On Wednesday, October 28th at 6:00pm ET,  APABA-DC moderated a virtual panel discussion with four exceptional clinical law professors of APA descent on how they worked to achieve important roles in clinical legal education. The panelists work in a variety of legal subjects and bring expertise in immigration law, transactional law, and civil rights law to their roles. The virtual panel discussion was held on Zoom and began with a panel discussion with the panelists to discuss their career paths and experiences that prepared them for the role, what clinical teaching is, what the clinical job search process looks like, and what tips they have for those interested in becoming clinical law professors.  We also addressed issues of diversity and inclusion in legal academia. Finally, we closed with a Q&A session. 


The panel consisted of the following distinguished clinical law professors:

  • Professor Nermeen Arastu, Associate Professor of Law & Co-Director of the Immigrant & Non-Citizen Rights Clinic, Non-Citizen Rights Clinic, City University of New York School of Law
  • Professor Ranjana Natarajan, Clinical Professor and Director of Civil Rights Clinic, University of Texas at Austin School of Law
  • Professor Reena Parikh, Assistant Clinical Professor and Director of Civil Rights Clinic, Boston College Law School
  • Professor Carlos M. Teuscher, Assistant Clinical Professor of Law and Director of Transactional Clinic, Suffolk University Law School
