    THE UNIVERSITY OF THE DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA DAVID A. CLARKE SCHOOL OF LAW (UDC-DCSL) invites applications to fill two visiting law professor positions at the assistant or associate professor level.  We are interested in candidates desiring to teach in our clinical program who can also teach Contracts II and/or Criminal Law.  We are also particularly interested in candidates who are willing to teach in our evening program. Candidates must demonstrate a record of strong academic performance and excellent potential for scholarly achievement. Relevant experience and a demonstrated potential for outstanding clinical teaching is expected.  The position begins August 16, 2019.  

    UDC-DCSL is one of only six American Bar Association accredited law schools at Historically Black Colleges and Universities, and is the nation’s only urban, public land grant university. 

    UDC-DCSL has a three-part statutory mission:

    • to recruit and enroll students from groups underrepresented at the bar,
    • to provide a well-rounded theoretical and practical legal education that will enable students to be effective and ethical advocates, and
    • to represent the legal needs of low-income residents through the School’s legal clinics.

    The School of Law has been a leader in experiential and clinical education for more than 40 years beginning with its predecessor Antioch School of Law.  Every student completes two 300 hour clinical courses, as well as forty hours of community service.  UDC-DCSL offers nine legal clinics in the following areas: juvenile and special education; housing and consumer; general practice; community development; legislation; low-income taxpayer; government accountability; immigration and human rights and criminal defense. 

    UDC-DCSL consistently earns high rankings for its diversity, clinical program, and public interest mission. This commitment – and the excellence with which it is

    pursued – has led to a No. 2 ranking by the National Law Journal (2018) for government and public interest job placement; No. 2 for Most Chosen by Older Students, No. 3 for Best Environment for Minority Students, and No. 7 for Most Diverse Faculty in the nation by Princeton Review (2018); and No. 8 for Best Clinical Training Program by U.S. News & World Report (2019). As former Attorney General Eric Holder said at the first UDC Law Gala in 2017, “We need lawyers trained in the UDC Law clinical model now more than ever.”

    Although we will accept applications until the position is filled, we strongly encourage interested applicants to submit applications immediately. Interested candidates should submit their application https://udc.applicantstack.com/x/detail/a2hbyxhz9yma
