The University of California, Hastings College of Law, is seeking to fill two clinical law professor slots. Here's the posting:
The University of California, Hastings College of the Law in San Francisco, California invites applications from both entry-level and lateral candidates for what we hope will be two full-time, clinical tenure-track faculty positions to begin in July 2013.
One of the clinical positions is to launch and teach an in-house business transactional clinic as well as a hybrid or out-placement clinic in which students are supervised by pro bono private attorneys. The in-house clinic was initially designed to represent social enterprises (a relatively new corporate form in California) and nonprofits, but we are open to any client base or substantive focus that provides students with meaningful transactional business lawyering opportunities. The hybrid or outplacement clinic will place students under the supervision of pro bono private attorneys to advise early-stage, start-up technology companies.
The substantive area of the second in-house clinical position is open, and might include civil litigation, community economic development, family law/domestic violence, policy advocacy, or tax. We invite applications for this second position now, although we may not have budgetary clarity on its availability until January 2013.
Clinical tenure at UC Hastings brings full voting and governance rights with similar scholarly publication expectations as our non-clinical colleagues.
To apply, please email a cover letter, CV, electronic copies of publications and/or works in progress, and a summary of your scholarly agenda to Profs. Jo Carrillo (email@example.com<mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org>) and John Diamond (email@example.com<mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org>), co-chairs of our faculty appointments committee. Feel free to direct any preliminary inquiries or suggestions of candidates to Ascanio Piomelli (email@example.com<mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org>).
