Clinical Programs

Summer Intern Program

Each summer the Cumberland Legal Aid Clinic hires four to five students who have completed their second year of law school to work as full-time interns. Summer interns do the same work as students in all three clinic courses and the Domestic Violence Program, and CLAC thus is able to provide much-needed representation on a year-round basis. CLAC selects its summer interns through a competitive hiring process, which it completes each fall. The program provides selected students with a paid, intensive experience practicing public interest law.
