Law Student Clerk Program
The Law Office of Amy Jane Agnew, P.C. is incredibly proud of its Law Student Clerk Program. Annually, the firm hires 4-6 law students from New York City area law schools, including: Brooklyn Law School, Cardozo Law School, Fordham Law School, Rutgers Law School and New York University Law School. Our talented law student clerks assist our attorneys and staff with federal constitutional and civil rights litigation. The law students gain exposure to the workings of the federal district courts of the Second Circuit, as well as valuable legal experience investigating cases, engaging with clients, drafting pleadings and motion papers, conducting discovery and preparing for court conferences, hearings and trials. When possible, law student clerks are encouraged to conduct oral advocacy work in court. Our law student clerks work extremely hard - as they will eventually in legal practice -- but pizza, margaritas and camaraderie help us all through the late nights and sometimes long work weekends. Law students are, of course, granted flexible schedules to accommodate class work, internships and finals.
Our hope is always that these talented students of law will take their gained experience in constitutional and civil rights work with them after graduation. Whether they continue on to federal and state clerkships, private practice, non-profit, public interest advocacy or academia, we hope they will remember the pleasure and pride that comes with advocating for those who need it most. We are proud to report that no matter their area of practice, most of our former law student clerks engage in pro bono practice addressing the legal needs of vulnerable communities. We could not be prouder.
If you are a current law student who is interested in our Law Student Clerk Program, please send a resume (with a current GPA) to email@example.com. Please include a short statement regarding your interest in constitutional and civil rights work and any relevant details. If we are not hiring immediately, we will let you know the timing of our next hiring round.
