In addition, the Remington Center's Economic Justice Institute will begin recruiting student applicants for its summer 2009 civil clinical projects: the Family Court Assistance Project (FCAP), the Neighborhood Law Project, and the Consumer Law Clinic.
Altogether, these clinical projects provide full-time summer clinical opportunities for about 70 law students. Students in all of the projects will enroll full-time during the 2009 summer session, and continue part-time during the 2009-10 academic year.
To kick things off, the Remington Center's students and clinical faculty will discuss the clinics at two informal "coffee and donuts" sessions. The sessions are scheduled as follows. All interested 1Ls are invited to come to these sessions, learn about the clinics, and enjoy coffee and donuts:
- Economic Justice Institute Clinics: Tuesday, October 28th from 8:30-9:30 in Lubar Commons
Students will be accepted into the summer 2009 clinics through a competitive application process. As part of the process, students will be expected to attend small-group information sessions and/or participate in individual interviews. Students will then submit a written application by November 19, 2008. The Center's clinical faculty will review the applications and notify students, prior to the winter break, about whether they have been accepted into one of the 2009 clinics. Specifics of the application process will be provided during the classroom presentations.
