    Georgia State University’s College of Law seeks applicants for a full-time Clinical Professor responsible for teaching and the day-to-day operations of Georgia State University College of Law’s new Investor Advocacy Clinic, an in-house clinic.  This is a non-tenure track clinical faculty position with faculty status, a renewable contract, and job security commensurate with tenure-track faculty.  Clinical faculty have voting rights and serve on faculty committees at the College of Law.  Appointment could begin as early as January 2013.

    The Clinical Professor will play a significant role in the development of the new clinic.  In addition, the Clinical Professor will supervise students in all aspects of client representation; have primary responsibility for case selection and client communication; develop and teach related coursework; coordinate with other Georgia State University units in the participation of non-law graduate students in the clinic; and have primary responsibility for the day-to-day administration of the clinic.
    The Investor Advocacy Clinic will serve small investors through education and individual representation. Specifically, the clinic will provide legal assistance and advice to investors who have suffered losses resulting from broker misconduct (claims including, but not limited to, misrepresentation, unsuitability, unauthorized trading, excessive trading (“churning”), and failure to supervise) but cannot afford or find private legal representation because of the size of their claim.
     
    Qualifications for this position include:
    ·         A J.D. degree from an ABA-accredited law school and a strong academic record.
    ·         Excellent experience in legal practice and lawyering skills (preferably in securities arbitration and/or securities litigation).
    ·         A proven record of (or clear demonstrated potential for) successful teaching and professional engagement.
    ·         Membership in or ability to become a member of the State Bar of Georgia.
     
    Application: Please submit letters of interest and CVs to Professor Kendall Kerew at lawclinicrecruit@gsu.edu.
     
    Georgia State University, a unit of the University System of Georgia, is an equal opportunity educational institution and an equal opportunity/affirmative action employer. We encourage applications from minorities, women and others who would enrich the diversity of our academic community.

    Cardozo School of Law invites applications for a full-time faculty position as Assistant Clinical Professor of Law to work in its established Kathryn O. Greenberg Immigration Justice Clinic with the clinic’s existing director.

    Applicants must be skilled and creative lawyers with an interest and ability to supervise students in both individual litigation and law reform projects. Applicants must also possess a profound interest in the educational mission of the clinic: to develop the next generation of immigrant advocates and, more generally, to teach students the lawyering skills necessary to serve individual clients and to reform our legal system. Foreign language abilities and prior experience working with immigrant communities are desirable but not required. Applicants need not be admitted to the New York bar at time of application but, if hired, will be expected to obtain admission.
    The clinic’s mission is to offer an outstanding legal educational experience to its students, to provide individual representation to immigrants in traditionally neglected areas, and to serve the immigrant community in efforts to reform law and public policy. The clinic’s emphasis has historically been on removal defense cases for immigrants who are detained or who have had prior contact with the criminal justice system. In addition, the clinic represents immigrant community based and national advocacy organizations on impact projects related to immigration enforcement issues. These projects involve a broad range of legal work including, for example: impact litigation, legal support for legislative advocacy, report writing, administrative advocacy and media work. In all individual and impact cases students perform the critical legal work under the intensive supervision of clinic faculty. The school is committed to maintaining the model of having students work on both individual cases and impact projects and is committed to directing our resources toward the least served immigrant populations.

    Interested candidates should send a cover letter, references and c.v. to Zsuzsanna Toth at toth@yu.edu. Applications will be accepted starting September 1, 2012.

    The Jacob Burns Community Legal Clinics of The George Washington
    University Law School announce the availability of new graduate
    clinical fellowships for the academic years of 2013-15.  In
    recognition of the generous gift of Philip Friedman, the Fellows are
    known as Friedman Fellows.  Friedman Fellows obtain LL.M. degrees
    while examining and engaging in clinical legal education and public
    interest law.

    The 2013-15 Friedman Fellowships begin in the summer of 2013.  Each
    fellowship is affiliated with a specific law school clinic.  Although
    the various clinics provide the fellows diverse responsibilities and
    experiences, each provides the Fellow with opportunities to co-teach
    and co-supervise, alongside experienced clinical faculty, the law
    students enrolled in the clinic.

    The Friedman Fellowship program enables every Fellow to learn about
    clinical education and public interest lawyering through the practice
    of engaging in each, teaching and supervising law students engaged in
    these endeavors, and participating in a program of study in which
    these are the primary topics of inquiry.  In the process, Fellows
    receive mentorship and support from the clinical faculty and
    administration, and the law school in general.

    Fellows enroll in two year-long courses in Clinical Teaching and
    Scholarship taught by the Associate Dean for Clinical Affairs and
    other clinical faculty.  As part of this course sequence, Fellows
    receive specific instruction and guidance in teaching and supervising
    law students, and in writing a publishable thesis.  Fellows also
    enroll part-time in other law school classes, and receive an LL.M.
    degree upon completion of the class and thesis requirements of the
    LL.M. program.

    We are currently seeking applications from candidates with strong
    academic, clinical, and lawyering experience.  We are especially
    interested in applications from lawyers with background and experience
    in the following areas: appellate advocacy, administrative advocacy,
    criminal defense, post-conviction re-entry, housing law, family law,
    domestic violence, public benefits, employment law, civil litigation, transactional law, and community economic development law.  Fellows receive an annual stipend
    between $45,000 and $50,000, tuition remission for the LL.M. program,
    health insurance and other benefits, and possible student loan
    deferment.  Fellows must be members of a state bar.  Candidates who
    are not members of the D.C. Bar must be eligible for immediate waiver
    into the D.C. Bar.

    Applicants should send letters of interest, resumes, a list of
    references, and a complete law school transcript by October 24, 2012
    to Associate Dean Phyllis Goldfarb.  The preferred submission method
    is by email to clinicadmin@law.gwu.edu. In the alternative,
    applications can be mailed to the Jacob Burns Community Legal Clinics
    c/o Executive Assistant Norma Lamont, The George Washington University
    Law School, 2000 G St. NW, Washington, DC 20052.  The George
    Washington University Law School is an Affirmative Action/Equal
    Opportunity employer. The University undertakes special efforts to
    employ a diverse workforce.

    The Social Enterprise and Nonprofit Law Clinic will open in Fall 2013. The Clinic introduces and orients law students to the materials, expectations, disciplines, and vocabulary of corporate law practice while also challenging students to reflect on and innovate legal reforms that further the social enterprise movement. The Clinic embraces a focused and explicit use of clinical education to enhance law students' commitment to laws and business practices that promote triple-bottom line corporate sustainability, which in its most expansive meaning includes financial and environmental sustainability as well as the physical, psychological, and social well-being of individuals and communities.

    In the Clinic, law students learn about corporate governance and contexts, shareholders and stakeholders, business relationships and operations, and business documents. Students are taught how to become partners in enterprise for their clients with the understanding that innovative business lawyers understand both the legal and non-legal incentive structures that drive business organizations.

    The Clinic’s clients consist of (1) social enterprises, i.e., nonprofits and select for-profit businesses that employ innovative business techniques to accomplish social and environmental goals, and (2) middle-market and established nonprofit organizations and foundations working in a wide range of fields including social services, education, youth development, technology, health, sustainable agriculture, and civil rights.

    Description of Fellowship

    The two-year fellowship is an ideal position for a transactional lawyer interested in developing teaching and supervisory abilities in a setting that emphasizes a dual commitmentundefinedclinical education of law students and the promotion of triple-bottom line corporate sustainability. The fellow will have several areas of responsibility, with an increasing role as the fellowship progresses. Over the course of the fellowship, the fellow will: (i) supervise students in representing nonprofit organizations and social enterprises on transactional, operational, and corporate governance matters, (ii) share responsibility for teaching seminar sessions, and (iii) share in the administrative and case handling responsibilities of the Clinic. Fellows also participate in a clinical pedagogy seminar and other activities designed to support an interest in clinical teaching and legal education. The fellowship start date is July 1, 2013, and the fellowship is for two years, ending June 30, 2015.

    Qualifications

    Applicants must have at least 3 years of post J.D. legal experience. Preference will be given to applicants with experience in a transactional area of practice such as nonprofit law and tax, corporate law, intellectual property, real estate, or finance. Applicants with a strong commitment to economic justice and corporate sustainability are encouraged to apply. Applicants must be admitted or willing to be admitted to the District of Columbia Bar. 

    Application Process

    To apply, send a resume, an official or unofficial law school transcript, C.V., and a detailed letter of interest by December 1, 2012.  The letter should be no longer than two pages and address a) why you are interested in this fellowship; b) what you can contribute to the Clinic; c) your experience with transactional matters and/or corporate law; and d) anything else that you consider pertinent. Please address your application to Professor Alicia Plerhoples, Georgetown Law, 600 New Jersey Ave., NW, Suite 434, Washington, D.C. 20001, or electronically to socialenterprise@law.georgetown.edu.

    Boston College Law School seeks to hire two clinical professors.  One position is in Children/Juvenile Rights; the other is in Immigration Law.

    Immigration Clinic:  We seek a clinical professor to teach in our longstanding, well-known Immigration and Asylum Clinic, and to be engaged with our many immigration law-related courses and programs.   As currently structured, the Immigration and Asylum Clinic provides students with the opportunity to apply their substantive learning about immigration law in a hands-on, real-world setting.  Students advise or represent clients in a wide range of immigration matters including deportation defense, “crim/imm” matters, asylum, waivers, adjustment of status, bond, appellate litigation, “know your rights” presentations, and amicus briefing.  With much training and close faculty supervision, students interview clients, draft applications, prepare lay and expert witnesses, analyze criminal records, develop case tactics and strategies, and try cases in court. We fully support this model but we are open to considering new ideas and models that are consonant with other course offerings, our institutional commitment to the highest-quality experiential learning, and to social justice.   The clinical professor might also teach related courses, such as an Advanced Immigration Law Seminar. Applicants must demonstrate a superior substantive knowledge of the field and experience with--and dedication to--clinical teaching.  3-5 years of experience in the field and admission to a bar that will permit the applicant to practice immigration law in Massachusetts are strongly preferred.

     

    Boston College, a Jesuit, Catholic university, is an Affirmative Action and Equal Opportunity Employer and encourages all interested persons to apply.

    Boston College Law School seeks to hire two clinical professors.  One position is in Children/Juvenile Rights; the other is in Immigration Law.


    Children/Juvenile Rights:  We seek a clinical professor committed to both clinical pedagogy and the rights of children and juveniles.  The faculty member would direct the BCLS clinic currently dedicated to that under-served population.   As currently structured, our Juvenile Rights Advocacy Clinic provides representation for youth involved in the juvenile justice system on legal issues related to their delinquency or their status.  In addition, the clinic has also received court appointments as the Guardians ad litem for youth.   Case representation involves special education advocacy for delinquent youth, many of whom have been excluded from school. In addition, students may represent youth committed to the Massachusetts Department of Youth Services through the post-disposition phase of their cases. Issues include a significant measure of education law, law of status offenses, delinquency, administrative advocacy, child abuse and neglect, and public benefits. JRAP works with the Youth Advocacy Department of the Committee for Public Counsel Services (YAD).  Cases are presently heard in Suffolk and Middlesex counties (including Boston, Cambridge and Lowell).  The Committee is open to candidates’ views on the existing model and other possible directions for a clinic dedicated to the rights of children and juveniles. Applicants must demonstrate a superior substantive knowledge of the field and experience with, and dedication to, clinical teaching.  3-5 years of experience in the field, and admission to the Massachusetts bar (or a willingness to become admitted) are strongly preferred.
