Victor M. Glasberg & Associates selects a law clerk to work during the academic semester and each summer on civil rights and public interest cases being handled by the firm. The clerk typically does factual and legal research, drafts memos, motions and briefs and assists with document processing and case preparation. The clerk is encouraged to attend depositions, court hearings and trials taking place during his or her tenure. In past years, clerks have interviewed witnesses in the office, in their homes, and in prison.

While clerks may receive a modest stipend to help offset travel costs, the position is funded by the clerk’s law school’s pro bono summer clerkship program. In past years the firm has received clerks from pro bono programs at Columbia, George Washington, Harvard, Vanderbilt and Yale Law Schools. 

Applications for clerkships are received until the positions are filled. Persons sending an email to the website expressing interest in a clerkship will be sent the firm’s email address to which they can send a resume, a brief writing sample, contact information for two references, and a cover letter explaining the applicant’s professional interests and goals.
