The University of Michigan Law School is seeking to hire a visitor in its Pediatric Advocacy Clinic for the Fall Term 2013 and/or Winter Term 2014.
The Pediatric Advocacy Clinic (PAC), one of the first medical-legal partnerships in a law school clinical setting, was started in 2004. The PAC partners with a variety of health care providers in and around Ann Arbor, including the University of Michigan Children’s Hospital. It provides a range of civil legal services to low-income families, with the goal of improving the health and wellbeing of pediatric patients and their families. For example, if a disabled child is not receiving appropriate special education services in school, the PAC will represent the child’s family. The caseload consists of education cases, family law/domestic violence, public benefits, and housing cases.
The successful applicant will preferably have experience in clinical teaching in a civil litigation clinic. Familiarity with medical-legal partnerships is a plus. Candidates must hold a J.D. degree and be eligible for licensure through the State Bar of Michigan.
The application deadline is March 15, 2013.
Questions can be directed to Paul Reingold (Interim Associate Dean for Clinical Affairs) at firstname.lastname@example.org or 734-763-4319.
Applicants should send a letter of interest and résumé to:
