The University of Florida Levin College of Law has an immediate opening for a clinical fellow who will work in its expanding Immigration Law Clinic. The clinic developed as an offshoot of the work of our Intimate Partner Violence Assistance Clinic (IPVAC), with funding from the Florida Bar Foundation. Students enrolled in the Immigration Law Clinic receive instruction and supervision related to individual representation of immigrant clients with U-Visas, VAWA self-petitions, adjustments of status, Employment Authorizations, Federal Benefits, Drivers’ Licenses or IDs, and FOIA requests. Additionally, the clinic provides assistance to the US-born children of immigrants.
The clinical fellow will work directly with IPVAC Professor Teresa Drake, clinic students, and clients, and will conduct outreach to immigrants in 15 rural counties in North Florida. The clinical fellow will be instrumental in continuing and expanding on the clinic’s mission, and will help teach our clinic course, which is taught in cooperation with the immigration law clinic at Florida State University Law School.
For more information, including instructions on how to apply, please see the posting on PittLawWorks. Applicants must include a CV, references and a cover letter. Review of applications will begin January 2, 2019 and will continue until the position is filled.
The Barco Law Library is open during regular library hours for Pitt Law faculty and students only. Due to COVID-19 restrictions, we are not open to Pitt users outside of Pitt Law; and we are not open to the public.
