Internship Program, Summer 2018 The intern will work in the Employment Law Unit. Law students do client intakes, represent clients in unemployment hearings, wage and hour claims, tax controversies with the IRS/DOR and Tax Court, and for the Criminal Offender Record Information and Reentry Project described below. In addition to individual case work, student assistance is also needed with community legal education, on-going administrative and legislative advocacy on exciting policy initiatives as well as pending law suits. Fluency in Spanish, Cantonese, Portuguese, Haitian Creole and Vietnamese or other languages is particularly valued as is the completion of courses on evidence, administrative advocacy, and employment law, but none of these prerequisites are required. A minimum of 20 hours a week is preferred for those students wishing to represent clients in unemployment hearings.
