The Community Justice Project hires one individual to serve as a clinical teaching fellow and supervising attorney each year, for a two-year term. Fellows have several areas of responsibility, with an increasing role as the fellowship progresses.
First, fellows supervise students in direct representation cases, as co-supervisors with experienced fellows and faculty and then on their own. Second, fellows co-supervise one or more Project Teams of students. Third, the fellows and faculty share responsibility for teaching seminar sessions. Fourth, fellows share in the administrative and case handling responsibilities of the clinic. Finally, fellows participate in a clinical pedagogy seminar and other activities designed to support an interest in clinical teaching and legal education.
It is the explicit goal of the fellowship to prepare fellows for a career in clinical legal education.
The Community Justice Project will not be hiring until Fall 2014 for Fall 2015 fellowships. The application timeline for Fall 2015 fellowships will be posted in Fall 2014.
