UCLA Law – Clinical Teaching Fellowship

April 19, 2016

The Binder Clinical Teaching Fellowship offers opportunities for clinical teaching and research designed to prepare the fellow to seek a permanent clinical faculty position at a law school.  The fellow will be expected to teach in clinics and/or experiential courses each semester, including the first year Introduction to the Lawyer Client Relationship.  During the summer, the fellow will be fully engaged with a scholarly research project.  The law school would provide research support and faculty mentoring on legal scholarship.  In the second year, the fellow would be expected to complete the research project for publication, supervise externs, and teach or co-teach each semester.

Candidates should possess a J.D. or equivalent advanced degree; an excellent academic record; at least two years of practice experience (more preferred); admission to the California bar; excellent analytical and writing skills; an aptitude for student supervision; a collegial style; and a demonstrated interest in or potential for scholarship, particularly in the area that informs experiential learning.  In order to meet student interest and institutional need, preference may be given to candidates who are interested in teaching and writing in the areas of criminal or immigration law.  UCLA School of Law seeks candidates committed to the highest standards of scholarship and professional activities and to a campus climate that supports equality and diversity.

Applicants should apply online by submitting a cover letter discussing their qualifications and clinical teaching interests, a cv or resume, a law school transcript, contact information for three references, and a one-to two-page statement of research interests at https://recruit.apo.ucla.edu/apply/JPF02160.  To ensure full consideration, applications should be received by Monday, May 16, 2016, but will be considered thereafter until the position is filled.
