    American University, Washington College of Law is seeking applications for Practitioners-in-Residence for academic years 2012-13 and beyond in a number of our in-house clinics. American University’s in-house, “live-client” Clinical Program, comprising ten (10) in-house clinics and serving approximately 240 students per year, is respected for its leadership in scholarship, development of clinical methodology, contributions to increasing access to justice for under-served clients and breadth of offerings.

    At this time, we anticipate having openings in the following in-house clinics: international human rights clinic; domestic violence clinic; immigrant justice clinic; and disability rights law clinic.  

    The Practitioner-in-Residence Program is designed to train lawyers or entry-level clinicians interested in becoming clinical teachers in the practice and theory of clinical legal education.  Many graduates of the Practitioners-in-Residence program have gone on to tenure-track teaching positions at other law schools.  This is a term position.  Practitioners can serve in these positions for up to three (3) years.  Practitioners supervise student casework, co-teach weekly clinic seminars and case rounds, and engage in course planning and preparation with the clinic’s tenured faculty. They also teach a course outside of the clinical curriculum.  The Practitioner-in-Residence Program provides full-year training in clinical theory and methodology and a writing workshop designed to assist Practitioners in the development of their clinical and doctrinal scholarship.

    Minimum qualifications include a JD degree, outstanding academic record, three years’ experience as a lawyer and membership in a state bar. Salary and benefits are competitive. American University is an EEO\AA employer committed to a diverse faculty, staff and student body.
