NYU Technology Law and Policy Clinic

Clinical Teaching Fellowship


The NYU Technology Law and Policy Clinic seeks to appoint a Teaching Fellow to serve as both a staff attorney and teaching fellow in the Clinic. The Fellow will work on case matters, supervise students in both substantive and pedagogical respects, and participate in teaching the seminar. This two-year fellowship, with the potential for a third year, is an ideal opportunity to develop a career in public interest advocacy and/or clinical teaching in areas related to technology law and policy. The Fellowship will begin in Summer 2019.


About the Clinic

The Clinic, directed by Professor Jason Schultz and co-taught with an attorney from the ACLU’s Speech, Privacy, and Technology Project, focuses on representing individuals, nonprofits, and consumer groups who are engaged with legal and policy issues at the intersection of technology and social, economic, and political change—from access to information and algorithmic discrimination to intellectual property, free speech, national security, and privacy matters. Fellows will have the opportunity to shape the Clinic’s docket, which pursues a mission in the public interest.

Resources and Benefits

The Fellowship offers a competitive salary and excellent benefits. The Fellow will receive support for research, scholarship, and professional development, including the opportunity to participate in the activities of the Engelberg Center for Innovation Law and Policy and the Information Law Institute’s Privacy Research Group, as well as those of other research communities at NYU and beyond.


Past Fellows have proceeded to positions as public interest lawyers and clinical professors, as well as in-house positions with government agencies and private technology firms.



Eligible candidates will have two to five years of experience and be admitted or prepared to seek admission to the NY State Bar.


Successful candidates will have both a demonstrated interest in law and technology practice and/or policy work and experience in one or more areas, such as intellectual property, free expression and the First Amendment, privacy and surveillance, information security or other related areas of law. The ideal candidate will enjoy working on collaborative teams, supervising and mentoring students, and exploring complex law and policy questions.
