Students will get a chance to use their legal skills in the real world from interviewing clients all the way to potentially representing the very same clients in settlement conferences before the California Labor Commission.
We look forward to working with a great group of students who love helping people and are committed to addressing income inequality in the Bay Area! What students will be doing:
- Interviewing clients & intaking claims
- Investigating claims
- Researching employment law issues
- Drafting documents (claims, demand letters, etc)
- Attending and representing clients at settlement conferences and hearings
Many of the clients the Wage Justice Clinic serves are immigrant workers. Many clients speak Spanish, Mandarin, Cantonese, or other languages other than English. We encourage students who speak a second language to join WJC.
Supervision: Students will receive training from and be supervised by attorneys at Legal Aid at Work.
- Estimated number of hours per semester: 30-35 hours.
- Estimated number of hours per week: Once per month, for ~9 hours spread across two days.
- Days and times for any weekly commitments: One Thursday per month from 5-8pm, and one Friday per month from 9AM-5PM (consecutive days).
- Trainings: 4-5 hours of remote training around the start of the semester, potentially split over multiple days.
