Post-Graduate Fellowship
The Fellows gain invaluable hands-on legal experience by working on complex and diverse projects with AERC Department attorneys. Work on a broad range of projects, including advice and counsel, transactional, regulatory, and litigation projects. The litigation and regulatory work includes observing and supporting attorney court appearances, preparing legal opinions in response to clients' requests, conducting research and analysis, and drafting motions, briefs, and substantive legal correspondence. Transactional work will introduce participants to a broad range of issues, including contract negotiation, municipal procurement issues, and sustainable design; it involves working with federal and other local agencies, as well as construction pre-litigation dispute resolution. Participants will gain first-hand experience in every phase of the preparation and drafting of contracts, including discussion with client departments about how to structure a transaction to meet the clients’ objectives, identification of business risks for client consideration, contract drafting, and negotiation with counsel for the City's contractors. Will participate in negotiations and Client advising meetings, conduct research and analysis to draft dispositive motions on constitutional or procedural issues of law, and - utilizing an Illinois Supreme Court Rule 711 license - appear on behalf of the City in Court or before Administrative Tribunals. Law students are considered.
