Law Clerk Program, Summer 2020
The program begins with a mandatory two-day skills training. Law clerks are exposed to the major legal problems facing low-income families and learn the advocacy skills necessary to work in public interest law. Following orientation, law clerks report to the assigned offices where they may be given additional training. Law clerks are tasked with a variety of responsibilities, including interviewing clients, drafting memos, working with community groups, and conducting legal research for cases on various issues facing the community. Will receive guidance from a mentor attorney in their office. The mentor attorney will lead the law clerk throughout the summer and supervise their legal work. Will also have opportunities to work with other legal advocates and staff over the course of the program. Law clerks may spend a portion of their time working on a special project or community outreach event. Projects may include designing community education seminars, outreach, conducting in-depth research on a substantive law topic, or creating written materials for clients or staff use. 1Ls and 2Ls will be considered.
