HEALTH LAW CLINIC FACULTY POSITION ANNOUNCEMENT
The University of Pittsburgh School of Law invites applications for a full-time faculty position at the rank of Assistant Clinical Professor or Associate Clinical Professor to teach in and direct the School’s Health Law Clinic.

The School has a strong preference for candidates with experience in clinical pedagogy or other law school teaching experience.
