    BROOKLYN LAW SCHOOL is seeking seeking applications for a Staff Attorney/Clinical Instructor in the Disability and Civil Rights Clinic: Advocating for Adults with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities. The Clinic launched in 2015 and is an “in-house” clinic that functions as a small pro bono law firm representing low-income New Yorkers and their families in a variety of civil legal matters, including housing, public benefits, access to health care, immigration, special education, parental rights, alternatives to guardianship and discrimination in access to programs and services.

Through direct legal services, affirmative litigation, public policy reform, community education and coalition building, the Disability and Civil Rights Clinic engages in various forms of advocacy to make the greatest impact on the community.  

    The mission of the Clinic is based on the principles of social justice and client-centered lawyering. With this in mind, the Clinic seeks a candidate with an awareness of how intersectional identities such as disability, race, ethnicity, religion, immigration status, class, gender identity, sexual orientation, and sex impact the lives of the clients that we serve.

The SA/CI is also responsible for working together with the Faculty Director to ensure the effective management of the Clinic. 

    Examples of cases/projects undertaken by the Clinic include guardian ad litem appointments for
    17-A guardianship proceedings; filing Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) motions in appellate court on behalf of parents with intellectual disabilities; filing administrative appeals before the Office for People with Developmental Disabilities; asserting ADA and Section 504 claims in requests for reasonable accommodations to private entities in federal court and to government agencies; representing a nonverbal immigrant in his application for asylum; representing clients in housing court; testifying before administrative agencies in response to proposed rulemaking; presenting to community groups on issues of disability rights; and preparing “Know Your Rights” materials and trainings.

    Qualifications

    The candidate should ideally possess the following: a JD and at least five years of civil legal services experience, including litigation and administrative hearings, or the equivalent; experience advocating for persons with intellectual and developmental disabilities, and in providing direct legal services in areas that include supported decision making, guardianship, family law, immigration, housing, public benefits, Medicaid, Social Security and/or related advocacy; familiarity with programs that assist persons with intellectual and developmental disabilities; desire to mentor, supervise and teach law students in an “in-house” clinical program; excellent research, writing, communication and organizational skills; and the ability to work effectively within diverse stakeholder communities.

    We seek a candidate who is creative, curious and self-motivated with an ability to anticipate issues and follow-up independently; is an exceptional strategist who can thrive in an academic environment and enjoys thinking through complex legal issues; exhibits professionalism, drive and tenacity; and has a demonstrated passion for social justice advocacy and a commitment to working with low-income communities.

Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. on April 4, 1968.  These uprisings not only spotlighted the poor living conditions plaguing the District’s largely African-American communities but the need for greater access to high-quality legal representation as well.  In response, a progressive consortium of District of Columbia law schools created D.C. Law Students in Court in order to ensure equal access to justice.

    3.       Minimum of 2-3 years of relevant work experience, preferably with direct legal services experience representing respondents in domestic violence and/or family law.  Experience supervising attorneys in a legal setting and criminal defense experience are also pluses.
    4.       Excellent interpersonal skills and ability to develop good working relationships with clients, volunteers, court personnel, and other legal service providers.
    5.       Excellent verbal and written communication skills.
    6.       Excellent organizational skills and ability to manage multiple priorities at once.
    7.       Ability to work independently and/or with minimal supervision. 

    Accountability: Reports to CPOP Director.
