2021 Clerkship
The law clerk will play a crucial role in building the power of low-income communities of color through community partnership lawyering model and advancing racial and economic justice through policy advocacy, enforcement actions, and capacity-building. Each law clerk is assigned to a supervising attorney on one of our two teams (Education Equity and Metropolitan Equity) who has primary responsibility for giving constructive feedback in a positive learning environment. Law clerks on the Metropolitan Equity Team support attorneys and community groups across the Bay Area to win investment and development that meets the needs of the region’s low-income residents and workers. Public Advocates, along with community, regional, and statewide partners, works to secure more affordable housing near jobs and transit, robust and affordable local transit service, investment without displacement, healthy and safe communities, access to quality jobs, and greater power for low-income communities of color in local and regional decision-making. Legal research and writing, policy memos and reports, client communication and leadership development, community training and resource development, coalition-building, data analysis, and document review. In addition to the substantive legal advocacy experiences, the Legal Clerkship Program includes a number of brown bag sessions, visits to legislative and state agency meetings in Sacramento, team-building events, meetings with community partners and other activities intended to complement the day-to-day work of our law clerks.
