The Center for Immigration Law and Policy at UCLA School of Law seeks a Deputy Director with sustained experience in the practice of immigration law to join the Center’s senior management team. The Center will generate innovative ideas at the intersection of immigration scholarship and practice; serve as a hub for transforming those ideas into meaningful changes in immigration policy at the local, state, and national level; and empower students with unique opportunities for experiential learning through work with academics, practitioners, policymakers, and activists.

The Deputy Director will play a leading role in building the Center’s strategic vision and developing and managing its work through close collaboration with the Center’s Faculty Co-Directors. The Deputy Director will be responsible for a broad range of academic and administrative functions in the Center, including research and advocacy on immigration law and policy issues, teaching the Center’s and affiliated clinical programs, and the design and execution of conferences and an array of other scholarly engagements. The Deputy Director will also support the Faculty Co-Directors in marketing, fundraising and grant activities, and in planning and implementing strategies for generating resources for the Center.

The minimum requirements for this position include an excellent academic record; a J.D. or equivalent advanced degree from a U.S. school; significant (minimum 7 years') experience practicing immigration law and/or working on immigration policy; experience closely supervising or teaching law students; and demonstrated management, administrative, and organizational skills. Established ties with Los Angeles-based organizations or communities and fluent Spanish are advantages, as is experience working with social movements. The salary and level of appointment will be commensurate with qualifications and experience. This is a full-time, year-round, non-tenure track, academic position.

This appointment is subject to the rules and regulations of the Regents of the University of California, which are mostly embodied in The UCLA CALL and the University of California Academic Personnel Manual.
