Civil Justice Clinic
Clinical Teaching Fellowship, 2024-26

Clinic Description

The newly formed Civil Justice Clinic (“CJC”) at Georgetown Law helps low-income clients achieve access to justice through advocacy in a variety of legal contexts – with a particular focus on economic justice and workplace justice. Under the close supervision of the Clinic’s faculty director and clinical teaching fellows, the students help their clients solve legal problems and provide representation in civil matters in the courts and administrative agencies of the District of Columbia and Maryland. The Civil Justice Clinic’s docket typically contains cases involving wage and hour violations and denial of public benefits. The clinic is particularly committed to representing low-wage workers in wage theft cases against exploitative employers. Students in the CJC learn key lawyering and advocacy skills in their representation of individual clients.

Description of the Fellowship

CJC is hiring one lawyer to serve as a clinical teaching fellow and supervising attorney for a two-year term beginning in the summer of 2024. The fellow will have several areas of responsibility, with an increasing role in the clinic as the fellowship progresses.
