Each summer, ILG sponsors a summer clerk to work with the firm in advancing the human rights of immigrants and refugees. The clerkship provides an opportunity for law students to work directly with clients and get hands-on experience with impact litigation. Past clerks worked on nationwide-precedent setting cases, engaged in civil rights litigation on detainers, represented asylum-seekers and special immigrant juveniles, and provided inspiring community-education workshops on going beyond just knowing one’s rights.

The Summer Clerkship is a paid, temporary position lasting at least 10 weeks. The start date is usually in mid-June. The length of the position and start dates are flexible. Clerks can expect to work full-time. Housing and moving expenses are the clerk’s responsibility.

The deadline for applications is January 29, 2018 at midnight, PST.
