The University of Maryland School of Law seeks applicants for a clinical faculty position in the field of Alternative Dispute Resolution. The primary roles of the successful applicant will be to teach and run an ongoing Mediation Clinic and to engage in scholarship related to mediation and dispute resolution.

The existing Mediation Clinic is a year-long clinic in which students are trained to mediate cases in the District Court for Baltimore City. In addition, students in the clinic mediate a variety of cases that are referred by judges from the state trial courts, as well as by state and federal agencies. C-DRUM is a comprehensive dispute resolution center that works collaboratively with public and private institutions to promote, enhance, and teach conflict resolution skills and to research and develop conflict resolution systems throughout Maryland and beyond. Current C-DRUM initiatives include school-based conflict education programs, research for the Maryland judiciary on juvenile justice and family court processes, and design of dispute resolution systems for public agencies. The Director works closely with the Deputy Director to develop initiatives, write grant applications and perform work required under existing grants and contracts.
