    This workshop is intended to prepare those contemplating a career in clinical teaching for going on “the market.” The prospect of going on the market whether for the first time or having done so previously, is particularly intimidating in this environment of uncertainty for law schools and almost exclusively remote engagement. The market has changed significantly in recent years and continues to be dynamic due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Many clinicians’ job searches span years and a great deal of hiring now occurs outside the formal AALS faculty recruitment system. There is no longer one “right path” to achieving success. Nor has the measure of success remained stagnant, as clinicians find themselves in a variety of different types of positions – temporary, permanent, fellowships, in clinics with hard or soft money, some with security and many without … and the list goes on and on. Our goals for this workshop are to demystify the process; to fill in the gaps for experienced candidates or those who come from well-established and resourced fellowship programs; to inform and advise those who are considering entering the market without the benefit of such resources; to expose participants to clinicians who have successfully navigated the market; and to provide information that will best position all candidates to secure the clinical teaching jobs they seek.
