May 16, 2022: Religious Freedom Clinic Application Deadline (Fall 2022 and Spring 2023)

As a reminder, the application deadline for the Religious Freedom Clinic (offered in Fall 2022 or Spring 2023) is Monday, May 16, 2022.

Admission to the Religious Freedom Clinic is by permission of the Clinic Director, Josh McDaniel. Students should submit an application to jmcdaniel@law.harvard.edu by May 16, 2022. (Applications after that date will be considered if additional seats become available.) The application should be in a combined PDF that includes a resume (with expected graduation date) and short (250 words or less) statement of interest describing the student’s reasons for applying to the clinic, relevant coursework, and which semesters (fall and/or spring) the student is applying for.

The clinic provides students a hands-on, supervised experience representing a diverse group of clients in legal matters raising First Amendment and religious liberty issues. As a pro bono program dedicated to building bridges in service to those in need, the clinic focuses on representing members of minority faiths, the vulnerable, and those who serve or support them in our pluralistic society. This includes helping the imprisoned, victims of workplace discrimination, and those facing obstacles in ministering to migrants, the poor, and their communities.
