Students in the Innocence Project Clinic review records, interview clients and witnesses, conduct legal research, devise investigative strategies, draft pleadings and argue motions in cases involving claims of wrongful conviction. Students develop an understanding of the post-conviction process and the various scientific issues that have emerged that impact on the reliability of eyewitness identification, forensic evidence, and police interrogation methods.
The fellowship focuses its first year on the skills of teaching, from crafting and leading seminars to facilitating supervision meetings with student-attorneys. The second year of the fellowship focuses on developing legal scholarship. In the third year, we support the Fellow to go on the clinical teaching job market. In addition to teaching, supervision, and legal scholarship, the Fellow is responsible for case coverage over the summer and during the winter break.
Required Qualifications: Excellent oral and written communication skills; a strong academic record and/or other indicia of high-performance ability; commitment to work for low income and immigrant clients; and a strong interest in teaching. Three years of experience as a practicing lawyer is required, along with one year of practicing criminal law, with experience relating to wrongful convictions preferred. This position is a three-year contractual appointment.
Fellows must be members in good standing with the Maryland Bar or another State bar and, if needed, be willing to complete the requirements necessary to supervise law practice by students.
Salary: The current salary is $60,000. The position includes full benefits, including retirement, research support, and a travel allowance to attend relevant conferences and workshops.
