The University of Michigan Law School’s Clinical Fellows Program seeks applicants for a fellowship in the Law School’s Veterans Legal Clinic. This is a two-year appointment with a possibility of extension for a third year.
The Clinical Fellows Program is designed to allow attorneys to explore the possibility of a career in clinical teaching and fully support them in that endeavor. Michigan Clinical Fellows gain valuable experience and mentoring in clinical pedagogy and in their substantive area of practice. Their duties include clinical teaching and student supervision in conjunction with a clinic director, and participation in the operation and development of the clinic in which they teach. Support is provided for personal and professional development and scholarship.
The successful applicant will have a minimum three years of experience in civil litigation, a strong interest in clinical teaching, a demonstrated commitment to public interest lawyering, and the potential for scholarship and success as a clinical teacher. Candidates must hold a J.D. degree and be eligible for licensure in Michigan.
Experience with the veterans community and/or veterans issues is a plus but not a requirement.
Questions can be directed to Associate Dean Debra Chopp at email@example.com or 734-763-1948. We will begin reviewing applications immediately on a rolling basis and will accept applications until the position is filled.
