The University of Michigan Law Clinical Fellows Program seeks applicants for a fellowship in its Community and Economic Development Clinic (CEDC). This is a two year appointment with a 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 a clinic director, and participation in the operation and development of the clinic in which they teach. Support is provided for personal and professional development and scholarship. 

The CEDC provides transactional legal services to nonprofit and community organizations, social enterprises, and neighborhood-based businesses and entrepreneurs in Detroit and the metro Detroit area. The Clinic works with both start-up and established clients. New organizations seek assistance in formation, governance, tax and regulatory compliance. More established organizations seeks the CEDC’s assistance to accommodate their organizations’ and programs’ growth: draft and negotiate contract and leases; create worker cooperatives and social enterprises; counsel regarding land use, permits and other regulations; provide tax advice on income-generating activities; advise on employment issues; counsel on risk management; and research and advise on intellectual property issues.

The fellow will work with entrepreneurs and small businesses and partner with faculty at the Ross School of Business, the Stamps School of Art and Design, and the School of Computer Science and Engineering, as well as other schools and departments, through the Detroit Neighborhood Entrepreneurs Project, a new initiative in the CEDC supported by the JP Morgan Chase Foundation.

The ideal applicant will have a minimum of 3 years experience in at least one of the CEDC’s core areas of practice, a strong interest in clinical teaching, a demonstrated commitment to engage in public interest lawyering through transactional work for nonprofit and community organizations, and potential for scholarship and success as a clinical teacher. Candidates must hold a J.D. degree and be eligible for licensure in Michigan. Michigan’s Clinical Fellows salaries and benefits are very competitive. The fellowship begins in July, 2018.

Questions can be directed to Associate Dean David Santacroce at dasanta@umich.edu or 734-763-4319. We will begin reviewing applications on February 12, 2018, but will accept applications until the position is filled. Applicants shouldsend a letter of interest and résumé to:

Duke University School of Law has an opening for a Clinical Teaching Fellow in our new Clinical Teaching Fellows Program. This may be either a two or three year appointment and is intended to provide training, support and professional development for young lawyers with a demonstrated interest in exploring a career in clinical teaching.   The relevant information is set out below.

We will consider candidates with an interest in teaching in any of our existing clinics, but particular areas of opportunity exist within our two transactional clinics, the Community Enterprise Clinic and the Start-Up Ventures Clinic. The ideal candidate will have at least two-years of practice experience, a demonstrated interest in clinical teaching and practice, and be prepared to work with our current clinical faculty to supervise students, help teach the applicable clinic seminar, and be engaged in other aspects of the Clinical Program.

(3) Demonstrated potential for excellence in clinical teaching and mentoring; and
