This fall, dozens of Iowa law students will be placed in pro bono (law-related volunteer) projects in the Iowa City and Cedar Rapids area. Arranged and coordinated by the Citizen Lawyer Program, these placements give students the chance to take a break from studies, get exposure and experience in a real-life legal setting, and donate time and energy to persons who cannot otherwise afford legal services or access to the justice system. Obtaining these positions has become increasingly competitive. Students interested in applying for one or more projects are encouraged to review the full descriptions for each project to determine whether they are eligible and available. A full description of each available project, including scheduling, dates, and time commitments, are now available via the CLP’s webpage at http://clp.law.uiowa.edu/clp/. Students can obtain an application by downloading one from the CLP website, or if a hard copy is preferred, students can also request one by stopping by the CLP office in room 216, next to the bookstore. Completed application forms, with class schedules and resumes attached, are due no later than noon on Wednesday, Aug. 29th. Applications may be submitted by email to firstname.lastname@example.org or may be dropped off to the CLP office in room 216. Please contact email@example.com with any questions prior to the application release date.
