Clinical Faculty Position Available AC
The Ohio State University, Michael E. Moritz College of Law
The Moritz College of Law invites applications for the position of Assistant Clinical
Professor of Law in its Justice for Children Practicum, to start in July or August 2011. After an
initial probationary period, this position involves a long-term renewable contract. Clinical
faculty at the Moritz College of Law have full faculty governance rights in all matters of College
administration other than the appointment and promotion of tenure-track faculty.
The Practicum is part of the Justice for Children Project at the Moritz College of Law,
founded during the 1997-98 academic year. Through a clinical course, or “practicum,” the
Project provides direct legal representation to children in a variety of legal proceedings, including
delinquency, unruly, abuse and neglect, judicial bypass, and custody matters. The Practicum’s
clinical professor will have several responsibilities, including 1) supervising law students who
represent clients under the Ohio Supreme Court’s student practice rule, 2) representing children
(primarily in juvenile court matters), and 3) classroom teaching of lawyering skills.
We will consider all applicants; however, we prefer candidates with at least three years of
litigation experience as well as interest or experience in advocacy on behalf of child clients.
Candidates should be admitted to the Ohio Bar or eligible for admission in Ohio. Finally,
candidates should have an academic record that demonstrates potential for clinical teaching and
clinical scholarship or preparation of clinical educational materials. The starting salary range will
be $78,000 – $81,000 for a 12-month contract; full University fringe benefits are provided as
well. The starting date will be July 1, 2011, or as soon thereafter as possible.
A resume, references, and cover letter should be submitted to Professor Steven Huefner,
Chair, Clinical Faculty Search Committee, The Ohio State University Moritz College of Law,
55 West 12th Avenue, Columbus, Ohio 43210. Send e-mail applications to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Applications will be reviewed immediately and will be accepted until the position is filled.
