The Community Justice Project is currently accepting applications for the 2016-2018 clinical teaching fellowship.
The Community Justice Project hires one individual to serve as a clinical teaching fellow and supervising attorney each year, for a two year term (2016-18). 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. The fellowship position begins on July 1, 2016 and is for two years, ending on June 30, 2018.
We will only consider applicants with at least 3 years of post J.D. legal experience. Applicants must be admitted or willing to be admitted to the District of Columbia Bar. We are most interested in applicants with experience in direct representation, demonstrated commitment to social justice, and an interest in clinical teaching and legal education.
Please submit a cover letter, résumé, and a writing sample (no longer than 10 pages) by Monday, February 1, 2016 to email@example.com.
