    The Civil Rights section and Voting Rights Institute of the Institute for Public Representation (IPR) invites applications for the two-year graduate fellow/staff attorney position to start in August 2017.

    What is IPR?

    IPR is a public interest law firm and law school clinic founded by Georgetown University Law Center in 1971. IPR serves as counsel for groups and individuals who are unable to obtain effective legal representation on issues of broad public importance. IPR provides third-year law students an opportunity to develop a wide range of lawyering skills by working on real cases under the supervision of faculty members and fellows (also referred to as staff attorneys). IPR’s work is divided into three sections: civil rights, environmental law, and communications law and policy. Each section is directed by a faculty member with the assistance of graduate fellows.

    IPR’s Civil Rights Section

    The faculty member responsible for the civil rights section of IPR is Professor Aderson Francois. Professor Francois joined the faculty in fall 2016 after serving as director for the Civil Rights Clinic at Howard University School of Law.

    IPR’s civil rights section operates as a public interest law firm, representing individual clients and other public interest organizations, primarily in the areas of discrimination and constitutional rights, workplace fairness, and open government.

    Beginning fall of 2016, the civil rights section partnered with the Campaign Legal Center and the American Constitution Society to launch a Voting Rights Institute, which engages in trial and appellate litigation to ensure equal access to voting rights.

    Students who join the clinic will interview clients, develop case theories, draft and file complaints in state and federal courts, conduct discovery, engage in motions practice, and prepare appeals. Students also file FOIA requests and analyze responsive documents, and work in coalition with other public interest organizations to develop impact cases.

    Recent projects include:

    • Litigating a complex federal Freedom of Information Act suit against the Department of Defense and the CIA on behalf of researchers seeking records on “enhanced interrogation” used in the War on Terror;
    • Litigating wage theft claims against private entities and government contractors on behalf of employees denied fair wages or overtime;
    • Litigating retaliation claims on behalf of employees terminated for asserting their rights under FLSA and DC Wage and Hour law;
    • Litigating voter suppression case in Georgia and felon disenfranchisement cases in Florida and Alabama;
    • Litigating on behalf of an individual whose employer improperly denied her the lactation breaks she was entitled to under state and federal law;
    • Litigating on behalf of an individual whose employer improperly denied her disability and pregnancy accommodations, discriminated against her on account of her national origin, and illegally assessed fees against her in connection with her resignation; 
    • Filing amicus briefs in two Supreme Court cases – one concerning issues of habeas corpus relief, the other concerning municipal standing under the Fair Housing Act; 
    • Preparing and arguing two appeals in federal court, one in the DC Circuit and one in the Fifth Circuit; and 
    For more detailed information about our work, applicants should review our annual reports.

    What do the Graduate Fellows/Staff Attorneys do?

    Fellows are responsible for day-to-day supervision of students and work closely with students on improving their lawyering skills, especially legal writing. In the civil rights section, the fellow has principal responsibility for about half of the docket and supervises all facets of the litigation. Much of the fellow’s time is spent guiding students in legal and factual research, reviewing student drafts, making suggestions for improvement, and preparing the students for oral presentations. In recent years, fellows have worked on all phases of litigation, including taking depositions, handling evidentiary hearings, and briefing cases before federal district courts, courts of appeals, and the U.S. Supreme Court. Fellows also play a key role in case development and in planning other IPR activities.

    Fellows participate in case rounds and assist in teaching seminars on litigation practice and substantive law. 

    Past fellows have emphasized that the IPR experience is unique in several respects:

    First, the fellows work on interesting, often cutting-edge litigation. In light of our broad agenda, we have leeway to develop cases that present unique educational opportunities for students and fellows and have a significant impact on the law.

    Second, fellows assume substantial responsibility and generally play a more important role in the decision making process than do their contemporaries in other types of law practice. They work on a variety of cases in different stages of the litigation process and gain a broad understanding of how litigation works, from interviewing a potential client through appealing to the Supreme Court. Fellows also work closely with other IPR fellows and other public interest organizations, meeting other lawyers involved in public interest law and seeing how their organizations function.

    Third, fellows work closely with a full-time faculty member who has substantial litigation experience and expertise. As part of the Georgetown Law community, fellows are encouraged to attend seminars, workshops, and programs both on and off campus.

    Georgetown provides substantial support and guidance for fellows interested in pursuing academic scholarship or careers.

    What qualifications are we looking for?

    Typically, IPR fellows have had substantial experience as practicing lawyers. On occasion, we have hired recent law school graduates or graduates just completing a judicial clerkship. We are looking for applicants who demonstrate

    • a commitment to public interest law 
    • excellent writing and communication skills
    • an interest in clinical legal education
    • experience or strong interest in litigation

    Fellows must be admitted to the District of Columbia Bar or take immediate steps to apply for membership (through examination or reciprocity) after being accepted for the position.

    Pay and other benefits

    The annual stipend for the position will be approximately $53,500, plus an opportunity to participate in group health insurance and other benefits, including unlimited free access to a state-of-the-art, on-site fitness center. The fellowship will start in August 2017 and end in August 2019. Fellows are awarded an L.L.M. in Advocacy at the completion of the fellowship. Fellows are considered full-time students and may qualify for deferment of student loans.

    How to apply

    Applicants should submit

    • a résumé 
    • a law school transcript
    • a list of references, including contact information
    • a recent legal writing sample of any length that represents the applicant’s most challenging legal work (The writing sample should not be collaborative work or a piece significantly edited by someone else.)
    • a brief statement (no longer than one page, single-spaced) explaining the applicant’s interest in the position

    Send your application materials in a PDF file attached to an email to IPR-Civil Rights Clinic Office Manager, Maia Tucker, at

    We will consider applications until December 20, 2016. Although IPR will not pay candidates’ travel expenses, we will try to arrange interviews at a time convenient for the candidate.

    Fordham Law is seeking to hire a Senior Director to oversee its Entrepreneurial Law Program and supervise an innovative new Entrepreneurial Law Clinic (ELC).

    In the past decade, New York City has become a significant national locus for entrepreneurship, with the scale of activity accelerating. Start-up companies in the region are capitalizing on the city’s concentration of finance, professional services, media, entertainment, and fashion, as well as a burgeoning “maker” community, among other sectors. Social entrepreneurship as well as entrepreneurship in low-income communities are also important parts of the burgeoning New York ecosystem.

    In recognition of this growing trend, Fordham Law School has built a focused entrepreneurial law curriculum, leveraging the school’s core strengths in business, corporate, and finance, as well as intellectual property, information law, and technology. The curriculum now includes courses on representing start-up companies, the law of venture capital, and IP transactions in later-stage companies, among others. At the same time, the Law School has been developing a larger program focused on entrepreneurship, with an alumni Entrepreneurial Law Advisory Committee, a popular student Entrepreneurial Law Society, and public programming under the auspices of the school’s Corporate Law Center. The Law School’s entrepreneurial law program is part of a university-wide interdisciplinary effort that includes Fordham’s Gabelli School of Business, Fordham’s Urban Studies Program, and others.

    The Law School now seeks to significantly elevate this effortand fill an important curricular needthrough the hiring of a Senior Director.

    The primary responsibility of the Senior Director will be to help establish and teach the ELC, supervising students in providing pro bono legal services to early-stage start-up companies. The specific legal questions any given client could present might range from issues of corporate law to IP and licensing, to tax and employment, as well as finance. Matters could include entity formation, drafting shareholder and operating agreements, negotiating investment or loan agreements, advising on how to structure internal compensation structures for founders, drafting vendor or services agreements, and many other basic legal needs for start-up companies. Representing a mix of traditional start-ups as well as social enterprises, ELC students will be exposed to individual transactional questions and the role of in-house counsel dealing with a range of legal issues that interrelate with business objectives and the attendant representational and ethical concerns those intertwined issues raise.

    Additionally, the ELC can provide an opportunity for interdisciplinary education, potentially drawing on graduate students from Fordham’s Gabelli School of Business to help clients develop business plans, conduct market research, explore financing options, establish basic accounting structures, and bring their expertise to bear in other ways. Working with the Senior Director, the ELC will also be designed to draw on a network of cooperating attorneys to provide additional mentoring and specialized advice to the ELC and its clients.

    The ELC will be housed in Lincoln Square Legal Services, Inc. (LSLS), Fordham’s in-house law firm. LSLS has a staff of fourteen attorneys and a number of other professionals working across ten practice areas that include community economic development, consumer protection, civil rights, criminal defense, family advocacy, federal tax, immigrant rights, intellectual property and information law, legislative and policy advocacy, and securities law. ELC will find synergies across a number of the firm’s other practice areas.

    Beyond clinical supervision, the Senior Director will also work to extend the Law School’s visibility and impact among entrepreneurs and the larger Fordham community. Helping to build the entrepreneurial law program will include forging partnerships with incubators, accelerators, venture capital firms, and others working in New York’s entrepreneurial ecosystem. In addition, the Senior Director will help develop public programming on entrepreneurship and the law, work with the student Entrepreneurial Law Society, and take other steps to elevate this important part of Fordham’s mission. In short, the Senior Director will need to be both an educator of entrepreneurship in action and an entrepreneur themselves to unlock the potential of this growing program.

    Review of applications will begin immediately and the position will remain open until filled.


    • JD or equivalent degree;
    • Five years of demonstrated experience working with start-up companies or related experience at the intersection of legal practice and entrepreneurship; and
    • Excellent organizational and communication skills.

    Salary will be commensurate with experience.

    Please send a cover letter and resume to Darin Neely, Assistant Dean, Office of Administration, Fordham University School of Law, Please, no calls. For questions about the position, please contact Nestor Davidson, Associate Dean for Academic Affairs, Fordham University School of Law,

    Fordham University is committed to excellence through diversity and welcomes candidates of all backgrounds. Fordham Law School is an Equal Opportunity employer.
