    Director of Civil Externship Programs: Brooklyn Law School

    Brooklyn Law School maintains one of the most expansive externship programs in the country. Over 300 students work each semester and during the summer in law offices, government agencies, judicial chambers, public interest organizations and select private sector placements. See Top Schools for Externships, National Jurist (10/28/2011). Our program is continually expanding as the Law School adds new ventures such as a DC Immersion Semester, a new third-year/post-graduate apprenticeship, more extensive summer offerings, and greater varieties of host offices.  Almost every graduating student has enrolled in at least one semester of an externship, and increasing numbers of students participate in two or three, taking advantage of the innumerable opportunities in the New York metropolitan area. 

    In light of the Law School’s longstanding commitment to clinical legal education, and its history of extensive externship programming, BLS is committed to adding instructional resources to meet the increasing needs of our existing programs and to develop new projects that expand opportunities for experiential education.

    The Law School seeks a Director of Civil Externships to join our nine full-time clinical faculty members including the Directors of other externship programs (Criminal, Judicial, Health Law and Transactional Community Development).  Working alongside these highly experienced teachers, the new Director will be responsible for teaching, administering and helping reform our existing Civil Externship Program and will have a central role in implementing the experiential learning components of several programs that are scheduled to begin in 2014 including a new clinical year option and a new center for business and entrepreneurship. The new Director also will assist in training new adjunct faculty and overseeing adjunct faculty who already teach externship seminars.  The Director will collaborate closely with the other externship Directors, the Career Center and the Office of Public Service Programs to both develop and monitor placements.  The Law School also has the tradition of encouraging clinical faculty to teach outside of the clinic, as time and other responsibilities permit.

    The Director will be a full-time faculty member with year-round responsibilities since the Law School offers an externship summer school option.  The precise terms of the appointment will depend on prior experience and qualifications and will provide job security consistent with ABA and Law School regulations. The Director will report to Associate Dean for Professional Legal Education Stacy Caplow.  The hiring process will begin in early fall with the hope that the position would be filled for the spring 2014 semester but no later than summer 2014.

    Minimum qualifications include a JD, 7 years post JD legal work, knowledge of legal practice, and admission to the Bar of any state.  A successful candidate also will have strong communication, writing and interpersonal skills, a record of involvement in professional organizations and activities, and experience showing a commitment/interest in teaching/mentoring.  Prior teaching experience will be considered a plus, as will excellent management skills.

    Please submit a letter of interest along with supporting materials (curriculum vitae, list of references, etc.) to Prof. Steven Dean, Chair of the Appointments Committee, Brooklyn Law School, 250 Joralemon Street, Brooklyn NY 11201, steven.dean@brooklaw.edu and a copy to stacy.caplow@brooklaw.edu.   Applications will be accepted on a rolling basis.

    Loyola Law School, Los Angeles, is accepting applications for the Executive Director of the Center for Juvenile Law and Policy.  The Center is a community legal clinic that brings public service, education research and advocacy together to improve the quality of legal services provided to children in the juvenile delinquency system.  The clinic provides free legal services to youth in the Los Angeles delinquency courts while providing law students with a vital skill set and the opportunity to practice in the public interest. 

    SUMMARY:

     

    The Executive Director of the Center for Juvenile Law and Policy (CJLP) is the Executive Officer of the CJLP and reports to the Dean of Loyola Law School and the Associate Dean of Clinical Programs and Experiential Learning.  The Executive Director (ED) of the CJLP supervises the Legal Director and all faculty and staff of the CJLP.  The position is a non-tenure track, clinical professor appointment, beginning January, 2014. 

     

    The ED has administrative responsibilities for:

     

    ·       Teaching and Clinical Supervision: teaching relevant academic courses, direct student clinical supervision in a live-client setting, oversight over all curriculum and evaluation;

    ·       Fundraising and Grants: overseeing grant applications, fundraising stewardship, and post award compliance;

    ·       Financial management: financial planning; operating budget; grants budget;

    ·       External Relationships: maintain institutional relations between the CJLP and Loyola Marymount University, the private and public bar of Los Angeles County, the Superior Courts of Los Angeles County, national, state and local juvenile justice stakeholders;

    ·       Advisory Board Relations: policy development and administration; 

    ·       Planning: working with school administrators, the faculty and bar to optimize the role of the CJLP in training law students and maximizing outcomes for youth in the juvenile justice system;

    ·       Organizational Management: personnel and facilities;

    ·       All other standard faculty responsibilities including grading and governance. 

     

    Traits and Characteristics:

     

    The ED should be a visionary and a strategic leader who can work effectively at the intersections of academia, juvenile and criminal policy, criminal law practice and direct legal services in a clinical legal setting.   S/He will bring an analytical, intellectual understanding of criminal legal practice and its impact on the quality of outcomes for youth. Leading candidates will be broadly informed leaders with a high level of intellectual curiosity and the capacity to encourage others to explore new terrain.

     

    The ED needs to be an interdisciplinary and creative thinker who can be innovative as well as pragmatic. The ED will be an enabler and facilitator who will have the strength of character and conviction to work with a strong, engaged faculty and a staff of highly qualified professionals. 

     

    Strong written and oral communication skills are critical to insure that the ED will be effective and persuasive in presenting the CJLP and its mission to the public. The ED will be equally adept at developing relationships with national, state and local juvenile justice advocacy organizations.  

     

    Successful candidates will have strong organizational, administrative, and financial management skills. The ED will be comfortable in a hands-on role and willing to do the essential tasks required to meet the goals of Loyola Law School and the CJLP.

     

    QUALIFICATION REQUIREMENTS:

    Candidates must be licensed to practice law in California.  Although the successful individual is expected to have solid experience in a criminal legal setting, it is also possible that candidates might come from other sectors that intersect the fields of law and policy.  Successful candidates will have experience that will demonstrate the ability to conceptualize, develop, and evaluate programs. Successful experience in general management, financial management, and strategic planning is preferred.  Because this is a teaching position, successful candidates will be comfortable lecturing on topics such as criminal law and trial advocacy, along with directly supervising law students in a clinical setting focused on juvenile delinquency. 

    EDUCATION and EXPERIENCE:

    A JD is required.  Teaching experience in an institution of higher education, while not required, is deemed advantageous. Must be able to think strategically about CJLP’s priorities and help to translate these priorities into program and staff recruitment and related fundraising activities. Salary is competitive and commensurate with experience.

     

    Loyola Law School supports the principles of diversity in hiring.  We encourage applications from women;  members of groups traditionally underrepresented in legal academia are especially welcome.

     

    Applicants should submit the following:

    Ø  A cover letter describing the applicant’s relevant experience, interest in clinical supervision and an explanation of how the position fits with the applicant’s professional goals
