Boston University School of Law is hiring a part-time adjunct instructor to teach the Law School's Health Justice Practicum and seminar in the Fall of 2023 and the Spring of 2024. The Practicum is a policy-focused medical-legal partnership (MLP) with a medical clinic that provides integrated obstetrics and addiction medicine care for low-income pregnant and parenting people at all stages of recovery from substance use disorders (SUDs). The instructor will teach the course's one semester seminar and supervise systems-change projects that identify and address how law and policy affect pregnant and parenting people with SUDs, particularly those who are Black Indigenous, and/or Latinx.
In addition to ongoing projects, the instructor will have the freedom to identify and undertake new projects. The instructor will collaborate with the Associate Dean for Experiential Education and be able to consult with the founding instructor.
The ideal candidate for this position will have prior teaching experience, be a skilled supervisor, and have substantial experience representing clients involved with the family regulation/child welfare system, working with people experiencing SUDs, and/or interprofessional collaborative practice in MLPs.
