Hiring for Summer 2018
The clinical law program plans to hire a number of UChicago Law students to work in the various clinics in the summer of 2018. Paid summer positions will be open for the following clinics:
- Abrams Environmental Law Clinic
- Civil Rights Clinic: Police Accountability
- Criminal and Juvenile Justice Project Clinic
- Employment Law Clinic
- Exoneration Project Clinic
- Federal Criminal Justice Clinic
- Housing Initiative Clinic
- Innovation Clinic
- Institute for Justice Clinic on Entrepreneurship
- International Human Rights Clinic
- Jenner & Block Supreme Court and Appellate Clinic
- Kirkland & Ellis Corporate Lab Clinic
- Young Center Immigrant Child Advocacy Clinic
Each of these clinics seeks energetic, dedicated and motivated students for these positions. Students selected for the summer program will be assigned to one clinic for the summer and will work on a variety of cases, transactions or other client matters. Students who work in the clinic over the summer are treated as returning clinic students in the fall and may continue with their clinic work during the 2018-19 academic year.
The summer program runs from June 4, 2018 through August 3, 2018, with one week of vacation during that period. Students will receive approximately $5000 in compensation for the summer, payable as wages subject to withholding. Students who work in the clinics during the summer are not eligible for research assistant (RA) positions during the period of the clinic summer program (June 4 - August 3).
An informational meeting for students interested in applying for summer clinic positions was held on January 12, 2018 in Classroom III, starting at 12:15.
Application materials, consisting of a questionnaire, cover letter and resume, may be submitted on-line from January 15th through January 19th, at this link: https://goo.gl/XQJBG7
Interviews will commence as early as January 22nd. Offers will be made shortly thereafter, with subsequent rounds of offers continuing to be made until all positions are filled.
