Loyola University Chicago School of Law invites applications for the post-graduate Legislation and Policy Clinical Teaching Fellowship. This Academic Year 2021-2022 Fellowship, a non-tenure track faculty position, will commence July 1, 2021 or as soon thereafter as possible, with the possibility of renewal for a second year.

 

Under the direction of the director of the ChildLaw Policy Institute, housed in the Civitas ChildLaw Center at Loyola's School of Law, the Fellowship provides an opportunity for a recent law school graduate to gain experience in the area of clinical law teaching specific to policy and legislative reform. The Clinical Fellow will work closely with the Policy Institute's director, participating in the Institute's policy initiatives. The Policy Institute works on a broad range of projects related to children, including child protection, juvenile justice, domestic violence and children's health through policy reform, legislative advocacy, research and training. The Fellow also will participate in the development of course curriculum for the Legislation and Policy Clinic and may have the opportunity to participate in teaching and supervision of students involved in other classes. The Fellow will be encouraged to develop independent areas of interest, consistent with the mission of the ChildLaw Policy Institute.

 

Criteria for Selection: Preference will be given to recent law school graduates with experience in legislative and policy research and analysis on the state and/or federal level and familiarity with the legislative process; a demonstrated interest in the field of child law; and an interest in pursuing a career in clinical law teaching. Candidates with at least two years of relevant experience are preferred. Must possess excellent communication and writing skills.

 

Selection Process: Review of applications will begin January 15 and continue until the position is filled. The position will begin July 1, 2021, or as soon thereafter as possible. Applicants are asked to submit (1) a letter of interest describing the candidate’s reasons for applying for the fellowship, (2) curriculum vitae, (3) samples of scholarly or other written work, (4) a law school transcript, and (5) the names and contact information of up to three additional individuals prepared to provide professional references.
