Georgetown University Seeks an Assistant Dean for Clinical Programs.
At the University of Maryland Community Justice Clinic
This new clinical course will focus on the roles of lawyers in reducing violence in our society, including as prosecutors, advisors, mediators, planners, teachers/mentors, and house counsel. It will operate in one or two Baltimore City neighborhoods. During the year, students will work sequentially and/or contemporaneously in several components of the clinic:
1) Community prosecution: In conjunction with the Baltimore City State's Attorney's Office, students and faculty will help to design, operate, evaluate, and replicate a community prosecution project in the Baltimore City District Court in which students help to: prosecute "quality-of-life"crimes (trespassing, vandalism, drug activity, drunk and disorderly conduct, loitering, open containers, prostitution, shoplifting and disturbing the peace), support a diversion/community service rogram (in which offenders perform community service in lieu of incarceration), represent the community organization that supervises and provides services to the offenders, and work with police, prosecutors, defenders and community groups to make this project effective.
2) Community justice council: Students and faculty will help to create,
staff, and evaluate this entity, which will devise and implement strategies to supervise and rehabilitate offenders who come from the neighborhoods served by the council, including "career" offenders. The council will be composed of law enforcement, prosecution, defense, court, service providers, community, educational, and church representatives.
3) School conflict resolution projects: In cooperation with a local high
school, students and faculty will help to: staff a workgroup that will
develop conflict-resolution projects for the high school, to implement and evaluate those projects, and to replicate successful projects. The workgroup will be composed of school administrators, teachers, students, parents, and community leaders.
4) Youth advocacy/law/leadership program: In cooperation with the local high school and one or more local community organization(s), the law students and faculty will work with high school students and faculty to develop, test, evaluate, and replicate a law-related, high school educational program and materials for that program. This project will engage both sets of students in learning-by-doing, with the focus of the work on neighborhood problems that have legal components.
5) Business-development: In conjunction with local community organizations and business leaders, the faculty and students will help to develop a local not-for-profit or for-profit business that will provide and fund some of the services that will be required to create and maintain the above projects.
The job is posted at the University of Maryland website. Applications must be submitted on line and are due on July 22, 2005.

Five clinical faculty provide theoretical and practical legal education in a model using cases which are relatively fast moving and short in duration.
