The Legal Aid Society - Employment Law Center, a nonprofit public interest law firm based in San Francisco, is currently interviewing candidates for two summer 2013 clerkship positions in its National Origin, Immigration, and Language Rights Program. The National Origin Program focuses on challenging employment practices that disproportionately impact immigrant workers, particularly including discrimination on the basis of one's immigration status, citizenship, or linguistic characteristics; among other things, it has extensively litigated cases seeking to protect and expand the ability of undocumented workers to seek legal remedies for workplace abuses. Students working with the Program can expect to participate in all aspects of its work, including case development, litigation at the trial and/or appellate levels, and direct services work through the Program's Language Rights Information Line. Interested students should send a cover letter, resume, transcript, three references, and (preferably two) writing samples as soon as possible to Christopher Ho, the Program's director, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
