Our law clerk program is an invaluable window into our practice and firm culture. We provide our law clerks with something priceless: hands-on experience. As a law clerk, you will be assigned to select projects under the close supervision of our experienced attorneys. Your assigned projects will consist of substantive legal work, and may include: drafting briefs, memoranda and contracts, and may even include participating in client consultations and meetings, or accompanying a litigation attorney to court for hearings and trials. Such direct participation enables you to observe the way Lavelle Law Ltd.’s attorneys advocate on behalf of our clients in an effort to solve problems and create opportunities for our clients. In furtherance of our “open-door policy,” we encourage all our attorneys to give law clerks as much training and constructive feedback as possible. As a result, we are provided the opportunity to measure how likely a law clerk is to succeed in our firm’s environment.
