The Clinic’s primary mission is to provide an excellent experiential learning opportunity for our students, while also providing legal services to low-income individuals involved in health-related litigation (e.g., denial of benefits, guardianship proceedings). Duties will include classroom teaching; supervision of second- and third-year law students as they represent clients and participate in community projects; and community outreach and administrative responsibilities relating to the Health Law Clinic.
Qualifications include admission to practice in Pennsylvania or willingness to seek admission to the Pennsylvania bar; experience in the field of health law (with a preference for experience representing individuals in benefits and guardianship proceedings); and the ability to work effectively with students, clients, and other constituents. The School has a strong preference for candidates with experience in clinical pedagogy or other law school teaching experience.
