    Texas Law has an opening for a clinical professor to direct our Actual Innocence Clinic (AIC). We will consider applicants for a full-time or a three-quarter time appointment. The ideal candidate will be available to begin in January 2017, but we will also consider applicants who cannot begin until the summer of 2017. The position is a 9-month clinical faculty appointment. The position is non-tenure track, with an initial one-year appointment followed by three-year rolling, presumptively renewable appointments. The new director will join a close community of over 25 faculty in our clinical program.

    The AIC has been offered at Texas Law since 2004. It operates independently but shares information and coordinates activities with other innocence projects in Texas. The AIC is partially funded by the Texas Legislature, but Texas Law has made a long-term commitment to the AIC and it is supported by a new endowment.

    The AIC is a six-credit, one semester, pass/fail course with approximately 10 students enrolled each semester. We expect the AIC director to:

    · Teach a weekly classroom component,

    · Meet regularly with students and supervise their work,

    · Assume primary responsibility for any litigation,

    · Fulfill reporting requirements and communication needs associated with funding sources,

    · Plan an annual event to highlight an issue/person related to the work of the AIC, and

    · Participate in meetings and activities of the clinical program.

    AIC students screen and investigate claims from Texas inmates who are not on death row and assert that they are actually innocent of the offenses for which they are incarcerated. While investigating cases, students typically interview witnesses, research cases, review transcripts, and visit inmates in prison. The director works closely with the students on all aspects of the work, including litigation activities. This position requires occasional case-related travel. More information about the AIC can be found at: https://law.utexas.edu/clinics/actual-innocence/

    Qualifications:

    1. Member of Texas Bar or ability to become licensed in Texas quickly;

    2. Eight or more years of experience in criminal defense, preferably including innocence claims;

    3. Experience supervising law students and/or junior attorneys;

    4. Experience running a law office or practice area; and

    5. Teaching experience (preferred).

    The salary for this position is $98,000 to $117,000 for nine months, depending on experience. Questions about the AIC should be directed to: Tiffany Dowling, 512/471-1317, tdowling@law.utexas.edu

    To apply: send a cover letter and resume by email before October 21, 2016, to Eden Harrington, Associate Dean for Experiential Education, 512/232-7068, eharrington@law.utexas.edu

    Questions about the hiring process should also be directed to Harrington.

    The Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law of Yeshiva University invites applications for a full-time clinical professor to direct its Human Rights and Atrocity Prevention Clinic. The successful candidate will join a robust clinical program at a law school long dedicated to experiential learning and public service.

    Cardozo’s Human Rights and Atrocity Prevention Clinic provides students with firsthand experience in human rights cases and projects that promote its core mission of increasing accountability for genocide and other mass atrocities, providing redress to victims, and preventing future atrocities around the world. Funded in part by a Holocaust claims settlement award, the Clinic is a central component of the Cardozo Law Institute in Holocaust and Human Rights (CLIHHR), which aims to strengthen human rights laws, norms, and institutions to prevent mass atrocities, protect populations during conflict, and rebuild societies in the wake of hostilities. Historically, the Clinic, often in partnership with UN agencies and other intergovernmental and non-governmental organizations, has worked on litigation and policy that advances refugee protection, represented refugees seeking asylum in the United States, and assisted in the reconstruction of post-conflict societies through work on criminal accountability, reparations, and transitional justice. Case projects have included litigation before international and regional tribunals and national courts, investigation of human rights violations, production of policy papers, strategic advocacy before national, regional, and international authorities, and empirical studies examining the impact of human rights abuses. Going forward, specific projects within the overall mission of the Clinic will depend on the vision of the new Director. The Clinic Director will be responsible for designing and overseeing all aspects of the Clinic’s teaching and practice missions. This will include supervising students and, potentially, fellows; preparing and teaching a classroom seminar; engaging with non-governmental and intergovernmental organizations; and, as appropriate, expanding the work of the Clinic into new areas. 

    The Clinic Director is expected to take an active part in faculty governance and the intellectual life of the law school. Candidates interested in also pursuing a robust scholarly agenda are encouraged to speak with the Appointments Committee about the option of a tenure-track appointment. Applicants should have a JD degree or equivalent, at least five years of relevant experience, an outstanding record of professional achievement, and a commitment to clinical teaching. Experience in clinical education is preferred. Review of candidates will begin immediately and will continue until the position is filled. Interested applicants should submit a cover letter, resume, and list of references to Chair of the Appointments Committee Professor Michael Herz, herz@yu.edu.

    The Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law is a part of Yeshiva University. Yeshiva University has a long-standing commitment to equal opportunity and affirmative action. We are committed to achieving nondiscrimination and equality of opportunity in employment and in all spheres of academic life. All University-wide decisions are based on equitable and equally applied standards of excellence.

    Columbia Law School is seeking applicants for a temporary part-time supervising attorney position for January 1 – June 30, 2017 in the Adolescent Representation Clinic (ARC). The ARC is a civil legal practice, which represents adolescents and young adults who are aging out or have aged out of foster care in a range of areas including housing and homelessness prevention; teen pregnancy and parenting; health and health benefits; income and support benefits; education, tuition and financial aid benefits; financial planning; civil rights including LGBTQ issues; job training and career planning; identity theft and credit; and inheritance.

    The ARC is being offered only in the fall 2016 semester because Prof. Jane Spinak, the director, is on leave in the spring. Fall students and TAs will have the option of continuing to represent clients and work on ARC projects in the spring under the supervision of the supervising attorney. We expect approximately 12 students and TAs to enroll in the ARC spring project program. Duties of the supervising attorney will include, but are not limited to: (1) meeting regularly with students to supervise ongoing cases and projects; (2) preparing students for negotiations, administrative hearings or court appearances; (3) accompanying and supervising students at any such hearings or any other legal work that requires a supervising attorney to be in attendance; (4) fostering the reflection and growth of the participating students, which may include several case round classes. The position will average about 10 hours per week, as student needs and the cases and projects require, and the hours of supervising and meeting with students are flexible. We expect occasional administrative hearings or court appearances but no extended hearings or trials are anticipated.

    Experienced practitioners and experiential teachers are encouraged to apply. Membership in the NYS bar is required. Diverse candidates encouraged to apply. The position may be held in addition to other employment. Salary information will be discussed with individual candidates. Please email Michelle Ellis at mellis@law.columbia.edu with a cover letter and resume.
