Law students: Clerk at PLF this summer!
Pacific Legal Foundation is offering full-time summer law clerkships in its Sacramento headquarters. Clerkships run May 27 – Aug. 29, 2014 (although these dates are flexible if necessary). PLF—the largest and most experienced non-profit legal foundation of its kind—promotes the principles of limited government, private property, individual rights and economic freedom. Its law clerk program is a stimulating and challenging educational experience as well as an introduction into the field of public interest law. Our law clerks may be assigned to legal research projects in environmental law, private property rights, racial equality, economic liberty, or other areas. In addition, clerks will have a unique opportunity to study the constitutional and philosophical framework of liberty—subjects often overlooked in the law school setting—alongside some of the best known litigators in the nationwide freedom-oriented legal reform movement. Many of PLF’s attorneys started out as clerks—and other clerks have gone on to important positions some of the nation’s leading free market, liberty-oriented organizations. Clerkships are paid positions, at $11/hour.
Best of all, PLF clerks help make a difference. Applications are due February 28, 2014. Applicants must submit a cover letter and resume to:
Ms. Tawnda Elling
Hiring Committee Coordinator

Sacramento, California 95814

Applications are reviewed as they are received. The Foundation is an equal opportunity employer and is committed to policies to achieve equitable hiring, assignment, and promotion practices. The Foundation encourages applications from all individuals interested in working to promote the principles of free enterprise, private property, limited government, and freedom of the individual.
