Intern or Extern at Bet Tzedek
Under attorney supervision, law clerks carry their own caseloads and work directly with clients in our different units. Students may represent clients in hearings, interview witnesses, or perform legal research and writing. We welcome students who can commit at least 8-10 hours per week for the semester.
Staff a Legal Clinic
Law students can assist at three clinics where we provide legal assistance to clients – our Debtors’ Rights Clinic, our Self-Help Conservatorship Clinic and our Employment Rights Clinic.
Summer for Justice
We offer a structured and engaging 10-week summer program for law clerks. Placements are available in each of our units, including Employment Rights, Impact Litigation and Holocaust Services. The Summer for Justice affords professional, educational, and social opportunities that can only be found in a city as rich in diversity as Los Angeles.
