The Rutgers Civil Justice Clinic (CRC) (formerly Urban Legal Clinic) is one of the school’s oldest clinics and was founded by Professor Annamay Sheppard, the former director of Newark's first legal services program, in 1970. It is the law's school's first direct service clinic and its work includes supervised student representation of low-income, individual clients in a wide range of civil cases including landlord- tenant, consumer, family law, and public benefit cases. For the past 15 years it has been directed by Clinical Professor Jack Feinstein who has worked in this clinic since the early 1980s and is retiring in December 2017. There are 16 in-house clinics at Rutgers (11 in Newark) and our more than 20 full-time clinical faculty members all at least have ABA Standard 405(c) faculty voting rights and long-term job security-- either presumptively renewable long-term contracts on our clinical professor track or traditional tenure (or are on track for one or the other). This position will be a clinical track position. Candidates should have at least 3-5 years of relevant civil practice lawyering experience, preferably in the areas of landlord-tenant law and either consumer or family law. Previous clinical and other law teaching experience is a big plus. Scholarship will be a component of advancement on the clinical track and will be supported by the law school. The candidate's scholarship can be directed to other clinical educators, lawyers, judges and non-academic audiences in addition to other academic audiences. The position provides good fringe benefits and a competitive salary based on relevant experience.
