Georgetown Law – Tenure Track Position in Appellate Litigation and Civil Rights Clinics

September 17, 2015

Georgetown University Law Center invites applications from entry-level and lateral candidates for full-time tenure or tenure track clinical faculty positions expected to begin July 1, 2016. We are seeking one candidate to fill a position in our Appellate Litigation Clinic and another to fill a position in our Institute of Public Representation Clinic’s Civil Rights and Voting Rights Division

At Georgetown Law, professors dedicated to teaching in the clinical program are fully integrated into the faculty. The people selected for these positions will join our large, award-winning clinical community, and be expected to continue to develop the existing clinic caseloads and teach the clinic seminar each semester. Faculty members in the clinic are assisted by clinical fellows who are pursuing an LL.M degree in Advocacy and a support staff.

The successful applicant will have a strong commitment to promoting access to justice and a demonstrated interest in nurturing student development. We seek candidates dedicated to both practice and scholarship in a clinical setting. Candidates must demonstrate an intellectual engagement which suggests scholarly promise (for entry-level candidates) or be a proven scholar (for lateral candidates).  Successful applicants must also have subject-matter and procedural expertise in their areas of practice, and possess a positive reputation in their fields. The candidates must also have the communication, organizational, and collaborative skills necessary to direct and manage a clinic, and a commitment to teaching clinically over the long term. Finally, Georgetown values excellent teaching and a successful applicant will have the pedagogical skills, creativity, and enthusiasm needed for the academic endeavor.

Georgetown Law is committed to diversity and candidates of diverse backgrounds are encouraged to apply. Although we will be accepting applications throughout the Fall of 2015, applicants are encouraged to submit their materials as soon as possible.

Please send a resume including the names of references and a statement of interest to Wallace Mlyniec, the Chair of the Clinical Subcommittee of the Appointments Committee. Please send the material to
