Each summer the Jerome N. Frank Legal Services Organization of Yale Law School (LSO) has a fellowship program of approximately 20-25 part and full time students, from Yale and other law schools. The program officially runs from the Tuesday before Memorial Day until the Friday before Labor Day. An earlier start date is also possible in some cases. Most students work full time (40 hours per week) for twelve weeks. The stipend for the 2016 summer is $6,720 ($14.00 per hour).

The LSO clinics likely to be operating during summer 2016 are as follows:

  • Sol and Lillian Goldman Family Advocacy for Children and Youth Clinic
  • Ludwig Community and Economic Development Clinic
  • Criminal Justice Clinic
  • Immigration Legal Services
  • Landlord Tenant Legal Services
  • Mortgage Foreclosure Litigation
  • Veterans Legal Services Clinic
  • Worker and Immigrant Rights Advocacy Clinic

Students from past years have found the experience very rewarding and fun. E-mail osikhena.awudu@yale.edu with a resume, unofficial transcript, writing sample, two references and a cover letter stating your clinic interests. Applications are accepted between October 1st and February 15th for the summer program and will be reviewed on a rolling basis as they are received.
