Do I have to be eligible for work-study to paid for working in your department?
Yes. Students must be eligible for work-study funding. We have work-study contracts with UC Berkeley, Hastings, Golden Gate, and USF law schools. However, students from other law schools who are willing to volunteer, or who can obtain alternate sources of funding, are encouraged to apply also.
