Summer Clerk 2014 Application Available


ILG_Logo1Learn for social justice.  Advocate for social justice.  Litigate for social justice.


Each summer, ILG sponsors a summer clerk to work with the firm in advancing the human rights of immigrants and refugees.  The clerkship provides an opportunity for law students to work directly with clients and get hands-on experience with impact litigation.  Past clerks worked on nationwide-precedent setting cases, engaged in civil rights litigation on detainers, represented asylum-seekers and special immigrant juveniles, and provided inspiring community-education workshops on going beyond just knowing one’s rights. Reports from our former clerks can be found here. ILG Summer Clerks have been involved in litigation nationwide including briefing before the U.S. Supreme Court, the U.S. Courts of Appeals, the Board of Immigration Appeals, and developing practice guidance for attorneys across the country.

The Summer Clerk is a paid, temporary position lasting at least 10 weeks.  The start date is usually in mid-June.  The length of the position and start dates are flexible.  Clerks can expect to work full-time.  Housing and moving expenses are the clerk’s responsibility.

Deadline for applications is November 23, 2013 at midnight, PST.  All application details available here.
