Paths to Legal Academia Part II: The Road to Clinical Teaching

Join ACS for the second in a series of conversations about the various paths to legal academia, the bumps along the way to look out for, and what you can do to prepare yourself. Our focus for this discussion will be on clinical teaching and whether your skills and interests are a good fit for a clinical teaching position. Our panelists will describe the workload of a clinical professor and what you can do to become a competitive candidate for such a position. As diversity lags in the legal profession, there is an urgent need for law teachers from underrepresented communities. Even if you've never considered law teaching before, we encourage you to join us for this important conversation.

Kara Stein, ACS Vice President of Policy & Program
