    STANFORD LAW SCHOOL’S Mills Legal Clinic invites applicants for a clinical supervising attorney and lecturer-in-law position with its International Human Rights Clinic (IHRC). The clinical supervising attorney (CSA) will join the thriving clinical community at the Stanford Law School where, together with the clinical faculty and staff, they will represent clients, work alongside project partners, and train law students at one of the country’s leading institutions for legal scholarship and education.

    The Mills Legal Clinic
    IHRC is one of eleven clinics comprising the Mills Legal Clinic. The Stanford clinical program is unique in that students participate in a clinic on a full-time basis; the clinic is the only course a student takes during the term of enrollment. Students work in the clinic space each business day, and they focus exclusively and intensively on their clients, cases, and projects. This model allows for highly intentional, reflective, and iterative project work and the ability to provide deep supervision and mentoring to students. The Mills Legal Clinic is also committed to ensuring diversity, equity, and inclusion in all of its office and practice management, advocacy, and teaching and learning efforts. The Mills Legal Clinic occupies an entire floor in an award-winning, central-campus building opened in summer 2011.

    International Human Rights Clinic
    IHRC is inviting applications for a clinical supervising attorney and lecturer-in-law position. The Clinic engages students in innovative and interdisciplinary advocacy to advance human rights and foster just and lasting peace globally. Students divide their time between an intensive clinical seminar and clinical advocacy projects. The projects are designed and implemented in partnership with impacted communities and civil society groups around the world, and community agency and power are values that underlie all the work of the Clinic.  Clinic projects adopt a range of methodologies from the human rights and peacebuilding fields which may include fact-finding investigations and advocacy efforts, human rights reporting, legislative and policy drafting, engagement with judicial and quasi-judicial processes, advocacy to the UN, media or governments, coalition building across regions and disciplines, conflict analysis, and designing and facilitating dialogues in conflict-affected regions or across identity groups. In the upcoming academic year, some of these projects will focus on addressing identity-based discrimination and fostering peace in diverse regions around the world using strategies from both the human rights and peacebuilding fields.

    The Clinic is also a space for students to examine key critiques of the human rights and peacebuilding fields, reflect on how to mitigate these critiques, and brainstorm how to engage in transformative and rights-based work. Additionally, students will reflect on their own identity as advocates and its implications for their work, and how to work collaboratively in teams and with project partners to advance change. Through the seminar and projects, students will develop the skills to become thoughtful, critical, adaptive, strategic, and creative advocates.

    The Clinical Staff Attorney Position and Candidate Qualifications
    The CSA will play an important role in designing and implementing all aspects of the Clinic, including setting up and leading clinic projects in partnership with impacted communities and civil society organizations, co-creating the syllabus with the Director of the Clinic, leading and participating in seminar and case rounds discussions, fostering a sense of deep and supportive community within the Clinic, and supervising SLS students in all aspects of their work, including through individualized coaching and mentoring. The CSA may also need to supervise students during travel that takes place during the quarter. The CSA will be involved with human rights programming at the Law School and university, and will have the opportunity to engage in scholarly research and writing.

    Mills Legal Clinic attorneys are part of the intellectual community within the clinical program and the Law School and university at large.  The clinic provides resources for its lawyers to participate in continuing education and any other professional development/training/mentorship activities that support the CSA’s individual learning goals. Finally, the CSA will be a part of the Mills Legal Clinic’s efforts to ensure diversity, equity, and inclusion in our teaching, practice management, and advocacy work.

    · Strong academic credentials;

    · J.D. or equivalent legal degree;

    · A minimum of five years of human rights experience, including experience training, teaching, or mentoring law students or advocates, and a strong interest in teaching and clinical pedagogy; and

    Preferred qualifications

    · Demonstrated commitment to rigorous, innovative, strategic, and self-reflective social justice work;

    · Significant experience implementing a wide range of tactics and tools employed in the human rights field;

    · Substantive legal and practical knowledge of human rights issues, including related to identity-based discrimination;

    · Experience and ability to design and direct complex, innovative, and interdisciplinary projects that attempt to prevent, redress, and transform human rights issues;

    · Deep commitment and demonstrated ability to work in strong, collaborative, and rights-respecting partnerships, including in particular with clients, impacted communities, and civil society organizations;

    · An understanding of and engagement with critiques of human rights and peacebuilding fields, as well as experience with responding to and overcoming those critiques in practice;

    · Excellent teamwork, collaboration, and interpersonal skills;

    · Strong organizational / management skills and attention to detail;
