The Pacific Legal Foundation, a major conservative/libertarian public interest law firm in California, has some openings for summer clerks. Here’s Tim Sandefur’s post on the subject:
If you’re a law student who’s looking to spend the summer advancing freedom, please consider a clerkship at the Pacific Legal Foundation. PLF’s law clerks help us with research, drafting pleadings, making presentations to the public, and all sorts of tasks that are critical to our mission of rescuing liberty. And many of our clerks have gone on to important careers in public interest law, either here or in many of our allied organizations. Clerkship positions are unpaid positions — but Pacific Legal Foundation’s law clerks don’t sit in a back room redacting discovery documents for three months — they make a real difference in real people’s lives, defending private property rights, economic freedom, racial equality, sensible environmental policies, and learning more about the constitutional and philosophical framework of freedom.
Applications are due March 1. Applicants must submit a cover letter, resume, writing sample, and references to Tawnda Elling, Hiring Committee Coordinator, by email (firstname.lastname@example.org), fax (916) 419-7747, or mail 930 G Street, Sacramento, CA 95814.
Applicants are also urged to check out the IHS Koch Summer Fellows program, which can help cover living costs for the summer, and the IJ Law Student Conference, a fantastic weekend crash course on the basics of public interest law.
