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.

Apply immediately at ... 6701508758. Interviews will begin soon and will continue until the positions are filled.
