Clinicians are increasingly engaging scholarship in addition to managing their caseloads while engaging in extensive service to their students, clients, and communities. Post-tenure is a time when all law professors, not just clinicians, begin to reflect and plan their careers. This can raise a myriad of questions regarding effectiveness as a clinical professor with students and clients, career changes, pursuing fellowships that further scholarly and clinical interests, and balancing the hefty load of engaged scholarship and work with students and clients.
The diverse panel of recently tenured clinical professors includes professors who have been deeply engaged in straddling the clinical and doctrinal dichotomies of academia. Each panelist will use the method of storytelling to engage audience members in thinking through issues that are common to many in legal academia, but surface more predominately during post-tenure moments. After the panelists reflect on the Arc of their Careers, Leadership Coach Susan Jones, through an interactive session, will educate participants on the role of a coach and engage a guided reflection to assist them in envisioning the arc of their own careers while critically engaging with some of the issues raised through the panelists’ sharing their personal journeys.
