    GEORGETOWN LAW invites applications for a tenure-track faculty position to direct the Health Justice Alliance Law Clinic, which is part of Georgetown’s top-ranked clinical program. The Health Justice Alliance Law Clinic is part of a medical-legal partnership between Georgetown Law and Georgetown University Medical Center, through which law students, fellows, and faculty collaborate with medical, nursing, and behavioral health students, faculty, and staff to improve the health and well-being of low-income children and families in Washington, D.C.  Through partnerships with the MedStar Georgetown Community Pediatrics department, which runs school health centers and a mobile pediatric van, and the HOYA Clinic, which serves homeless families, law students enrolled in the Law Clinic represent low-income families in a variety of poverty law areas, including education, family law, housing, and public benefits.  Students also engage in systemic projects, such as policy and inter-professional and community education projects related to the medical-legal partnership work.

    The Faculty Appointments Committee is particularly interested in candidates with prior medical-legal partnership experience in the relevant practice areas and prior clinical teaching experience. Candidates must demonstrate a record of strong academic performance and excellent potential for scholarly achievement.  Candidates should submit a cover letter, curriculum vitae, references and a scholarly agenda to Emily N. Smith at eny3@georgetown.edu.

    Georgetown Law has operated its highly regarded in-house clinical program for more than 50 years. Through this program, students learn the practical art of lawyering while providing quality legal representation to under-represented individuals and organizations. We offer 17 different clinics, and more than 300 students participate in this program every year.

    GEORGETOWN LAW invites applications for one tenure-track faculty position in the Criminal Justice and the Criminal Defense and Prisoner Advocacy Clinics, which are both part of Georgetown’s top-ranked clinical program.

    Georgetown Law is fortunate to have two criminal clinics that serve many third-year law students and six E. Barrett Prettyman fellows each year.  Because of the size of the two programs, in addition to the directors of the respective clinics, an additional full-time faculty member is shared between the two year-long clinics, teaching in the seminar and supervising students in both clinics on their criminal cases. 

    The faculty member in this position plays a vital role in supervising the E. Barrett Prettyman program (a 57 year-long Georgetown institution).  As the Co-Director of the Prettyman program, the faculty member runs a six-week training program for the fellows at the beginning of their fellowship and supervises the fellows in their misdemeanor and felony caseloads through the year.  With teaching responsibilities in two different clinics and the supervision of students and fellows in multiple criminal cases, this position requires an energetic, thoughtful, and experienced practitioner and scholar. Since this appointment is on the tenure track, the faculty member will be expected to produce high-quality scholarship and to engage in the academic life of the law school. Interested candidates should submit a cover letter, curriculum vitae, three references and a scholarly agenda to Emily N. Smith at eny3@georgetown.edu.

    GEORGETOWN LAW seeks applications for a tenure-track faculty position in our Communications and Technology Law Clinic.  This clinic has been part of Georgetown’s Institute for Public Representation since 1980.  The clinic is also part of the law school’s Institute for Technology Law and Policy, which works to train the next generation of lawyers and lawmakers and provides a uniquely valuable forum in Washington, DC for policymakers, academics and technologists to discuss the most pressing issues and opportunities in technology law today.

    The Communications and Technology Law Clinic represents nonprofit organizations working to adopt, enforce, and defend laws and policies that promote the use of technologies to serve the public interest.  The clinic practices before the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), the Federal Trade Commission (FTC), other federal agencies, and federal appellate courts.  The clinic has been active, for example, in supporting limits on media ownership at both the FCC and in the courts to encourage diverse viewpoints and opportunities for women and people of color to own broadcast stations.  At the FTC, the clinic has worked to enforce the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act and prevent deceptive or unfair advertising to children. More examples of recent projects can be found at https://www.georgetowntech.org/ipr-communications-technology-clinic/.  

    The candidate must be or become a member of the D.C. Bar.  Successful candidates should be familiar with federal administrative law and appellate practice.  Work experience before or at the FCC or FTC would be a plus.  While the faculty member will initially supervise work on ongoing cases, over time, she or he would need to develop appropriate new cases and projects in light of changes in law, technology, student interest, client needs and pedagogic goals. 

    Prior experience with clinical teaching is desirable.  The candidate should enjoy working closely with law students, have experience supervising others, and possess the management skills to keep the clinic running smoothly.  Since this appointment is on the tenure track, the faculty member will be expected to produce high-quality scholarship and to engage in the academic life of the law school.    

    Interested candidates should submit a cover letter, curriculum vitae, three references and a scholarly agenda to Emily N. Smith at eny3@georgetown.edu. Georgetown University is an Equal Opportunity Employer committed to building a diverse workforce. It encourages applications from women, racial and ethnic minorities, individuals with disabilities and veterans.
