This is a part-time, contract position. Applicants will be considered until the position is filled, but it is preferred that applications be submitted by May 1, 2019.

Adjunct professors in the Entrepreneurship Law Clinic work directly with students to represent qualified low-income clients interested in forming corporations, limited liability companies, partnerships, joint ventures and sole proprietors. Our services include client engagement, assistance with entity selection, preparing and filing formation documents, and drafting governing documents such as bylaws, limited liability company agreements, partnership and shareholder agreements, and meeting minutes. We also help entrepreneurs and micro-businesses with leases, non-disclosure agreements, customer services contracts, and other common business agreements. Our adjunct professors provide guidance to students, attend client meetings, review and provide feedback on work product, and help students reflect on and improve their performance. 

A companion seminar class is taught by a full-time faculty member that adjunct professors are welcome to attend. Our clinical offices occupy a floor in the Star-Telegram building at 7th and Throckmorton in downtown Fort Worth. Parking is provided.

Students participate in the Entrepreneurship Law Clinic during the fall and spring terms (from August – December and January – May, respectively). In between terms, our adjunct professors monitor applications and address issues that were not or will not be addressed during a regular term. A typical workload involves 3-4 students. Preference will be given to candidates that can spend time with students during business hours.

Successful applicants will:

  • Have a J.D. from an ABA-accredited law school;
  • Have excellent analytical and writing skills;
  • Have practiced corporate transactional law for at least 5 years;
