    The Mills Legal Clinic of Stanford Law School invites applicants for the staff attorney position with its Organizations and Transactions Clinic (“O&T”). The staff attorney will join the thriving clinical community at Stanford Law School where, together with the clinical faculty and staff, he or she will represent clients and train law students at one of the country’s leading institutions for legal scholarship and education.
     
    O&T is one of ten clinics comprising the Mills Legal Clinic. The Stanford clinical program is unique in that students participate in a clinic on a full-time basis; the clinic is the only course a student takes during the term of enrollment. The Mills Legal Clinic occupies an entire floor in an award-winning central campus building opened in summer 2012.
     
    O&T focuses on introducing students to the disciplines and materials of corporate practice. The clinic provides students with opportunities to engage in corporate and transactional work for established Northern California nonprofit organizations. Clients typically generate $500,000 - $10 million or more in annual revenues. O&T targets organizations working in sustainable agriculture, food security and food system reform, human services, and the education, youth development, and economic empowerment fields. The clinic currently has clients in eleven Northern California counties.
     
    O&T’s practice centers on corporate governance, contract and risk management matters. Students provide governance advice and documents, draft contract and management materials, assist with transactions, and analyze operating programs and contractual arrangements. Students generally work in two-person teams and represent
    3 - 4 clients during the term. Clinic points of emphasis include close reading, methodical analysis, effective collaboration, efficient writing, and crisp execution. O&T also includes a twice-weekly seminar. Seminar sessions focus on client projects and orientation to corporate practice. Classes include review of contract, transaction management, disclosure, and other documents encountered in a sophisticated commercial practice. Guest speakers, including executives and general counsels, regularly join the class. As part of introduction to practice, students explore how lawyers can serve community as well as commercial organizations through pro bono, board service, and other activities.
     
    The staff attorney participates in all activities of the clinic. The attorney engages in client development, supervision of students, and independent client representation. He or she will have an opportunity to develop expertise in specific areas and build a practice. The attorney also assists the director with curriculum design, development of teaching materials, classroom teaching, student evaluation, and clinic operations.
     
    Mills Legal Clinic attorneys are part of the intellectual community within the clinical program and the Law School and university at large. For example, the staff attorney will be invited to attend weekly faculty workshops at which scholars from Stanford and throughout the world present research and works in progress. The clinic also provides resources for its lawyers to participate in continuing education and other professional development activities.
     
    Applicants for the staff attorney position must have at least three years practice experience in sophisticated transactional work in a law firm or in-house setting. Applicants must possess strong academic credentials and the organizational and team skills essential to transactional practice and clinic management. Successful teaching and student supervision experience or the demonstrated potential for such teaching and supervision are desirable but not required. Exposure to intellectual property, nonprofit and real estate law, and service as a board member, employee, or volunteer at a nonprofit organization or business, are additional plus factors.
     
    The salary is based on a formula that is competitive with similar positions.
     
    Applicants should submit resumes through http://jobs.stanford.edu, referencing job number 47681.  Applications will be considered on a rolling basis until the position is filled.
     
    In addition, applicants should send the following materials to the addresses below:
     
    a statement no longer than one page describing: (i) prior experience in corporate and transactional practice; (ii) other relevant experience; and (iii) information relevant to the applicant's interest and potential for clinical supervision and teaching
     
    a resume
     
    a list of at least three references
     
    a complete law school transcript
     
    Applicants may send the materials electronically to Judy Gielniak, the Mills Legal Clinic administrative manager, at jgielniak@law.stanford.edu.  Hard copies may be sent to:
