Job Description

Columbia Law School invites applicants for clinical faculty positions, across areas of practice and teaching experience. We are interested in candidates who will help us build the next generation of clinics at CLS and welcome candidates to fill existing gaps in our curriculum and candidates who bring new ideas for clinical teaching.

We wish to hire faculty committed to providing a powerful individual and collective learning experience where students serve as the primary providers of legal services, under close faculty supervision. Creative and thoughtful teaching that focuses on student development, law reform, and advancement of the profession are also central. Diversity – of life experience, perspectives and approaches to lawyering – is essential and a very high priority. We look forward to welcoming new colleagues who will help us build our program.

Clinical faculty positions at Columbia Law School are non-tenure track positions that are or are expected to lead to a long term, renewable contract. Although some clinical faculty engage in scholarly writing, there is no separate scholarship requirement, either at the time of hiring or during their time at CLS.

Candidates who submit an application in Fall 2022 will be contacted with a hiring update in December 2022.

Teaching and practice experience commensurate with level of appointment.
