LSC Summer Fellows Program
Program Dates: May 28 – August 2, 2013
Go to the LSC website for more information on the Fellows Program.
For program inquiries please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Students interested in being a summer fellow at the Center must commit to work 35-40 hours per week for the duration of the program. The program cannot accommodate students who wish to split with another summer internship.
Supervision for students working at the Center is provided by one of our Clinical Instructors, chosen for their skills and abilities as practitioners and for their ability to teach, mentor, instruct and guide students through early learning experiences. Each Clinical Instructor has a caseload in one of the Center’s areas of practice which is shared with the Instructor’s supervisees.
Students at the Center interview people seeking advice or assistance; undertake direct assistance and responsibility to clients; engage in investigation and, often, formal discovery; counsel and advise clients; plan and strategize to achieve the best results for their clients; prepare pleadings for courts or applications to administrative agencies; and research case specific legal issues. Some students appear before courts on contested motions, preliminary matters or assist in a trial; others will represent clients before administrative agencies.
