Summit School Legal Clinic has a unique 1L law student fellowship program where incoming law students can apply for paid positions working in the Clinic with the administrative team to administrate the law practice of the Clinic. This is a terrific opportunity for new law students to work in a multi-departmental law firm on campus, in teams with other law students, under the direct supervision and guidance of the law professors directing the Clinic.
Students interact with clients, parties, opposing counsel, other clinic students, professors, referring agencies, and community partners – and often serve as the “face and voice of the Clinic.” In addition, they learn or hone law office management skills, communication skills, and legal skills. It offers students the opportunity to work closely with one or more clinics of their choice.
