We’re particularly excited, given the ever-expanding reach of technology, to diversify the skillset and expertise of our team with this hire. We are especially interested in attorneys with social justice practices — including practices that touch on race, gender, and economic issues — who have an interest in technology, even if they wouldn’t identify as tech lawyers.
The Cyberlaw Clinic provides pro bono services to individuals and organizations facing technology-related legal issues. Over the twenty years of our existence, our practice has evolved to span IP; digital civil liberties and human rights; privacy and security; new media and online speech; emerging technologies; government innovation; and online safety. The new hire may work across any of these areas or develop new ones. More information on the Clinic, including core values and recent projects, is available on our website.
The Clinical Instructor’s primary responsibility will be to supervise, manage, mentor, and teach the students enrolled in the Clinic as they represent clients. This position is a great opportunity to serve the public interest, mentor the next generation of legal practitioners, transition to academic pursuits, and work in a cutting-edge and intellectually invigorating environment with ample opportunities for learning and professional development.
The work and wellbeing of the Cyberlaw Clinic community is strengthened profoundly by the diversity of our network and our differences in background, culture, experience, national origin, religion, sexual orientation and much more. We actively seek and welcome applications from people of color, women, the LGBTQIA community, and persons with disabilities.
