The Workers’ Rights Clinic hosts free weekly clinics to assist low-income community members with employment-related legal issues. Students will conduct one-on-one, face-to-face interviews with clients, and then complete research alongside an attorney to provide the client legal advice. Students can expect to encounter and become familiar with a broad range of legal issues, such as employment discrimination, worker’s compensation, and workplace torts. Students will also gain skills in client interactions, issue spotting and legal research. Prior to every session, a visiting attorney will give a lecture on a specific topic in employment law. Dinner is provided.
We are excited to find another great group of students who are dedicated to helping people and putting their legal knowledge to use in the real world.
Time Commitment: Students will be split up into two groups, so that each student will commit to working every other Thursday evening (biweekly). Sessions start at 5:30 and run approximately three hours. If student counselors ever need to miss a session, it is their responsibility to find another student to swap weeks with them.
Supervision: Students will receiving training from and be supervised by attorneys from Legal Aid at Work.
