Profile

Volunteer Law Clerk The students gain invaluable hands-on legal experience by working on complex and diverse projects with Appeals attorneys. The office involves participants in every aspect of work: case conferences to discuss briefs, moot courts, and meetings. Students are assigned straightforward cases to handle by themselves. This includes reading the record, researching the issues, and drafting the brief. Students receive detailed feedback on their drafts. Work is assigned to these volunteers commensurate with their abilities, but it always includes a wide range of issues and projects, direct involvement in the cases, and ample feedback. 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.
