    Please complete an application, and submit it to both the Domestic Violence Clinic and the Women's Law and Public Policy Fellowship Program at dvclinic@law.georgetown.edu and wlppfp@law.georgetown.edu.  Please be sure to indicate your interest in the Domestic Violence Clinic on the application.  Applications must be submitted by Friday, November 16, 2012.  Those selected to interview will be interviewed in December or January, with selection following shortly thereafter.  Start date is in early July, 2013, and the fellowship is two years, terminating in June, 2015.

    Description of the Clinic
    Students in the Domestic Violence Clinic represent victims of intimate 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. Attorneys Office in prosecutions against those accused of abusing Clinic clients.

    Students litigate to obtain Civil Protection Orders ("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, in a CPO, a judge may direct a batterer 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, so that a victim is not forced to return to a batterer due to economic necessity.

    To prepare students to appear in court, Clinic faculty provide intensive instruction in evidence, civil procedure, and legal ethics, as well as the civil, family, and criminal law applicable to domestic violence litigation. In the seminar class, students participate in exercises designed to develop and refine essential litigation skills such as conducting direct and cross examination, delivering opening statements and closing arguments, introducing exhibits into evidence, and conducting negotiations. In addition, students hear from expert guest speakers on topics such as the psychological dynamics of battering and victimization, immigration and domestic violence, and counseling programs designed for the perpetrator community.

    Description of the Fellowship
    The Domestic Violence Clinic hires one person to serve as a clinical teaching fellow and supervising attorney each year, for a two-year term.  Fellows have several areas of responsibility, including: representing victims of family abuse in CPO cases; designing and teaching Clinic seminar classes; and supervising third-year law students in their representation of clients.  The fellowship experience is designed particularly to develop the fellow's skills as a clinical instructor and to introduce fellows to a career in clinical law teaching. Throughout the fellowship, fellows also receive extensive supervision and training on their litigation skills.

    Clinic fellows also pursue a program of graduate study, through an Introduction to Clinical Pedagogy seminar, taught by the Georgetown clinical faculty. Fellows also may audit regular law school courses. Finally, during the first year, fellows also 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. For a description of the Women's Law and Public Policy Fellowship Program visit their webpage at http://www.law.georgetown.edu/academics/centers-institutes/wlppfp/us/index.cfm.

    The Clinic prefers, but does not require, applications who have a background in family law, domestic violence, or poverty law and who have some trial practice experience. Fellows must have excellent oral and written advocacy skills, and must be admitted to a Bar prior to commencing the fellowship. Those fellows who are not members of the D.C. Bar must apply for admission by waiver upon accepting the fellowship offer.

    The Clinical Law Review seeks applications for two vacancies on the Board of Editors and for the position of one of the three co-Editors-in-Chief. The Board of Editors urges you to think about whether you would be interested, and to think about others whom you would encourage to apply.

    Members of the Board of Editors serve for a term of 6 years. The term of the new Board members will commence in January 2014. Board meetings customarily are held twice a year: once at the annual Clinical Law Review Workshop at the end of September and once at the AALS Spring clinical workshop or conference. Board members are expected to attend meetings regularly. Policy matters for the Review and status of upcoming issues are discussed at these meetings. Throughout the year, Board members are asked to work with authors to edit articles. Board members also customarily serve as small group leaders in the Clinical Law Review Workshop.

    The Review has three co-Editors-in-Chief. Kate Kruse is ending her term as co-Editor-in-Chief but will stay on the Board as an Emeritus Editor-in-Chief. Randy Hertz and Michael Pinard are the two other co-Editors-in-Chief, with whom the new co-Editor-in-Chief will work closely. The responsibilities of a co-Editor-in-Chief include final decisions on acceptance and rejection of pieces and the editing of articles. A considerable time commitment is involved but all three co-Editors-in-Chief endorse it as very rewarding work. The co-Editors-in-Chief also must attend Board meetings as previously described. The term of the new co-Editor-in-Chief will commence in January 2014.  Familiarity with the operations of the Journal, through current or prior service on the Board of Editors, is preferred.  The CLR bylaws set the EIC appointment at 6 years.

    Applicants should explain their interest in the position and should highlight the aspects of their experience that they believe are most relevant. The Board seeks applications from people committed to the work of the Review and strives to select people with diverse backgrounds and varying experiences in and approaches to clinical legal education. Applications and supporting resumes must be received no later than April 1, 2013. Please email them to me at bbarton@utk.edu.

    The committee to select new Board members is always chaired by a current Board member whose term is expiring. I will be serving this year as the chair of the Selection Committee. The other members of the committee will be designated by the three organizations that sponsor the Clinical Law Review -- AALS, CLEA, and NYU -- each of which will designate two committee members.

    I encourage you to contact me or other current or former Board members with any questions or for information about service on the Board or the work of a co-Editor-in-Chief. My fellow Board members and I have found it a very rewarding and informative way to continue the advancement of clinical legal education.

    The other members of the Board are: Sameer Ashar, Margaret Martin Barry, Keith Findley, Michele Gilman, Phyllis Goldfarb, Carolyn Grose, Marty Guggenheim, Mae Quinn, and Brenda Smith. The current Editors-in-Chief are Randy Hertz, Kate Kruse, and Michael Pinard. Those who previously served on the Board are: Jane Aiken, Tony Alfieri, Bev Balos, Juliet Brodie, Angela Burton, Stacy Caplow, Bob Dinerstein, Jon Dubin, Cecelia Espenoza, Gay Gellhorn, Peter Toll Hoffman, Jonathan Hyman, Peter Joy, Minna Kotkin, Deborah Maranville, Bridget McCormack, Binny Miller, Kim O’Leary, Ascanio Piomelli, Paul Reingold, Jim Stark, Paul Tremblay, Nina Tarr, Rod Uphoff, and Leah Wortham.
