The University of Baltimore School of Law invites applications for a Fellowship in its Civil Advocacy Clinic to start on or about July 1, 2023. This public interest fellowship program offers practicing attorneys exposure to law school clinical teaching. For more information about UBalt's clinical program and the Saul Ewing Civil Advocacy Clinic, please go here: http://law.ubalt.edu/clinics/index.cfm.
The Civil Advocacy Clinic represents low-income individuals and organizations in poverty law litigation, legislative advocacy, and legal reform. The Clinic handles a wide variety of cases, which include housing, public benefits, consumer, and employment law. The Fellow’s duties include direct supervision of clinic students’ client, case, legislative advocacy and community education work, co-teaching a weekly clinic seminar, and engaging in course planning and preparation with the other faculty members in the Clinic. The Fellowship focuses its first year on the skills of teaching, from crafting and leading seminars, to facilitating supervision meetings with student-attorneys. The second year of the fellowship focuses on developing legal scholarship. In the third year, we support the Fellow to go on the clinical teaching job market. In addition to teaching, supervision, and legal scholarship, the Fellow is responsible for case coverage during school vacations. This position is a three-year contractual appointment.
Qualifications: Excellent oral and written communication skills; a J.D. and at least two years of experience as a practicing lawyer primarily in litigation; a strong academic record and/or other indicia of high-performance ability; commitment to work for low income clients; and a strong interest in law school teaching and scholarship. Fellows must be members in good standing with the Maryland Bar or another State bar and willing to complete the necessary documentation to be permitted to supervise law practice by students.
Salary: The current salary is $70,000. The position includes full benefits, including retirement annuities, research support, and a travel allowance to attend relevant conferences and workshops.
