Master of Laws (Advocacy).  Graduates of Georgetown’s clinical fellowship program have gone on to prestigious positions in law teaching and public interest law settings.

    Teaching fellows receive an annual stipend of approximately $53,500 (taxable), health and dental benefits, and all tuition and fees in the LL.M. program.  As full-time students, teaching fellows qualify for deferment of their student loans. In addition, teaching fellows may be eligible for loan repayment assistance from their law schools.

    The application deadlines for each clinic are listed below.  To apply for a fellowship, please go to the website for that clinic and follow the application process described by the clinic.   Each clinic makes its own hiring decisions. 

    ***With the exception of fellows in the Center for Applied Legal Studies and the Street Law Clinic, all fellows must be members of the D.C. bar. Fellowship applicants who are admitted to a bar elsewhere must apply to waive into the D.C. bar upon accepting their fellowship offer. The Law Center will reimburse the expense of waiving into the D.C. bar incurred by those fellows who have already taken the bar exam elsewhere prior to accepting their fellowship offer.

    The City University of New York (CUNY) School of Law seeks an exceptional individual to serve as its Associate Dean of Clinical Programs. We look for a person who will be a creative and committed leader for our well developed in-house clinic and externship program. The Associate Dean will lead an outstanding group of faculty members who together have developed a nationally-ranked clinical program. We seek a person who shares our commitment to social justice, who thinks deeply about practice models and strategies that work to promote justice, and who brings pedagogical insights to the design of programs to educate the next generation of public interest lawyers.

     

    The appointment to lead our highly regarded clinical program comes at an important time in the history of our unique public service institution. In June 2012, the law school relocated to a LEED Gold certified new facility centrally located at Two Court Square in Long Island City, Queens. The new building has direct access to multiple New York City subway and bus lines, is convenient to regional commuter railroads, and is easily accessed by local highways. The new location, in a vibrant neighborhood one subway stop from Manhattan, puts the law school at the heart of the nation's public interest community in the most diverse city in the country and affords opportunities for the new Associate Dean to enhance instructional and public service activities for the clinic.

     

    Since its founding in 1983, the CUNY School of Law's mission has been to train a diverse group of students to become excellent public interest lawyers. Consistent with this mission, the school has developed a rich lawyering curriculum spanning three years and culminating in a clinical program required for all third-year students. Recently, the Carnegie Report praised our educational program for the unique way it prepares students for practice through extensive curriculum integration of law, lawyering and ethical decision-making. The Associate Dean plays a pivotal role in shaping the overall curriculum and in providing leadership to the clinical program.

     

    The Associate Dean facilitates the work of 18 faculty, 6 staff, and approximately 160 students each academic year. The program encompasses 7 live-client clinics (Community & Economic Development, Criminal Defense, Economic Justice Project, Elder Law, Immigrant & Refugee Rights, International Women's Human Rights, Mediation) in which students and faculty practice under the umbrella of a 501(c)(3) organization called Main Street Legal Services, Inc. (MSLS). MSLS provides legal assistance to over 1000 clients per year. The program also includes three concentration programs (Equality, Family and Health) in which students are placed in public interest law offices and participate in a substantial curricular module.

     

    In addition to the above responsibilities, the Associate Dean for Clinical Programs is expected to maintain and enhance academic excellence in the program, fully implement justice initiatives, lead curricular and program development at the Law School, represent the Law School in Local and National Legal, Educational, and Social Justice Communities, teach classes as needed, provide leadership in fund raising initiatives and assist in seeking external support for programs. This position may include weekend and evening hours

     

    MINIMUM QUALIFICATIONS

     

    This position is in CUNY's Executive Compensation Plan. All executive positions require a minimum of a Bachelor's degree and eight years' related experience. Additional qualifications are defined below by the College.

     

    OTHER QUALIFICATIONS

     

    We seek a creative educator with significant legal practice experience and abilities, and a strong commitment to social justice and to working with diverse communities. Experience in clinical education and a record of scholarly achievement are highly favored. We look for someone with a collaborative leadership style, a developed set of management skills, and the ability to articulate and communicate the vision of the Law School's clinical program within the Law School, to the New York and national legal communities, and to the broader educational community.

     

    J.D. or its equivalent, significant practice and teaching experience, scholarly achievement or the equivalent, and demonstrated management experience are required. Administrative, budgetary, and fund raising experience are preferred. New York State bar admission or the ability to be admitted on motion within one year of appointment is necessary to conform to MSLS's practice order (See New York Judiciary Law Sections 478 and 484).

     

    COMPENSATION

     

    Commensurate with experience.

     

    BENEFITS

     

    CUNY offers a comprehensive benefits package to employees and eligible dependents based on job title and classification. Employees are also offered pension and Tax-Deferred Savings Plans. Part-time employees must meet a weekly or semester work hour criteria to be eligible for health benefits. Health benefits are also extended to retirees who meet the eligibility criteria.
