Overview:
SEIU LAW STUDENT PROGRAM
Full-Time and Part-Time Externs & Full-Time Summer Law Clerks

Service Employees International Union (SEIU) has openings for part-time
law clerks and full- and part-time externs during the 2013-14 academic
year, and for full-time law clerks in the summer of 2014.

SEIU is a progressive, dynamic and growing labor organization
representing over 2 million members in the United States, Puerto Rico and
Canada, principally in the property service, public service, and health care
fields. Attorneys in SEIU’s Legal Department engage in innovative
lawyering to further the organization’s interests in organizing new workers,
improving working conditions, engaging in political action, and achieving
social justice. This includes representation of SEJU in litigation before
courts and administrative agencies involving the National Labor Relations
Act, the Fair Labor Standards Act, election campaign finance laws, and
local and state labor relations statutes.

Law clerks and externs in the SEIU Legal Department conduct legal
research and draft legal memoranda, work with attorneys on pending
litigation, attend hearings and conferences, and meet with union leaders.

Generally, law clerks and extems are assigned to work in the Legal
Department in Washington, D.C. However, a full-time law clerk may be
assigned to work at a field location. One or more of the summer clerks will
be selected through the Peggy Browning Fund
(www.peggybrowningfund.org).

Law clerks are paid $22/hour. Externs receive credit from their law
schools. We are interested in candidates with a demonstrated commitment
to workers’ rights and social change. The successful applicant will have a
strong academic background with excellent writing and researching skills.
Completion of the basic labor law course is not required, but applicants who
have taken it should so note on the application.

NOTE: THESE POSITIONS ARE ONLY OPEN TO CURRENT LAW STUDENTS; LAW SCHOOL GRADUATES ARE NOT ELIGIBLE.


To Apply

Candidates should submit the following items:
• cover letter
• resume
• short writing sample
• references
• law school grades.

FAILURE TO SUBMIT ALL REQUESTED MATERIALS WILL RESULT IN DISMISSAL OF YOUR APPLICATION
