School of Law
Vacancy number 301220
Position Type: Faculty position with full, competitive benefits package
Opens: 02/09/22 Closes: Open Until Filled
The University of Baltimore School of Law invites applications for a fellowship to start on or about July 1, 2022 in the Community Development Clinic (CDC). This public interest fellowship program offers practicing attorneys exposure to clinical law teaching.
The CDC provides transactional, regulatory, and other non-litigation advice to community-based nonprofit groups, to small businesses headed by low-income entrepreneurs, and to social enterprises, cooperatives, and other clients with challenging and unmet legal needs. Students serve as first-chair attorneys under the guidance and support of law school faculty, including the CDC Fellow. We look forward to receiving your required electronic application, letter of interest, and resume and learning about your interest in and qualifications for our vacancy.
The Fellow's duties include supervising law students as they engage in client service for the first time, co-teaching the weekly clinical seminar with other CDC faculty, including CDC Director Jaime Lee, and engaging with the local community to learn about its legal needs. The Fellow will also cover client matters during winter and summer breaks in the academic calendar.
The CDC Fellow will have opportunities to engage in academic scholarship and to explore teaching as a long-term profession, and will receive close mentoring and support from UB’s community of other clinical law teachers and Fellows.
This position is a full-time, year-round contractual appointment for three years. Because the CDC serves evening students, the Fellow will work one or more evenings each week during the fall and spring semesters, with daytime hours adjusted accordingly.
Qualifications: Two years or more years of legal practice in transactional, small business, nonprofit, regulatory, employment, legislative, and/or community lawyering; exceptional listening skills; a demonstrated interest in working for low-income clients and communities; and an interest in mentoring and/or teaching. Be a member of the Maryland Bar or willing to become certified as a clinic supervising attorney under the Maryland Rules.
Salary : The current salary is $67,000. The position includes full benefits, including retirement, research support, and a travel allowance to attend relevant conferences and workshops.
