Both entry-level and lateral candidates are encouraged to apply.
Penn Law School's endowed clinical program, the Gittis Legal Clinics, is home to nine in-house clinics covering appellate practice, civil litigation, child advocacy, criminal defense, entrepreneurship and community economic development, immigration and human rights, intellectual property, legislation, and mediation.
Practice Professors are eligible to receive research funds during the academic year and may also apply for summer financial support for scholarly research. Review of candidates will begin as applications are received and continue until the position is filled.
