Assistant or Associate Professor - Director of Community Development Clinic

We are seeking a tenure-track Assistant or Associate Professor as Director of our Community Development Clinic. The clinic provides representation to entrepreneurial businesses in the South Coast region. The director will teach one section of a doctrinal course each semester, likely Business Organizations. UMass Law is dedicated to creating access to legal education for groups underrepresented in the profession, and is committed to graduating justice-centered lawyers prepared to practice responsibly and creatively. The school’s in-house clinics were developed to meet critical community needs.

UMass Law is located on Massachusetts’ South Coast, about one hour from Boston and thirty minutes from Providence and Cape Cod. As the only public law school in Massachusetts, UMass is poised to become a leader in stewarding justice in the state, and the new tenure-track clinic director will be an integral part of that growth.

Required qualifications: candidates must have a J.D., be licensed in Massachusetts within one year of hire, and have at least one year of legal clinic teaching experience.  

Preferred qualifications: at least five years combined law practice and clinical teaching experience.

You may apply at http://www.umassd.edu/hr/employmentopportunities/ with a letter of interest, current resume, and the contact information for three professional references.

The review of applications will begin immediately and continue until the position is filled.
