The University of Houston Law Center (UHLC) invites applications for a non-tenure track clinical assistant or associate faculty position in the Legal Aid Clinic (LAC)-Homeless Youth (LGBTQ emphasis) program for the academic year 2016-2017.  The non-tenure track appointment will have a one-year probationary contract period with no presumption of renewal.  However, based upon continued positive evaluations of the appointee, the position may lead to a second and third one-year contract period followed by a multi-year contract.  The initial salary range for this position is expected to be $58,000 to $85,000 for a nine-month academic year, but the precise salary will be negotiated based on the candidate's experience and on compensation paid or offered to professors in comparable positions at comparable law schools.

Individuals appointed to ranks in the LAC faculty must, at a minimum, hold a J.D. degree from an ABA-accredited law school.  Qualified candidates must have strong academic credentials and substantive practice experience, which may include judicial clerkship experience.  Strong preference will be given to candidates with experience teaching in Legal Aid Clinic.
