Clinical Professor, Chicago-Kent

Job Details


The C-K Law Group of Chicago-Kent College of Law, Illinois Institute of Technology, is now accepting applications for a full-time in-house clinical faculty member from accomplished  attorneys who have an established practice in one of these areas:  Plaintiffs Employment Law, Intellectual Property, Business/Commercial Transactions, or Criminal Defense.

The successful candidate already has a robust client base. As a clinical professor, primary duties include teaching enrolled law student interns experiential lawyering skills, supervising their assigned client case work, and mentoring them through the myriad of associated professional duties and issues. A Juris Doctor from an ABA approved law school is required as well as an active Illinois License, or ability to be admitted by motion to the Illinois Bar.

The salary for this position will be based, in part, on the attorney’s experience, but a significant determining factor will also be the amount of fees the attorney is able to generate from the clients they represent.  The position carries University benefits including, but not limited to, medical, dental, group life insurance, and a retirement plan

This is an excellent opportunity for a talented attorney who wishes to teach and practice in a unique in-house clinical education setting.  Preference will be given to candidates who have been admitted to the Illinois Bar for a minimum of five (5) years, have a strong background in the above areas of law, and have some experience educating law students in the practice of law.  Applicants should have strong academic credentials and a commitment to educating the next generation of lawyers, as well as a desire to be part of a collegial group of attorneys and faculty at the law school.
