The University of Michigan Law Clinical Fellows Program seeks applicants for a fellowship in its Veterans Legal Clinic. 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 Veterans Legal Clinic (VLC) handles legal matters for veterans and, in some instances, their immediate families, in a broad array of civil legal matters. These matters include, but are not limited to, housing law, family law, consumer disputes, financial exploitation, veterans and public benefits, and military discharge upgrades to clients.

The successful applicant will have a minimum of 3 years’ experience in civil litigation, a strong interest in clinical teaching, a demonstrated commitment to public interest lawyering, and potential for scholarship and success as a clinical teacher.  Experience with the veterans community and/or issues is a plus. 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.

The National Veterans Legal Services Program (NVLSP) has worked since 1980 to ensure that our nation’s 25 million veterans and active duty personnel receive the government benefits to which they are entitled. NVLSP’s Lawyers Serving Warriors® (LSW) Pro Bono Program assists veterans with disability claims including challenges to VA denials of service-connection for PTSD due to military sexual trauma, applications for combat related special compensation, requests for medical retirement, discharge upgrades, and claims before the Board of Veterans’ Appeals.

The volunteer will work closely with LSW attorneys to monitor case developments and ensure client readiness for representation. The position will involve extensive contact with Veteran clients and pro bono lawyers and will provide an introduction to the fundamentals of military disability law.  The position is available immediately and can continue into the fall.
