Hi there, I am so excited I saw your web site. I’m currently enrolled at Cabrillo College working on my Criminal Justice Degree. I’m still undecided with what my future career is going to be, I do know I enjoy working with juvenile offenders. I find the justice system to be extremely exciting to me!! I’m dedicated to my work, my family and school. Working with the court’s would be very interesting and exciting. It’s also a great opportunity for me to learn a lot of knowledge and skills. I could go on and on about how excited I would be if I was chosen as a intern!! Thank you very much, Casey L. Neu
I’m a recent graduate of Emory Law School, a native of Monterey, and the recipient of a post-graduate fellowship to pursue public interest law practice. I’m writing to learn about clerking opportunities in chambers at the Superior Court (preferably in Salinas). Because the court’s website indicates that MCL administers the internship program, I thought it might handle other volunteer opportunities as well.
By way of background: I am the former director of the Emory Law School Supreme Court Advocacy Project (ELSSCAP), the nation’s only student-run Supreme Court clinic, and a member of the Emory Law Mock Trial Society. In ELSSCAP, I oversaw completion of 11 cases by 34 students in a 12-month period, reviewed prospective cases for justiciability defects, and edited briefs and outreach letters. I also drafted 9 briefs in 5 cases, and my work resulted in the clinic’s first cert. grant and victory on the merits. As a Mock Trial member, I won 5 national awards for trial practice. I also interned for the DeKalb Solicitor-General’s Office and CARE USA, an international development agency.
Under Emory’s fellowship program, recent graduates may volunteer 20 hours per week with a legal employer, while Emory pays the graduate a monthly stipend. Graduates gain the opportunity to gain substantial experience while looking for permanent employment, and employers gain the benefit of a (soon-to-be) licensed attorney’s work product without incurring a financial obligation.
If you have any interest in coordinating a volunteer law clerk position, or would like additional information, please feel free to contact me at (831) 917-2514 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org. If there is a more appropriate point of contact in the court, please let me know. Thank you in advance for your time.
Louis Laverone, J.D.
