From an email message that I received earlier today:
The University of Mississippi School of Law announces the creation of the MacArthur Justice Clinic, the law school's ninth clinical program. Opening this summer, the Clinic will undertake impact litigation on civil rights/human rights matters and criminal justice issues in Mississippi. The law school seeks a tenure-track clinical faculty member to lead and teach in the clinic. With the generous support of the J. Roderick MacArthur Foundation, the law school will receive funding for the Clinic’s litigation efforts, and will also create an endowment to provide loan repayment and fellowships for recent graduates who pursue public interest law in Mississippi. Within five years, the law school anticipates this fund will reach the $1 million mark. The School of Law looks forward not only to the work of the MacArthur Justice Clinic, but also to the connection the Clinic will build with the Roderick MacArthur Justice Center at Northwestern University School of Law. The Chair of the Search Committee is Professor Donna Davis [email protected]. For more information about the position and to apply, please visit https://jobs.olemiss.edu/postings/2645.
