Position: University of Miami Law School, Environmental Justice Clinic, Interim Director (Deadline: April 30, 2020, Miami, FL)

From a listserv email:

“. . . the University of Miami School of Law is seeking a dynamic and experienced lawyer-educator to direct and teach its Environmental Justice Clinic for the 2020-21 school year.  The Interim Director will have the opportunity to join the vibrant and supportive clinical community at Miami Law for a year while Miami Law embarks on the formal process to bring in a permanent Director; the Interim Director may apply to the permanent position once it is open.

The Environmental Justice Clinic (EJC) advocates for and seeks to empower low-and moderate-income communities who disproportionately bear the environmental, economic, and health burdens of the development, implementation, and enforcement of the law. Employing a community lawyering approach, the Clinic seeks systemic change for our clients through advocacy, public policy resources, rights education, and transactional assistance. The Clinic’s work sits at the intersection of civil rights, environmental, poverty, and public health law, tackling issues in South Florida including climate change, displacement, contamination, environmental health, municipal equity, and more. Increasingly, the Clinic views its work through the lens of climate change, one of the most significant social justice issues of our time, and which will be felt most acutely by the poor and marginalized.

The position is a full-time, one-year non-tenure track faculty position.  The full job description is attached.  Applications will be considered on a rolling basis until the position is filled, however applicants are strongly encouraged to apply for this position before April 30, 2020.”
