Students who are eligible for a legal intern certificate will have ample opportunities to appear in court and present an oral argument.

The Expungement Clinic will be hiring one paid student to start at the end of May.  Job duties of this student will involve training new volunteers, communicating with the Court, various community organizations, and clients.  The student must be willing to commit 5 hours per week to the clinic.  Please submit resumes to russel.nichols@gmail.com no later than April 25th.  In the email, please include the date of your last final.
