    Suffolk University Law School in Boston invites applications for a tenure-track clinical faculty member to direct its Intellectual Property and Entrepreneurship Clinic (the “IPEC”) starting in the 2016-2017 academic year.  We seek candidates with strong academic records and a demonstrated commitment to excellence in teaching and scholarship.  Prior experience with clinical teaching is preferred, though not required.  Applicants must either be a member of the Massachusetts bar or eligible for admission to practice in Massachusetts.

    The IPEC is a dynamic inter-disciplinary clinic that collaborates regularly with Suffolk’s Sawyer Business School. It provides free legal services to underserved clients with limited resources on issues relating to new and emerging businesses, with a focus on intellectual property (copyrights, trademarks, patents, and trade secrets). Law students working under the direction of the clinic director provide a broad range of intellectual property and transactional services. Clients include entrepreneurs, inventors, scientists, designers, software developers, online publishers, cloud service providers, artists, authors, filmmakers and musicians, who may be individuals, for-profit businesses, or nonprofits. This innovative clinic provides students with the hands-on, practical experience needed to navigate the rapidly evolving fields of intellectual property and entrepreneurship. With direct supervision, IPEC students learn best practices for the fundamental skills of counseling, advocacy and transactional practice. At the same time, IPEC helps entrepreneurs and artists protect and commercialize their IP and other assets.

    The ideal candidate for this position will be a self-motivated individual who will “grow” the clinic by developing relationships with alumni, other members of the academy and external entities. In addition to teaching a full-year clinic, all tenure-track clinical faculty teach one non-clinical course that relates to the faculty member’s clinical work.   

    The IPEC is one of nine in-house clinics in the Clinical Programs. It is also part of the Intellectual Property Concentration, which integrates doctrinal and experiential offerings in intellectual property. Both the Clinical Program and the Intellectual Property Concentration are nationally ranked. 

    The Law School particularly encourages applications from women, minorities, and others whose backgrounds will contribute to the diversity of the faculty.  To apply, contact Professor and Clinical Programs Committee Co-Chair Joseph Glannon (jglannon@suffolk.edu), Suffolk University Law School, 120 Tremont Street, Boston, MA 02108-4977.  Suffolk University is an equal opportunity employer.

    UMass Law is committed to graduating justice-centered lawyers prepared to practice responsibly and creatively. The school’s two in-house clinics were developed to meet critical community needs. Because approximately a quarter of each incoming class is admitted into our Public Interest Law Fellowship program, there is much energy for using the law to increase access to justice. Because UMass Law is dedicated to creating access to legal education for groups underrepresented in the profession, our student body has an appreciation for the disparities in access to justice, the difference law can make, and the importance of understanding how the law operates in the real world for real people. We may hire a tenure-track faculty member who will serve as in-house clinic director. While we have a preference to continue the work of our Community Development Clinic, which provides representation to entrepreneurial businesses in the South Coast region, we are open to modification of the type of work in which our Community Development Clinic engages. The faculty director will also teach one section of a doctrinal course each semester, likely Business Organizations. UMass Law is located on the South Coast of Massachusetts, about one hour from Boston and thirty minutes from Providence and Cape Cod. As the only public law school in Massachusetts, UMass is poised to become a leader in stewarding justice in the state, and the new tenure-track clinic director will be an integral part of that growth.

    Qualifications: J.D., licensed in Massachusetts within one year of hire. Five years’ combined law practice and law clinic experience. To apply, please submit a letter and resume electronically to Associate Dean Eric Mitnick (emitnick@umassd.edu). The University of Massachusetts reserves the right to conduct background checks on potential employees. UMass Dartmouth is an Affirmative Action, Equal Opportunity, Title IX Employer.
