    The University of California, Irvine School of Law, invites applications for a full-time clinical faculty position, to begin in July 2016.   The Law School's innovative curriculum emphasizes hands-on learning, interdisciplinary teaching and research, and public service.  To this end, the founding faculty adopted as a graduation requirement that each student participate in at least one semester of clinical education in which she assists real clients in solving actual legal problems.   The Law School has allocated 10 of its 55 faculty positions for the hiring of clinical faculty to develop six to ten core clinics.  We intend to create clinics that engage in litigation, transactional and policy work to address our clients' needs, and to provide students with a broad range of options tailored to differing career interests.  Thus far, we have hired eight full-time clinical faculty, and currently offer seven clinical courses that fulfill the clinical requirement: Appellate Litigation, Community & Economic Development, Domestic Violence, Environmental Law, Immigrant Rights, Intellectual Property Arts & Technology and International Justice.

    The person selected will either create a new clinic or co-teach in one of the Law School's existing clinics, and will assist in the planning and development of the overall clinical program.   The Law School is most interested in applicants desiring to start a new clinic in the Criminal Justice area.  We also welcome applications to create clinics in other substantive areas.  At least five years of practice experience and two years of clinical teaching experience are strongly preferred.  This position is available as an academic tenure, clinical tenure, or tenure-track (academic or clinical) position, depending on the candidate's experience and interests. Salary will be commensurate with qualifications and experience. 

    UC Irvine School of Law is the first public law school in California in nearly 50 years. Fulfilling a longstanding vision of the campus, the school opened its doors to its first class of 60 law students in fall 2009. Today, the Law School has 44 full-time faculty and 330 students. The School of Law is an innovative and visionary law school focused on training talented and passionate lawyers and driven by academic excellence, intellectual rigor and a commitment to enrich our communities through public service.

UC Irvine School of Law combines the best of a large and renowned academic institution with a collegial, supportive and friendly environment.

    The Law School continues to rank highly. In 2015, its first year of eligibility, UCI Law was ranked No. 30 by U.S. News & World Report. This was the highest debut ranking by any new law school in U.S. News history. Additionally, our clinical program ranked No. 11, our intellectual property law program ranked No. 23 (tied with UCLA Law), and we were the only top-tier school to be listed in the top 10 index for student diversity. UCI Law also had the seventh best student-faculty ratio of any law school in the country.  Additionally, our faculty continues to be ranked No. 7 in scholarly impact in a recent study; in the Law School Survey of Student Engagement, the majority of our student population rated their entire educational experience as “Excellent,” far exceeding our peer schools and the national average; and UCI Law ranked No. 3, behind Yale and Stanford law schools, and above Harvard, in a ranking of student placement in prestigious federal judicial clerkships.  UC Irvine School of Law's innovative curriculum emphasizes hands-on learning, interdisciplinary teaching and research, and public service.

    The University of California, Irvine School of Law invites applications for the position of Fellow in its International Justice Clinic (IJC). The principal aim of the fellowship is to provide an individual with mentorship and the opportunity to launch or deepen a career in human rights education and practice. The successful candidate will work on projects advancing the rights to freedom of opinion and expression under international human rights law, focusing in particular on contemporary problems of freedom of expression online. IJC supports the mandate of the United Nations Special Rapporteur  on the protection and promotion of the right to freedom of opinion and expression, currently held by Clinic Director David Kaye. As such, the Fellow will have an opportunity to help develop global strategies for internet freedom, shape thematic reports to the UN General Assembly and Human Rights Council, conduct research and supervise projects related to freedom of expression online, and develop innovative approaches to advocacy for internet freedom through international mechanisms. 

    UCI Law enjoys a dynamic clinical program already ranked highly on nationwide surveys. IJC aims to make concrete contributions to freedom of expression worldwide. It would be expected that the IJC Fellow would be a vital part not only of the IJC, but of the Clinical Program and the faculty’s intellectual life more generally. As such, the Fellow would receive strong mentoring and could expect support in terms of career development, scholarship, and advocacy.

    Job Description

    IJC involves up to twenty students annually working on human rights projects in a variety of areas. The Clinic has built up expertise working with activists, academics, technologists, diplomats, international civil servants, and policymakers around the world. Since August 2014, the Clinic has conducted a number of projects on freedom of expression, including support for the mandate’s first thematic report on encryption and anonymity technologies under human rights law; analysis of and reporting on the effectiveness of communications (allegation letters and urgent appeals) with governments; country focus projects; follow-up studies on past rapporteur’s country missions; preparation of allegation letters and urgent appeals to governments; the initiation of an initiative to engage in amicus filings in support of freedom of expression worldwide, especially in regional courts; and strategic research to determine key areas of importance related to freedom online.

    The Fellow will work on these types of issues and others that the successful candidate and the Director may identify over the course of the fellowship. This post-graduate fellowship will provide an opportunity to develop as an effective advocate and teacher while working with the Clinic to help train the next generation of leaders specializing in freedom of expression online. Therefore, one of the purposes of the fellowship is to allow the fellow to develop and practice clinical pedagogy and to supervise student projects. The fellowship would also enable the successful candidate to pursue a research agenda that is consistent with the work of the Clinic.

    Over the coming year the Fellow will be involved in, at a minimum, three substantive areas of work where internet freedom and the freedom of expression intersect: the launch of a major project focused on the human rights policies and practices of corporate actors in the Internet Communication and Technology sector; follow-up projects related to individual security online (e.g., encryption and anonymity); and engagement on issues of internet governance under human rights law. The successful candidate will also work on integrating these substantive issues into other work of the mandate.

    Requirements

    Candidates for the position must have:

    (1)  a J.D. from an A.B.A.-accredited law school and a record of exceptional academic and extracurricular success in law school;

    (2)  at least two years of experience working on human rights topics, preferably freedom of expression;

    (3)  superior written, oral and interpersonal communication skills;

    (4)  the ability to think imaginatively and critically about approaches to advancing freedom of expression in international, national, and regional spaces;

    (5)  the ability to work collaboratively with students, faculty and administrators; and

    (6)  the ability to juggle multiple competing priorities and meet firm deadlines.

    It is preferred that candidates for the position have significant experience working on human rights mechanisms at the international level or online freedom issues in a domestic or international setting. Candidates should also have a strong interest in pursuing a career in human rights education. Salary will be commensurate with qualifications and experience.

    Nature of Appointment

    The Fellow will report to the International Justice Clinic Director and work closely with an adjunct member of the faculty and IJC students. The position is a full time, twelve-month appointment with the possibility of extension for an additional year, but not to exceed 2 years total.

    Application Procedure: All applicants must submit a cover letter describing their background and interests and a curriculum vitae using UC Irvine’s on-line application system, RECRUIT, located at: https://recruit.ap.uci.edu/apply/JPF02857
