The Touro University College Jacob D. Fuchsberg Law Center seeks applicants for a specialized tenured or tenure-track clinic faculty appointment to direct our Immigration Law Clinic. Candidates must have a J.D. degree from an ABA accredited law school and a commitment to teaching in an environment dedicated to excellence in teaching and mentoring of students. We seek candidates with a commitment to justice and a record of or interest in clinic pedagogy and will consider both lateral and entry level applicants. The position requires experience in the practice of immigration law with the ability to develop clinical teaching skills or significant clinical teaching experience in other fields with the ability to apply that experience to an immigration law clinic. Touro's Immigration Law Clinic has in recent years provided successful representation to Suffolk County immigrants in venues from Suffolk Family Court to the Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit. The clinical program is an integrated law office and we often collaborate between clinics on cases. It is expected that the Immigration Clinic will not have an existing case load and we invite candidates to share their own vision for the clinic and how it can achieve the program’s dual goals of social justice in client work and education of law students. Applicants must demonstrate a commitment to service to legal education and to the wider community as well as a desire to engage in the intellectual life of the Law Center. With one of the most diverse student bodies in the country, Touro Law Center is dedicated to the aims of diversity and inclusion and strongly encourages applications from those who would contribute to that diversity as defined in the broadest sense. Applicants are expected to be willing and capable of teaching in-person and remotely and familiar with best practices in both modalities.
