Employment Advocacy Project advocates for the rights of employees and represents unemployment claimants who are appealing their denials of unemployment compensation. Student advocates interview clients, research applicable law, and then conduct direct and cross examinations and give closing statements before an administrative law judge. |
Advocates can earn more than 35 hours of pro bono credit during the year while gaining extensive trial and appellate advocacy experience. This project is ideal for 1L's who want to jump right into legal practice and gain memorable courtroom experiences. This project is also ideal for 2L's and 3L's who want to develop trial and appellate advocacy experience while gaining required pro bono hours on a flexible schedule.
