Georgia State Universitys College of Law seeks highly qualified applicants for a full-time clinical faculty position in its Low-Income Taxpayer Clinic.   The clinical faculty appointment would be non-tenure track, with faculty status, a renewable contract, and job security commensurate with tenured faculty.  Clinical faculty have voting rights and serve on faculty committees at the College of Law.  The appointment could begin at the commencement of the 2015-2016 academic year or as early as January 2015.


The Clinical Professor will primarily assist in the operation and administration of the Tax Clinic and will have limited teaching responsibilities. The Clinical Professor will supervise students in all aspects of Tax Clinic client representation.  The preferred applicant should have a law degree, a strong academic background, practical tax experience, and a proven record of, or demonstrated potential for, student supervision, successful teaching, professional engagement, and service to the community. Experience working in a law school tax clinic, while not a prerequisite for the position, is highly desirable.


Part of a comprehensive research university, the College of Law is a dynamic urban-centered law school located in the heart of Atlanta with approximately 650 full- and part-time law students.  The Low-Income Taxpayer Clinic provides legal controversy resolution services to low-income individuals who have disputes with the Internal Revenue Service. The Clinic has been operating year-round as a principal component of the College of Laws experiential learning program. It has a case load of over 300, and it has represented over 4000 low-income individuals since its founding approximately 22 years ago.

Applications are encouraged from candidates who would diversify the faculty.  Georgia State University, a unit of the University System of Georgia, is an equal opportunity educational institution and an equal opportunity/affirmative action employer.  As required by Georgia State University, an appointment is contingent upon successful completion of a criminal background investigation.
