The UW Division provides legal services to the University of Washington. The University has campuses in Seattle, Bothell and Tacoma, enrolls over 50,000 students, employs over 40,000 individuals, and operates academic medical centers. Externs and volunteer law clerks to this division may have the opportunity to conduct legal research, draft client advice memoranda, participate in client meetings, attend court proceedings when available, draft or revise contracts, and attend client presentations.
The UW Division furnishes legal advice and representation across a wide scope of specialized areas, including healthcare, employment law, labor relations, student affairs, real estate, business law, intercollegiate athletics, public finance, bonds, intellectual property, tax, benefits, gifts and trusts, and constitutional law. The division’s mission is to serve the University of Washington—and the students, patients and citizens who benefit from its teaching, healthcare and research—by assuring that it receives legal advice and representation that meets the highest professional standards.
The UW Division will take externs or volunteers on a part-time or full-time basis. However, the fall quarter opportunity is volunteer only. All other quarters can be either volunteer or extern. Hours to be determined with supervising attorney. See the online job description for more information. Unpaid.
