    The University of Denver College of Law announces our new Master of Laws (LL.M.) Clinical Teaching Fellowship Program, which offers attorneys the opportunity to gain extensive practice in law school clinical teaching under the supervision of experienced clinical faculty. Fellows also learn about academic legal scholarship and, with the assistance of a faculty mentor, produce publishable-quality scholarship during their residence. Fellows receive an annual stipend and are awarded an LL.M. upon their successful completion of the fellowship. It is the explicit goal of the fellowship to prepare Fellows for a career in clinical legal education.

    Fellows enroll in a three-year program during which they are in residence at one of Denver Law’s five in-house clinics: the Civil Litigation Clinic, the Civil Rights Clinic, the Community Economic Development Clinic, the Criminal Defense Clinic, and the Environmental Law Clinic. Fellows will directly supervise J.D. students enrolled in the clinics, first as co-supervisors with clinic faculty and then on their own. Fellows also assist in teaching clinic seminars and perform work on their own cases or other legal matters. Additionally, Fellows participate in a clinical pedagogy seminar and other activities designed to support an interest in clinical teaching and legal education. In addition to the above requirements, to complete the degree, the Fellow must write a law review article of publishable quality.

    Each of Denver Law’s five clinics will offer one clinical teaching fellowship that will commence in the summer of 2015. Clinical Fellows receive an annual stipend of $45,000, health and dental benefits, and all tuition and fees in the LL.M. program. As full-time students, teaching fellows also may qualify for deferment of their student loans. In addition, teaching fellows may be eligible for loan repayment assistance from their law schools. Fellows will be integrated into the intellectual life of the law school and the larger University. They are invited to attend faculty workshops and participate in mentoring sessions.

    Qualifications: J.D. or equivalent; minimum 3 years of practice experience in the relevant area of law; excellent written and oral communication skills; strong interest in clinical teaching. Fellows must be members of the Colorado Bar or willing to petition for admission prior to the start date of the fellowship (Colorado permits lawyers teaching in a clinical program to waive into the Bar).

    How to apply: To apply for a fellowship, please submit the following:

    Resume
    List of references
    Statement of interest of no more than two pages. The statement should address a) why you are interested in this fellowship; b) what you can contribute to the clinic; c) your experience with the area(s) of law in which the clinic practices and with public interest/social justice work; d) your professional or career goals for the next five or ten years; and e) anything else you consider pertinent.
    Please note: If you are applying for a fellowship in the Civil Rights Clinic or the Criminal Defense Clinic, please also submit a writing sample that represents recent, challenging legal work. The writing sample should not be a collaborative work or a document significantly edited by someone else.

    Please send all application materials via email to Laurie Saraceno at lsaraceno@law.du.edu. Please use “LL.M. Application” as the subject line.

    The Jacob Burns Community Legal Clinics of The George Washington University
    Law School are accepting additional applications for our graduate clinical fellowship
    program for the academic years of 2015-17. In recognition of the generous gift of
    Philip Friedman, the Fellows are known as Friedman Fellows. Friedman
    Fellows obtain LL.M. degrees while examining and engaging in clinical legal
    education and public interest law.

    The 2015-17 Friedman Fellowships begin in the summer of 2015. Each
    fellowship is affiliated with a specific law school clinic. Although the
    various clinics provide the fellows diverse responsibilities and
    experiences, each provides the Fellow with opportunities to co-teach and
    co-supervise, alongside experienced clinical faculty, the law students
    enrolled in the clinic.

    The Friedman Fellowship program enables every Fellow to learn about
    clinical education and public interest lawyering through the practice of
    engaging in each, teaching and supervising law students engaged in these
    endeavors, and participating in a program of study in which these are the
    primary topics of inquiry. In the process, Fellows receive mentorship and
    support from the clinical faculty and administration, and the law school in
    general.

    Fellows enroll in two year-long courses in Clinical Teaching and
    Scholarship taught by the Associate Dean for Clinical Affairs and other
    clinical faculty. As part of this course sequence, Fellows receive
    specific instruction and guidance in teaching and supervising law students,
    and in writing a publishable thesis. Fellows also enroll part-time in
    other law school classes, and receive an LL.M. degree upon completion of
    the class and thesis requirements of the LL.M. program.

    We are currently seeking applications from candidates with strong academic,
    clinical, and lawyering experience. We are especially interested in
    applications from lawyers with background and experience in the following
    areas: administrative law, appellate practice, community economic
    development law, civil legal aid practice, criminal defense practice,
    litigation, prisoner re-entry issues, and transactional law. Fellows
    receive an annual stipend between $45,000 and $50,000, tuition remission
    for the LL.M. program, health insurance and other benefits, and possible
    student loan deferment. Fellows must be members of a state bar. Candidates
    who are not members of the D.C. Bar must be eligible for immediate waiver
    into the D.C. Bar.

    Each applicant should send a letter of interest, a resume, a list of
    references, and a complete law school transcript by February 2, 2015 to
    Associate Dean Phyllis Goldfarb. The preferred submission method is by
    email to 
    clinicadmin@law.gwu.edu. In the alternative, applications can be
    mailed to the Jacob Burns Community Legal Clinics c/o Executive Assistant
    Norma Lamont, The George Washington University Law School, 2000 G St. NW,
    Washington, DC 20052. The George Washington University Law School is an
    Affirmative Action/Equal Opportunity employer. The University undertakes
    special efforts to employ a diverse workforce.
