The University of Michigan Law Clinical Fellows Program seeks applicants for a teaching fellowship in its Workers’ Rights Clinic. The WRC is an innovative live-client clinic that provides first-, second-, and third-year law students with live-client learning experiences. It is one of the only legal clinics in the country providing advocacy opportunities to first-year students.

WRC students take first-chair responsibility for representing Unemployment Insurance (UI) claimants at every stage of the administrative appeal process, including administrative trials and commission appeals. 2L and 3L students may also handle appeals to the state circuit courts and Michigan Court of Appeals.


The WRC teaching fellow will teach and supervise in the clinic and represent clients. This is a 2-year appointment. The Clinical Fellows Program is designed to allow attorneys to explore and prepare for 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 of relevant advocacy experience, including experience in Unemployment Insurance law, a strong interest in clinical teaching, a demonstrated commitment to public interest lawyering, and potential for scholarship and success as a clinical teacher.
  • Candidates for this Teaching Fellowship at the University of Michigan must hold a J.D. degree and be eligible for licensure in Michigan.
