Position description

THE UNIVERSITY OF CALIFORNIA, IRVINE SCHOOL OF LAW invites applications for a full-time Visiting Clinical Professor or Visiting Assistant Clinical Professor to co-teach in its Community & Economic Development Clinic (Fall 2022 and Spring 2023 semester).

A Visiting Clinical Professor or Visiting Assistant Clinical Professor would co-teach for two semesters in a one-semester, six-credit course that satisfies the Law School’s clinical course requirement for graduation. Applicants should have at least 7-10 years of legal practice and/or teaching experience in the relevant practice area. Applicants must hold a J.D. degree or equivalent from an accredited institution and be a member of a state bar. In addition, they must have demonstrated potential for excellence in clinical teaching. The person selected will be appointed as a Visiting Clinical Professor or Visiting Assistant Clinical Professor, depending on experience. Salary will be commensurate with qualifications and experience.

A brief description of the Community & Economic Development Clinic is provided below; more information is available on the Law School’s website.

The Community & Economic Development Clinic focuses on issues of community and economic development in low-and moderate-income populations, emphasizing non-adversarial, transactional approaches to advocacy. Because the clinic’s primary goal is to solve its clients problems by the most effective means available, the clinic also represents clients in some litigation matters. Clinic students primarily represent organizational clients, including resident organizations in mobile home parks, non-profits and small businesses.
