New Faculty Position for Clinic


You may have seen that we're going to be starting a live client clinic, with the first students to be enrolled in January. I am the acting director for the moment, but we're searching for a full time person to run the clinic for us. The following is our ad. If interested, please feel free to send your resume to me:


Clinical Teaching Position at the University of Louisville School of Law

The University of Louisville School of Law seeks applications for a tenure-track clinical position. The successful candidate will work in the school's newly established clinic located in downtown Louisville, Kentucky. Because the clinic is new, its precise focus has not yet been defined. The faculty has agreed that as a general matter, the clinic will eventually have two branches: a transactional branch and a branch involving representation in civil cases. We anticipate that the particular skills, interest, and experience of the new faculty member will help define the particular focus of the clinic. Thus, this position affords a unique opportunity to help shape the mission of the new clinic. We will consider candidates specializing in transactional work, civil dispute resolution, or a combination. Candidates who can contribute to the diversity of the faculty are especially encouraged to apply.

Qualified applicants would ordinarily have at least 4 years of experience, either in practice or in combination with clinical teaching. Other relevant experience will be considered. Applicants must be a member of the Kentucky Bar or must attain membership by examination or reciprocity within one year of joining the faculty.

The University of Louisville School of Law is a relatively small institution located in the dynamic city of Louisville, Kentucky. It is the fifth oldest American law school in continuous operation, and was one of the first to adopt a mandatory public service requirement for all students. The law school is part of a major research institution, providing opportunities for cross-disciplinary work.

Interested candidates may submit an application to Professor Lars Smith, chair of the clinic committee, at the School of Law (502.852.7273). All applications should include a proposed "mission statement" for the clinic, discussing the particular area(s) on which the applicant would focus the clinic's activities.
