American University Washington College of Law seeks applications for a tenure-track faculty position as director of its International Human Rights Law Clinic (IHRLC).  Washington College of Law’s in-house, live-client Clinical Program is nationally recognized for its leadership in scholarship, development of clinical methodology, full integration of clinicians and non-clinicians in institutional governance and status, contributions to increasing access to justice for under-served clients and breadth of clinical offerings.  The law school also is widely known for its leadership in human rights teaching, scholarship and advocacy, and the director of the IHRLC is a key participant in these activities.

The director of the International Human Rights Clinic will be responsible for directing the clinic; teaching in the year-long clinic (in the clinic seminar, rounds, and case supervision), along with the IHRLC’s practitioner-in-residence; and teaching one course per year outside of the clinic.

Minimum qualifications include a J.D. degree, outstanding academic record, five years’ experience as a lawyer, including membership in a state bar, and a commitment to clinical teaching, institutional and professional service, and producing legal scholarship.
