Upper-level students may apply to be Lawyering Fellows for the Legal Skills in Social Context Program (LSSC). Lawyering Fellows work closely with a group of first-year students (known as “law offices”) to assist them with a social justice project undertaken on behalf of a community-based or public service organization. Serving as a Lawyering Fellow helps upper-level students hone their skills in effective communication, advanced strategic lawyering, critique, legal research and writing, team management, and facilitation. Lawyering Fellows will receive four credits for their work.
