Legal Clinic Fellow

The Organization

TIRN is a legal services program operated through the TU College of Law Legal Clinic and funded by the George Kaiser Family Foundation. TIRN was launched in 2008 to address the shortage of attorneys working on behalf of the traditionally underserved noncitizen population of the greater Tulsa area. TIRN has three primary goals: 1) create and train a network of local attorneys to provide pro bono representation to vulnerable immigrants; 2) provide community education on legal rights and immigration remedies; and 3) provide direct legal representation in immigration proceedings to the greater Tulsa area noncitizen population. TIRN complements the work of students and faculty of the Immigrant Rights Project, a clinical legal education program of the College of Law.

The Position

The Tulsa Immigrant Resource Network (“TIRN”) seeks a Legal Clinic Fellow to begin October 1, 2017. The Legal Clinic Fellowship is a full-time, paid, two-year attorney position which serves as a bridge from academic studies to the practice of law by providing training and mentoring to a new attorney in a law firm setting. Under the supervision of the TIRN Director, the Legal Clinic Fellow will represent Tulsa-area noncitizens in immigration proceedings, present at community education events, participate in law and practice trainings and assist in building a pro bono network of Tulsa-area attorneys committed to representing non-citizens in immigration proceedings.
