Paid Summer Position - Civil Rights & Transparency Clinic Student Attorney/ Associate

Post by Clinics »

Civil Rights & Transparency Clinic Student Attorney/ Associate

We Litigate for the Public Interest: We are a litigation clinic focused on protecting and expanding civil rights and transparent government. Our mission:
  • Civil Rights & Liberties: We advance justice by protecting individual civil rights and civil liberties, through litigation and broader “movement lawyering” advocacy
  • Transparency: We press for more transparency in government, which is essential to meaningful public accountability and democratic oversight
Job Description: We’re hiring up to two summer student attorneys to work directly with our Clinic’s supervising attorneys on litigation and non-litigation advocacy. These positions are full-time (40 hours) paid positions ($15.00/hour) certified student attorneys under the Clinical Legal Education Program Practice Order. The expectations of the position are:
  • Provide litigation case coverage
  • Review and prepare legal documents, such as client correspondence, discovery, legal research, legal memoranda, etc.
  • Create, update, and maintain case files according to clinic protocol;
  • Conduct potential client intake interviews
  • Make court appearances under the student practice rules in state or federal court or another tribunal
  • Engage in related activities like planning know-your-rights community education or policy research.
Why Work with Us? Our Clinic is designed for you to grow into the attorney you want to be. We offer practical, hands-on experience under the supportive supervision of clinical professors. You can expect to develop critical lawyering skills to become practice-ready. These are skills that are increasingly on the bar exam. You will work on cutting-edge legal issues and make a positive difference in the public interest. You will walk away with more confidence, a sense of your lawyering identity, and skills an employer will value.

We strongly encourage students from underrepresented backgrounds to apply.
