We are excited to announce that BU Law is hiring a Lecturer and Clinical Instructor to serve as the first Assistant Director of the BU/MIT Technology Law Clinic! Applications received on or before April 10, 2020 will be given full consideration.
The Clinic is part of a unique collaboration between BU Law and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and is part of BU Law’s Entrepreneurship, Intellectual Property, and Cyberlaw Program. BU Law believes that the cultural and social diversity of our faculty, staff, and students is vitally important to the distinction and excellence of our academic programs. To that end, we are especially eager to hear from applicants who support our institutional commitment to BU as an inclusive, equitable, and diverse community.
The Clinic represents current students at MIT and BU on matters related to their technology-related research, advocacy, and innovation. The Clinic frequently advises clients in the areas of data privacy, intellectual property, computer access laws, media law, and technology regulatory compliance. Clinic faculty help law students assist clients in counseling, pre-litigation, and transactional settings, and possibly also in litigation matters, including response to cease-and-desist letters and litigation under open records laws. Clients often present novel questions of law in emerging areas of technology, including artificial intelligence and machine learning, encryption and cryptography, and novel methods of online platform scrutiny and analysis.
The Assistant Director will assist and advise the Clinic Director in all aspects of the operation and development of the program. Their primary responsibilities will be to supervise and train law students with client matters, teach and develop curricular materials for the Clinic’s year-long seminar, and assist the Clinic Director in the strategic growth and development of the Clinic.
