FACULTY VACANCY ANNOUNCEMENT

The CUNY School of Law Clinical Program has been nationally recognized as one of the best in legal education and affords each student the opportunity to engage in the practice of law by learning through service to underserved communities. The Law School currently offers twelve live-client clinical programs and two practice clinics. CUNY School of Law faculty members have been recognized as innovative leaders in clinical legal education, through service, publications, and participation at conferences.

The Law School seeks an Instructor responsible for case supervision, case management, co-teaching and curricular development in the Community & Economic Development Clinic (CED).
