What types of assignments do your law clerks work on?
Law clerks are given a range of assignments. They do legal research and write motions and memoranda on issues ranging from the Fourth Amendment to juvenile delinquency law.

If a law clerk is interested in one aspect of our practice, we try to accommodate that in the types of assignments given to that clerk. Law clerks also do client intake interviews and, if they are interested, have the opportunity to watch our attorneys in court, argue their own motions (if certified), and do some investigation.
