    Clinical Staff Attorney/Practitioner-in-Residence Positions:
    Brooklyn Law School

    Brooklyn Law School is a nationally recognized leader in professional education.1 To focus, enhance and grow this expertise, the Law School has founded the Center for Urban Business Entrepreneurship (CUBE) to prepare and enable law students to advise and participate in entrepreneurial ventures for start-up and growing business and not-for-profit organizations.
    The Law School seeks two experienced lawyers to serve as Staff Attorneys or Practitioners-in-Residence (depending on experience) with three BLS clinics that emphasize subjects and skills that overlap with the mission of CUBE. Based on individual substantive interests and skills, one attorney will work primarily with the Brooklyn Law Incubator and Policy Clinic and one attorney will work primarily with two real estate and community oriented clinics.

    - The Brooklyn Law Incubator and Policy Clinic (BLIP) functions like a law firm that represents Internet, new media, communications and other tech entrepreneurs and innovators on both business and policy advocacy.

    - The Community Development Clinic represents community organizations that wish to help shape the future of Brooklyn neighborhoods going through dramatic transformation as industrial sites adapt to changes in the local and global economy and new residential and commercial projects emerge.

    - The Corporate and Real Estate Clinic offers students the unique experience of acting as “house counsel” in representing low-income cooperative boards of directors in transactions.

    Working alongside the Executive Director of CUBE and the Directors of each of these clinics, the attorneys will expand and enhance the reach of these clinical programs to allow more students to participate in effectively representing a greater number of clients in an expanded range of subjects. In this role, the attorneys will participate in all activities including course planning, curriculum development, teaching, supervising and mentoring law students, representing clients, clinic administration, and community education, engagement and outreach.
    1 Brooklyn Law School’s extensive network of clinics, externships and simulation courses have earned it a ranking as the sixth best law school in the country in this area. See Best Schools for Practical Training, National Jurist (March 2014). Clinical training is offered through more than 30 different programs that allow over 300 students each semester to participate in hands-on live-client representation in real-world settings in a wide variety of areas. Over 90% of the students in recent graduating classes earned academic credit from at least one clinical course.
    The attorneys will also work with CUBE’s Executive Director in developing and implementing on and off-campus programs involving practical experience, scholarship and policy analysis and will coordinate with other Law School initiatives for professional education.

    Each position offered is a 12-month contract position that may be renewable annually. The precise terms of the appointment will depend on prior experience and qualifications. Salary will be competitive.

    Minimum qualifications include a JD, admission to the Bar of the State of New York or ability to waive into the New York State Bar, knowledge of legal practice and four years of post-JD legal work with experience in areas addressed by the clinics including transactions and work with new ventures. A successful candidate also will have strong communication, writing and interpersonal skills, a record of involvement in professional organizations and activities, and experience showing a commitment/interest in teaching/mentoring and in working with creative and innovative projects and organizations. Prior teaching experience will be considered a plus, as will excellent management skills.
    Please submit a letter of interest along with supporting materials (curriculum vitae; list of references) to Paul A. Gangsei, Executive Director of the Center for Urban Business Entrepreneurship, Brooklyn Law School, 250 Joralemon Street, Brooklyn NY 11201, paul.gangsei@brooklaw.edu and a copy to Professor Stacy Caplow, Associate Dean for Professional Legal Education, stacy.caplow@brooklaw.edu. The hiring process will begin immediately with the expectation that the positions will be filled for the Fall 2014 semester. Applications will be accepted on a rolling basis and review of candidates will continue until the positions are filled. Brooklyn Law School is an affirmative action/equal opportunity employer.

    4/21/14
    2 As the only law school in Brooklyn and with a location in the heart of Brooklyn’s “Tech Triangle” (DUMBO, the Brooklyn Navy Yard and MetroTech Center), Brooklyn Law School is uniquely positioned to draw on and serve one of the most exciting urban areas in the country for emerging businesses.
