    The University of Michigan Law School is seeking to hire a clinical faculty member with a background in tax and mediation to teach in its tax and mediation clinics.
    Students in Michigan’s Low Income Taxpayer Clinic are earning a JD or an LLM in taxation. They represent individuals with federal and state tax controversies and also run a federal tax educational outreach program aimed primarily at individuals who speak English as a second language. The LITC represents clients at all stages of tax controversy proceedings, including examination, audit reconsideration, collection due process hearings, appeals, US Tax Court trials, and collections.

    Students in our Civil Mediation Clinic earn their State of Michigan civil dispute mediator certification and mediate landlord-tenant, consumer, probate, and other general civil disputes. Students in our Domestic Relations Mediation Clinic earn their state domestic relations mediator certification and mediate all aspects of pre- and post-judgment divorce cases.

Prior clinical or other legal teaching experience (including clinic administration), and scholarship or scholarly potential are highly desirable. Candidates must hold a J.D. degree and be eligible for licensure in Michigan.
    This is a contractual appointment that can lead to Michigan’s version of clinical tenure. Clinical faculty are initially appointed to a 3-year contract.

Clinical faculty have 9-month academic year appointments and are eligible for summer financial support for case coverage, special projects and writing.

These positions will be funded under a federal contract and renewal may be possible contingent on future funding. Applications are accepted immediately and positions will remain open until filled.
    The Immigration Law Clinic provides opportunities for students to learn the practice of law in a well-supervised and academically rigorous program. The direct representation of clients is the core of the students’ experience in the clinic, and the clinic seeks to maintain a diverse and challenging docket. Though a core of immigration law content is always present, the clinic selects cases with attention to pedagogical concerns, community need, and impact to provide students with opportunities to engage as attorneys in a variety of matters. In its first three years, the Immigration Law Clinic has represented clients from 56 different countries. The docket of the Immigration Law Clinic includes removal defense for unaccompanied minors, applications for Special Immigrant Juvenile Status, U-visas, VAWA, asylum, naturalization and appellate matters before the Board of Immigration Appeals and the Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals. Through this varied casework, students build not only knowledge and skills, but also the exercise of judgment, the formation of professional identity and the development of a critical and reflective perspective on legal systems.

    In coordination with Immigration Law Clinic faculty, the attorneys will focus on the unaccompanied minor aspect of our docket at all stages, from legal screening to Know Your Rights presentations to representation before the Immigration Court and USCIS. The attorney will receive an annual salary of $40,000.00, together with generous benefits.

    Applicants must have a JD degree from an ABA-accredited law school and membership in a state bar. Preference will be given to applicants with practice experience representing noncitizens, strong academic records and writing ability, and a demonstrated commitment to public interest law. Strong preference also will be given to candidates who are fluent in Spanish. Only those selected for an interview will be contacted.
