2013 Summer Law Clerk [pdf]
Law clerks will work closely with legal staff to provide holistic legal services to clients and may assist clients with restraining orders, dissolutions, custody proceedings, immigration applications, estate planning, housing advocacy, eviction defense, elder abuse, tax controversies, and other legal issues. Assignments may include completing legal research and writing, doing client intakes by telephone and in person, conducting client interviews, assisting in our free community legal clinics, preparing pleadings and declarations, trial preparation, and giving presentations in community education and training sessions. If certified, law clerks may represent individuals in court hearings. Preference will be given to applicants who have a demonstrated and continuing commitment to social justice or public interest legal work.
Law clerks are supervised by an assigned staff attorney with oversight by the Supervising Attorney or Managing Attorney in the respective office.

Currently, we have particular need for Tagalog, Mandarin, Cantonese, or Spanish speakers.
