    • Collaborate closely with JD, MPP, PhD students and faculty on clinic projects; and

    The Friedman Fellowship program affords every Fellow the opportunity to learn about 1) clinical education and public interest lawyering through the practice of engaging in each, 2) teaching and supervising law students engaged in these activities, and 3) participating in a program of study in which these are the primary topics of inquiry. Throughout their two years in residence, Fellows can receive specific instruction and guidance in teaching and supervising clinical law students, and in writing scholarship for publication.  The program provides Fellows with mentorship and support from the clinical faculty and administration, and from the law school in general.

    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: civil legal aid practice, community economic development law, criminal defense practice, cyberviolence, domestic violence, family law litigation, prisoner re-entry issues, small business and nonprofit law, and transactional law. 

    Fellows receive an annual stipend of $60,000 and are eligible for university employment benefits, such as health insurance, tuition assistance, and other benefits related to law school affiliation.  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.

    By November 30, 2017, each applicant should send a letter of interest, a resume, a list of references, and a complete law school transcript to clinicadmin@law.gwu.edu. Questions can also be submitted to clinicadmin@law.gwu.edu.  The George Washington University Law School is an Affirmative Action/Equal Opportunity employer.

    THE UNIVERSITY OF PENNSYLVANIA LAW SCHOOL invites applicants for the position of Clinical Supervisor and Lecturer in its in-house, live client, transactional law clinic. The Entrepreneurship Legal Clinic (ELC) was founded in 1982 as one of the nation’s first legal clinics devoted to the study and practice of transactional law.

    The successful applicant will challenge ELC students to practice and hone a variety of core competencies that will be critical in their early careers (fact development, framing and analyzing legal issues, negotiating and drafting, and client counseling), but also to develop critical capacities for exercising judgment, solving problems, cultivating a professional identity, communicating (through a variety of modes) with clients and supervisors, collaborating with peers, and managing projects, people and expectations.

     Applicants should be licensed attorneys who have 4+ years of experience in a general business or transactional law practice and demonstrated acumen in business planning and structuring, negotiation, contract drafting, and community engagement.

     The successful applicant will begin no later than July 1, 2018. The position is a contract position that is annually renewable up to a maximum of 5 years. It is the Clinic’s goal and expectation that the selected candidate will receive training, mentoring, and experience in all aspects of teaching and leading a successful transactional clinic that will enable the individual to pursue a career in legal academia upon completion of service at Penn Law School including starting or directing a transactional law clinic at another law school.

    Review of candidates will begin immediately and continue until the position is filled. The University of Pennsylvania and its Law School are equal opportunity employers (http:// www.upenn.edu/affirm-action/eoaa.html).
