Summer Associate Program: Re-Entry Project
The Re-Entry Summer Associate will work with the re-entry team to represent clients with re-entry cases and to draft a statewide resource for advocate use in record-sealing and certificates of qualification for employment.
Specifically, the summer associate will, under the supervision of an attorney:
- Search dockets
- Interview clients
- Draft memos, pleadings, and correspondence
- Appear in court on behalf of clients (if possible)
- Draft a resource guide with current case law and the relevant statutes for use by advocates in the re-entry field
- Attend re-entry events and coalition meetings
Skills, Experience, & Interests:
No prior experience is required; however, an interest in poverty law, criminal law, and/or the re-entry movement is helpful.
