Duke Law Clinic Opening

December 12, 2016

Duke University School of Law seeks a transactional attorney to supervise students and direct activities in the Law School’s Start-Up Ventures Clinic or Community Enterprise Clinic. We will consider candidates who seek a full-time position as a Visiting Clinical Professor, Clinical Professor, or Professor of the Practice and who are willing to actively engage in the Law School’s broader programs in law and entrepreneurship, social entrepreneurship, and community development law. Qualified applicants may be individuals currently teaching in a transactional clinic or practicing attorneys with relevant subject matter expertise.

In addition to supervising students and directing various programs within our transactional clinics, the faculty member will have the opportunity to pursue other interests, such as non-clinical teaching in Duke Law’s business law curriculum and/or related research. The precise contours of the position will be tailored to the strengths and interests of the successful applicant and formalized with his or her input. In addition to a strong record of or demonstrated potential for clinical teaching, the ideal candidate will offer:

(1)               Broad-based substantive legal experience in the areas of entrepreneurship, intellectual property, community economic development law, and social enterprise;

(2)               A deep commitment to access to justice that is consistent with the ethos of the Duke Law clinics, as well as a creativity to deploy business/transactional law skills toward this end;

(3)               Excellent teaching and mentoring skills; and

(4)               The ability and willingness to build connections with both a campus and a local community that have adopted the promotion of entrepreneurship and social entrepreneurship as priorities.

All applicants must either be members of the North Carolina Bar or be eligible for admission and willing to become a member. Duke University is an equal opportunity/affirmative action employer. Persons of color and women are strongly encouraged to apply.

Interested applicants should submit a letter of interest and résumé via email to Kristin Triebel at kristin.triebel@law.duke.edu.

All applications must be received no later than midnight on Thursday, December 15, 2016.
