Yale Law School seeks applications for a Clinical Fellowship

April 28, 2011

Yale Law School seeks applications for a Clinical Fellowship for a one-year position beginning on July 1, 2011 with a possible second year.  The Fellowship is designed for lawyers with at least five years of practice who are interested in preparing for a career in law school clinical teaching.  The Fellow will work with the Community and Economic Development (CED) Clinic and will be supervised by CED faculty members Ray Brescia and Robin Golden.   The primary responsibilities include supervising students as they represent clients in a wide range of areas (from community development banking to education reform), teaching classes, and working on one’s own scholarship.   This year we are looking for a Fellow with particular experience in community development financial institutions, but will consider applicants who have other relevant experience. Fellows will be allowed sufficient time, resources and assistance during the year to engage in research and writing. All work will be conducted with the assistance of the clinical faculty.  Visit our website at http://www.law.yale.edu/academics/Ludwig.htm to learn more about the CED Clinic. Candidates must be able to work both independently and as part of a team, and must possess strong written and oral communication skills.   In addition to a stipend in the range of $48,500 to $58,500 depending on experience, Fellows receive health benefits and access to university facilities.  Send (or email) a resume, cover letter, writing sample, and names, addresses and telephone numbers of three references by May 6, 2011 to: Kathryn Jannke, Office Manager, The Jerome N. Frank Legal Services Organization, P.O. Box 209090, New Haven, CT 06520-9090; telephone: (203) 432-4800; fax: (203) 432-1426; or email Kathryn Jannke: kathryn.jannke@yale.edu.
