The Practitioner-in-Residence Program is designed to train lawyers or entry-level clinicians interested in becoming clinical teachers in the practice and theory of clinical legal education. Many graduates of the Practitioners-in-Residence program have gone on to tenure-track teaching positions at other law schools. These are full year, term positions. Practitioners can serve in these positions for up to three (3) years. Practitioners supervise student casework, co-teach weekly clinic seminars and case rounds, and engage in course planning and preparation with the clinic’s tenured faculty. They also teach a course outside of the clinical curriculum. The Practitioner-in-Residence Program provides full-year training in clinical theory and methodology and a writing workshop designed to assist Practitioners in the development of their clinical and doctrinal scholarship.
Applications consisting of a curriculum vitae and cover letter should be e-mailed to Professor Brenda V. Smith, Acting Director of the Clinical Program, and to Professor Nancy S. Abramowitz, with a copy to Professor Michael Carroll, Chair, Faculty Appointments Committee.
