From an email message which I received earlier today:
Yale Law School invites applications for a full-time faculty director of clinical courses in the area of environmental law and policy. The position, which will be at the rank of Clinical Associate Professor or Clinical Professor of Law, will begin on July 1, 2016.
Yale Law School has a long and proud history of faculty, student, and alumni engagement with environmental, energy, and natural resources law and policy. In addition to its existing Environmental Protection Clinic, the Law School is home to the Yale Center for Environmental Law & Policy, an interdisciplinary research center. The Law School also offers a joint JD-MEM degree with the Yale School of Forestry & Environmental Studies, has many student organizations relating to environmental law, and hosts the annual New Directions in Environmental Law Conference.
As a member of the full-time law faculty, the director will plan, build, and manage the teaching, service, and research mission of environmental clinical offerings at Yale Law School. Duties of the director will include classroom teaching; supervision of law students and, where appropriate, non-law students; participation in activities related to the Law School’s environmental law program; administrative duties relating to environmental clinical offerings; community outreach and fundraising; and participation in faculty governance of the Law School. The candidate hired for the position will have the opportunity to shape the direction of both the existing Environmental Protection Clinic and future environmental clinical offerings.
It is anticipated that the director will join the Yale Law faculty as a full-time Associate Clinical Professor of Law with the potential for promotion to Clinical Professor of Law. If appropriate under the circumstances, alternative arrangements such as a visiting faculty position prior to consideration for appointment as Clinical Professor of Law may be offered. If not currently a member, admission to the State Bar of Connecticut will be required before the end of the first year of full-time appointment. Salary is commensurate with experience.
Applicants should have a J.D. degree or its equivalent and a minimum of two to five years of relevant experience. In addition to a record of, or demonstrated potential for, clinical teaching, advocacy, and intellectual engagement, the ideal candidate will have: previous practice experience in environmental law or advocacy; previous experience teaching, training, and supervising students in a clinical or experiential learning setting; published research or creative applied work on environmental law and policy; excellent supervisory and communication skills; the ability to work effectively with students, clients, and other constituents; and an interest in developing clinical experiences for students within a community that supports interdisciplinary collaboration and innovative, passionate teaching.
To apply, please submit a letter of interest, resume, and list of three references to Professor Douglas Kysar, Co-Chair, Clinical Appointments Committee, at email@example.com. Please write “Environmental Law Clinic Application” in the subject line of the email. Review of applications will begin October 1, 2015 and continue until the position is filled. Applications submitted prior to December 31, 2015 will receive full consideration.
