Clinical Instructor, Housing Clinic
Harvard Law School
The Clinical Instructor (CI) will play a key role-as litigator, strategic partner, and clinical supervisor-in the operation of a newly expanded medical-legal partnership between the Legal Services Center (LSC) of Harvard Law School and the Brigham & Women's Hospital ("BWH"). The CI will join LSC's Housing Clinic, which provides free legal representation to low-income tenants at risk of eviction, with an overarching mission of preventing homelessness and increasing access to safe housing. The new medical-legal partnership builds upon the model of LSC's existing and highly successful medical-legal partnership with BWH-known as the Passageway Health-Law Collaborative, which focuses on issues of intimate partner abuse and family law. The new medical-legal partnership will extend this collaborative model by focusing on the urgent housing needs of BWH patients through close cooperation of the Housing Clinic with BWH's Social Care team.
The CI will be responsible for working with other teaching staff in the Housing Clinic to operate the medical-legal partnership with BWH, focusing on representing individuals experiencing homelessness, those at risk of eviction, and those living in unsafe housing conditions.
