The University of Wisconsin Law School's Frank J. Remington Center is seeking to fill three (3) clinical instructor positions: two clinical instructors in the Legal Assistance to Institutionalized Persons Project (LAIP), and one clinical instructor in the Restorative Justice Project (RJP). The Remington Center is one of the largest and oldest clinical programs in the country, consisting of multiple prison-based projects and 16 full-time clinical faculty.
For full details about these positions, including job duties, qualifications, and application procedures, please see the following position listing (http://www.ohr.wisc.edu/pvl/pv_075739.html
In LAIP, the Center's oldest clinic, law student interns interview inmates in correctional institutions throughout Wisconsin, analyze the inmates' civil or criminal legal problems, and take steps to resolve these problems. The students enroll in LAIP as a full-time job in the summer (typically after the 1L year), and then continue in the Fall and Spring semesters for 3-4 credits each semester. Each clinical instructor in LAIP supervises 6-7 law students beginning in the summer, and then continues with those same students in the Fall and Spring.
In RJP, law student interns initiate and mediate victim-offender conferences between Wisconsin prison inmates and the victims of their crimes. This involves extensive background preparation with victims, offenders, and their families. The students enroll in RJP as a full-time job in the summer (typically after the 1L year), and then continue in the Fall and Spring semesters for 3-4 credits each semester. The RJP clinical instructor supervises 6-7 law students beginning in the summer, and then continues with those same students in the Fall and Spring. The RJP clinical instructor will also be expected to work with the Remington Center's Directors to broaden RJP's Restorative Justice work beyond victim-offender conferences in Wisconsin prisons. This effort to broaden RJP's work may include initiating outreach to organizations outside the law school with an interest in restorative justice issues, giving presentations about restorative justice issues to groups inside and outside the University, and other similar efforts. In addition, the RJP clinical instructor may also be expected to provide supervision on family law cases.
To ensure consideration, resume and letter of interest must be received by: March 8, 2013.
