The Summer Clerk Program is a 10-week paid internship at Minami Tamaki’s San Francisco office. Our Clerks work primarily on employment litigation, catastrophic injury claims, consumer and antitrust class actions, and business immigration filings. Summer Clerks also receive substantive assignments from the firm’s business transactional group.
Summer Clerks perform extensive legal research and writing, and receive hands-on experience in case evaluation and management, discovery practice, and trial preparation. Summer Clerks also have the opportunity to contribute to the firm’s social justice work with numerous bar associations and community organizations.
The firm is seeking highly motivated and detail-oriented second year law students who are genuinely interested in plaintiff-side civil litigation and/or business immigration work. Applicants must have outstanding academic credentials, strong legal research and writing skills, and excellent communication and interpersonal skills. We value Summer Clerks who have a demonstrated interest in civil rights and community service.
Interested 2Ls should email cover letter, resume, and academic transcript to firstname.lastname@example.org. Application deadline is Noon Pacific Time on October 26, 2018.
