New law school clinic to undertake impact litigation on rights and criminal justice issues in Mississippi

UmissAt the request of Dean I. Richard Gershon of the University of Mississippi School of Law, I am pleased to be able to post this announcement about at exciting new clinic and job opportunity at Dean Gershon's school:

The University of Mississippi School of Law announces the creation of the MacArthur Justice Clinic, the law school's ninth clinical program.  The Clinic will undertake impact litigation on civil rights/human rights matters and criminal justice issues in Mississippi.  The law school seeks a tenure-track (or long-term appointment ) clinical faculty member to lead and teach in the clinic. With the generous support of the J. Roderick MacArthur Foundation, the law school will receive funding for the Clinic’s litigation efforts, and will also create an endowment to provide loan repayment and fellowships for recent graduates who pursue public interest law in Mississippi. The School of Law looks forward not only to the work of the MacArthur Justice Clinic, but also to the connection the Clinic will build with the Roderick MacArthur Justice Center at Northwestern University School of Law.

The Chair of the Search Committee is Professor Ben Cooper (email bcooper @ olemiss.edu). For more information about the position and to apply, please visit this link.  For more information on the establishment of the Clinic, please visit this link.
