Summer 2018 Law Clerk The candidate must be interested in doing meaningful litigation and policy work on behalf of the public and the environment. Clerks’ responsibilities vary each year but typically include performing legal research, drafting pleadings, attending hearings, drafting comments and petitions to administrative agencies, and supporting attorneys in litigation. Clerks are also expected to do minor administrative tasks as needed. Law clerks work closely with attorneys and staff, and are able to gain practical litigation and policy experience in a small nonprofit setting. Must have completed at least one year of law school and be available to work full-time in our Portland, OR office for ten weeks. Demonstrated commitment to practicing public interest law related to food, agriculture, or the environment is a plus. Relevant coursework in administrative and environmental law are strongly preferred.
