Legal Skills Instructor


We are seeking attorneys passionate about mentoring other lawyers to join our team of instructors for our growing number of online practical lawyering skills courses.

About Us:

AltaClaro is the leading provider of interactive experiential legal training. Our unique learn-by-doing and feedback model helps new lawyers become practice-ready more quickly, empowering participants from the world’s leading law firms, corporations, and law schools to own their career trajectories while helping enterprises drastically reduce training costs.

Our goal is to make it easy for every new lawyer to get their footing right out of the gate. AltaClaro’s courses take students through three components: 1) watch easily digested lessons at a personalized pace, 2) apply those lessons immediately to solve real world client scenarios, using transaction documents derived from actual deals, and 3) deepen their learning in one-hour, online feedback sessions with an experienced practitioner.

The Role:

We seek dynamic attorneys who are passionate about teaching and mentoring to serve as Legal Skills Instructors for the online feedback session portions of our courses. Our Legal Skills Instructors are highly qualified lawyers in the course practice area who serve as contractors for AltaClaro on a flexible, part-time basis.

We provide our instructors with detailed teaching materials and simulation guides to focus their task on offering feedback and guidance on the exercise, engaging students critically and answering questions, and providing real-world examples that bring life to the pre-made curriculum materials.

All work is fully remote, and instructors set their availability each week with minimal commitment requirements. New instructors should have the capacity to teach at least one hour every other week for 10 weeks (plus 1-2 hours of prep time per teaching hour). Some of our instructors choose to teach much more. Compensation is competitive and includes bonuses for more courses taught; instructors who teach five classes in a 3 month period will make $2250.

Learn more about our current courses at https://www.altaclaro.com/law-firms. Right now, we are especially interested in identifying instructors with experience in real estate, commercial lending transactions, and IP/technology transactions. We are also interested in adding instructors for our courses on contract drafting, securities, M&A, and general corporate transactions.

Preferred candidate qualifications:

  • JD from an accredited U.S. law school
  • Currently practicing (including in-house), with at least 10 years of practice and 5 in a course practice area, ideally at a large law firm (or equivalent)
  • Demonstrated interest / experience in teaching and mentoring
  • Teaching ability (communicates complex topics clearly; connects with learners)
  • Proficiency as a meeting participant on Zoom (we’ll handle the setup, but you should be well-lit and comfortable joining and leading the meeting)
  • Capacity to teach at least one hour every other week for 10 weeks (plus 1-2 hours of prep time per teaching hour)
