    The Practitioner-in-Residence Program, created in 1998, is a program designed to train lawyers or entry-level clinicians interested in becoming clinical teachers in the practice and theory of clinical legal education.

Practitioners supervise student casework, co-teach weekly clinic seminars and case rounds, and engage in course planning and preparation with the clinic’s tenured faculty. They also teach a course outside of the clinical curriculum. The Practitioner-in-Residence Program provides full-year training in clinical theory and methodology and a writing workshop designed to assist Practitioners in the development of their clinical and doctrinal scholarship.

    Minimum qualifications include a JD degree, outstanding academic record, three years’ experience as a lawyer and membership in a state bar.

Fellows will be enrolled in a course each semester to explore clinical teaching methodologies and develop as clinical instructors and student lawyer supervisors. Clients and matters from an existing clinic will be part of the fellows’ responsibility, but there will be opportunities for innovation and original design. The fellows will also have the opportunity to work on scholarship and pursue other learning goals.

    These are a non-tenure track positions, on a 12-month basis. Salary is $48,000 to $55,000, depending upon experience and qualifications.

    Fellows will be joining a clinical program committed to innovative teaching that helps graduate profession-ready students. The program has the following mission statement: "In the SUNY Buffalo Law School Clinical Legal Education Program, students and faculty engage in practical legal thinking and ethical practice through client representation, policy development, and effective problem-solving in experiential settings. Student lawyers work with skilled faculty, experiencing lawyers' unique and critical role as valued contributors to the legal profession and larger society."
