The Lawyering Skills Program is sponsoring a summer clerkship opportunity, placing approximately five second-year UW law students in summer clerkship positions with selected law firms in small-to-mid-sized Wisconsin communities. The program does NOT place students in the Madison or Milwaukee metropolitan areas. Students will earn $15/hr and will receive additional money to defray living expenses. If selected for placement, students must take the Lawyering Skills Course during the 2011 Spring semester. Professors Ralph Cagle and Gretchen Viney of the Lawyering Skills Program oversee the program. The day-to-day mentoring and supervision will be provided by the selected law firms. Pick up an application in the Career Services Office or in the Lawyering Skills Office - September 30, 2010 is the deadline by which to apply. For more information, please refer to the posting in the Symplicity Job Bank.
