Job Summary

The University of Michigan Law Clinical Fellows Program seeks applicants for a fellowship in its Pediatric Advocacy Clinic. This is a two year appointment with a possibility of extension for a third year.

The Pediatric Advocacy Clinic (PAC) is one of the first medical-legal partnerships in a law school clinical setting.  Collaborating with health care providers in and around Ann Arbor, the PAC provides a range of civil legal services to low-income families with the goal of improving the health and wellbeing of pediatric patients and their families.  The caseload consists primarily of education cases, family law/domestic violence cases, and Medicaid appeals cases.


The Clinical Fellows Program is designed to allow attorneys to explore the possibility of a career in clinical teaching and fully support them in that endeavor. Michigan Clinical Fellows gain valuable experience and mentoring in clinical pedagogy and in their substantive area of practice. Their duties include clinical teaching and student supervision in conjunction with a clinic director, and participation in the operation and development of the clinic in which they teach.  Support is provided for personal and professional development and scholarship.

The successful applicant will have a minimum of 3 years experience in at least one of PAC’s core areas of practice, a strong interest in clinical teaching, a demonstrated commitment to serving the underserved, and potential for scholarship and success as a clinical teacher.  Familiarity with medical-legal partnerships and Spanish language skills are a plus.  Candidates must hold a J.D. degree and be eligible for licensure in Michigan.  Michigan’s Clinical Fellows salaries and benefits are very competitive. The fellowship begins in July, 2018.
