Students who participate in Volunteer Lawyers Project (VLP’s) 35-hour week-long remote spring break project receive a full day of training to prepare them for attending legal clinics in housing, family law, guardianship, and debt collection. Students will have the opportunity to work on unit-specific projects that support VLP’s program. At our virtual and court-based clinics, students will assist with legal triage and screen clients for eligibility, draft legal documents and shadow an attorney who provides legal advice. Students will provide support to the attorneys and paralegals with various case management tasks, including case updates and client follow-up, and some data entry.
VLP will accept two interns per law school
Applications are due by Friday January 26, 2024, at 4PM
Internships will be virtual except for a few in-person clinics
