The University of Michigan Law Clinical Fellows Program

November 19, 2013

The University of Michigan Law Clinical Fellows Program seeks applicants for fellowships in its Community and Economic Development and Pediatric Advocacy Clinics.  Both fellowships are two year appointments with the possibility of extension for a third year.  The Clinical Fellows Program is designed to allow attorneys to explore the possibility of a career in clinical teaching and fully support them in that endeavor.  Michigan Clinical Fellows gain valuable experience and mentoring in clinical pedagogy and in their substantive area of practice.  Their duties include clinical teaching and student supervision in conjunction with the clinic director, and participation in the operation and development of the clinic in which they teach.  Support is provided for professional development and scholarship.

Established in 1991, the Community and Economic Development Clinic provides transactional legal services to nonprofits and community organizations, primarily in Detroit.  The Pediatric Advocacy Clinic is one of the first medical-legal partnerships in a law school clinical setting.  Collaborating with health care providers in and around Ann Arbor,  the clinic provides a range of civil legal services to low-income families primarily in the fields of education, family, domestic violence and public benefits law.

Complete position postings are linked above.  We will begin reviewing applications on December 20th.  Michigan’s Clinical Fellows salaries and benefits are very competitive. The fellowships begins on July 1, 2014.
