Sarah CarverAlaska Legal Services Corp (Anchorage, AK)NW Public Service Career Fair / SeattleAlaska Legal Services is participating in morning Table Talk and afternoon interviews.

TITLE: Legal Intern: Pro Bono Training Academy
SUPERVISOR: Project Coordinator; Rural Office Supervising Attorney

Alaska Legal Services Intern Program Overview:
Alaska presents unique and extreme access issues that hamper legal services offered to eligible clients. Approximately half of Alaskans live outside the Anchorage metropolitan area, many in towns or villages accessible only by small plane or boat. Less than 10% of the state has a road system. ALSC has offices in hub communities, but many of our clients live in remote villages. For example, the Bethel ALSC office serves residents of 56 small villages in the Yukon-Kuskokwim region that are not connected to the hub community of Bethel by any road system.

Most rural residents do not have easy access to the court or to the private bar. A large majority do not have consistent internet access—and thus cannot access pro se materials posted online. Attorneys are disproportionately located in the Anchorage area. Of the 2445 attorneys in active practice who reside in Alaska, 1889 (77%) of those live in the third judicial district, which roughly corresponds to the Anchorage metropolitan area. In contrast, 67% of the poverty population in Alaska lives outside Anchorage. About 29% of Alaska’s residents lack ready access to services of the justice system, including physical access to a courthouse or law office. Alaskan courts are accustomed to litigants and attorneys appearing by telephone, but court rules that accommodate our unique geography do not help pro se litigants find pro bono attorneys. These access to justice issues make outreach and community coordination especially important in rural Alaska.

Alaska Legal Services created the Pro Bono Training Academy (PBTA)—a training system for pro bono attorneys. The PBTA has three components: 1) designing comprehensive distance learning webinars on five specific topics faced by the rural Alaska poverty community (public benefits, bankruptcy, housing issues, elder law, and consumer issues); 2) creating a mentorship program matching newer pro bono attorneys with more experienced mentors; and 3) working with law students who will both assist in the PBTA and represent rural clients.

The selected law student will work on the PBTA design (approx. 25% of time) as well as assist and represent clients (approx. 75% of time).

MAJOR DUTIES:
1. Legal and factual case research
2. Interview prospective clients
3. Assist Pro Bono Training Academy in curriculum design and research including webinars, brief bank, and website design
4. Involvement with community education
5. Supervised litigation before courts and agencies (2L), draft client legal documents and pleadings (1L & 2L)
6. Other duties may arise or be assigned by the Supervising Attorney

EDUCATION REQUIRED:
Successful completion of 1-2 years of accredited law school.

SPECIAL REQUIREMENTS:
Special interest in poverty law and/or Native American & Alaska Native law preferred. Computer proficiency required, any experience with web design or usage of webinar platforms a bonus. Must be able to deal with difficult clients and handle problems as they arise in a professional and positive manner. Familiarity with cross-cultural situations desirable. Students interested in post-graduate practice in Alaska encouraged to apply.

Interns may also carry their own caseloads, and represent misdemeanor clients on changes of plea and sentencings. Civil law interns (child abuse and neglect proceedings, juvenile delinquency proceedings, and mental health commitment proceedings) are responsible for interviewing, researching, witness preparation and courtroom presentations while under the supervision of an attorney.

QLaw Foundation Sher Kung Summer Fellowship 2017: eQuality Project at CCYJ.

PROJECT BACKGROUND
The QLaw Foundation Sher Kung Summer Fellow will be responsible for supporting the eQuality Project at the Center for Children & Youth Justice (CCYJ). The eQuality Project is a collaborative effort to ensure Washington’s child welfare and juvenile justice systems better serve lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and questioning/queer youth in their care, collect meaningful data on the needs, experiences and outcomes of LGBTQ youth, and divert LGBTQ youth from homelessness.

In partnership with over 200 stakeholders across Washington, eQuality has developed the Protocol for Safe & Affirming Care. The Protocol is a guide for professionals, volunteers, and caregivers in Washington’s child welfare and juvenile justice systems to better serve LGBTQ youth in their care. In 2017, eQuality will begin a pilot implementation of the Protocol. For more information, please visit: http://ccyj.org/initiatives/equality/

POSITION SUMMARY
A critical component of implementing the Protocol is providing resources and support for judicial officers in juvenile court and attorneys representing youth. The primary task of the Fellow will be to develop new and refine existing resources for these judicial officers and attorneys. The Fellow will:
• Survey judicial officers and attorneys to identify the most common legal issues LGBTQ system-involved youth face;
• Conduct research on statutes, case law, regulations, and legal strategies surrounding those issues; and
• Use this focused research to develop a CLE curriculum, bench card, legal memos, and/or sample pleadings.

The Fellow may also support other pilot partners--including juvenile court administrators, probation and detention counselors, social workers, and court appointed special advocates—by assisting the eQuality Project Manager in consulting and providing technical assistance on emerging practices for better supporting LGBTQ youth, structural changes that benefit LGBTQ youth, and the collection and analyses of data. Note that the eQuality Project does not provide direct representation or services to youth.

ESSENTIAL FUNCTIONS
The Fellow will be responsible for the following:
• Outreach. Contact judicial officers sitting in juvenile court (or those who have recently exited), defense attorneys responsible for supervising juvenile and dependency units, and other defense attorneys who represent youth and families to interview and/or survey them about common issues impacting LGBTQ youth for which there is a lack of clarity in the law and/or guidance on legal strategies (e.g. conflicts between parental rights and a youth’s right to self-determination and access to hormone treatment).

• Legal research. Conduct research in response to the specific legal questions developed, including a review of Washington statutes, regulations, case law, settlement agreements, and potentially a review of legal authority from other states.

• Legal writing. Develop useful tools for judicial officers and attorneys, such as a bench card, sample pleadings, legal memos, and/or a CLE/CJE curriculum.

• Other. Support pilot implementation of the Protocol by attending meetings with pilot partners and stakeholders, presenting on research, attending events and trainings, responding to requests for information, and/or participating in similar efforts as needed.

ELIGIBILITY & QUALIFICATIONS
The Fellowship is open to law students with:
• A commitment to improving the lives of LGBTQ youth.
• Strong legal research skills.
• Strong communication skills (verbal and written).
• A strong team orientation.
• Experience in and/or knowledge of child welfare and/or juvenile justice systems (Preferred).

LOCATION & TIMELINE
The Fellow will work at CCYJ’s offices in Pioneer Square during normal business hours. The Fellow is expected to commit to working at least 10 weeks, full-time during summer 2017.

COMPENSATION
The Fellow will receive $7,500 in compensation.

1L,2L,3L,4L,LLM,NW Consortium - 1L,NW Consortium - 2L,NW Consortium - 3L,NW Consortium - 4LDaniel GrossCover Letter,Other Documents,Unofficial Transcript,Writing SampleInterested applicants should submit a cover letter, a legal writing sample that has not been substantially edited by someone else, and at least two (but preferably more) academic/professional references to Daniel Gross, Senior Staff Attorney at Daniel@NoHLA.org. As much of our work is directed to policymakers and the public, it is helpful to get a sense of applicants' communication skills outside of traditional legal analysis. If you can, please also submit a writing sample directed to a non-attorney audience; this is helpful, but not required.Strong writing skills and oral presentation skills are required of all law clerks. NoHLA generally requires law clerks who work for us during the school year to commit to working 10 hours/week for a minimum of one academic term. Summer clerks are generally expected to work with us full-time for 10 weeks. Fluency in a language other than English, significant experience dealing directly with diverse client populations, experience or training in public benefits, insurance or administrative law, and experience or training in related disciplines (e.g., health economics, public health, legislative/regulatory analysis, social science research, etc.) are plusses. NoHLA provides training in the specific requirements of the position and attorney supervision on all assignments, but an ability to work independently (and ask for direction when appropriate) is critical. NoHLA expects law clerks to begin their work with a certain level of training and ability. As a result, we generally do not take law clerks who have not yet completed their second year in law school, unless they have relevant professional or volunteer experience that demonstrates needed skills and competency.

-Bobbin SinghOregon Innocence Project (Portland, Oregon)NW Public Service Career Fair / SeattleRESUME Collection onlyOregon Innocence Project is participating in Resume Collection only.

OIP offers students an opportunity to investigate and litigate claims of actual innocence on behalf of Oregon State prisoners under the supervision of OIP’s Legal Director, Steve Wax. Our goal: (1) educate students about wrongful convictions; (2) teach students about post-conviction practice in state and federal courts; (3) train students to conduct the appropriate case investigation, legal research, case management, and litigation for clients who have viable claims of innocence; and (4) provide a learning environment where we can continue to develop as thoughtful, reflective, and skilled professionals.

The responsibilities of an OIP student are incredibly varied. You will assume the roles of advocate, counselor, and investigator. One of the most time consuming (and important) tasks when handling a case is tracking down and managing necessary information, evidence, and paperwork. This requires persistent phone calls, follow-up letters, and patience, as you navigate your way through the criminal justice system’s bureaucracy. The success of OIP is dependent upon your tenacity, creativity, and commitment.

Due to the nature of the work, students must commit to working with OIP for full calendar year (June - May): Full-time (40 hrs/wk) during the summer, beginning June 1, and part-time (15hrs/wk) through the academic year through an internship, externship, or clinic.

To practice law is a privilege. To practice law as a Marine Officer is a distinction reserved for the few who have what it takes, mentally, morally, and physically, to become a leader of Marines. If you prove yourself worthy, you will not only serve in the field of law, but you will serve your country as an officer in the United States Marine Corps.

After successfully completing law school and Officer Candidates School, you will have proven to yourself and to the Corps that you have what it takes to be an officer and judge advocate among the world’s greatest warriors.

As a Marine Corps Judge Advocate, you will immediately be given the responsibilities of maintaining your own caseload and advising Marines on legal issues. Additionally, the training you receive as a Marine Corps Officer will prepare you to be a leader from day one. While most new civilian attorneys are relegated to research duty on cases tried by others, you will be building you skills and acquiring real legal experience in the courtroom.

As a Judge advocate you may serve as a trial attorney working with Military Police and Naval Criminal Investigative Service. You may also argue appellate cases before the Navy-Marine Corps Court of Criminal Appeals or the United States Court of Appeals for the Armed Forces.

As you gain experience, you may transition to other areas of law such as Civil Law, and Legal Assistance or act as in-house counsel.
