RSVP for San Francisco Trip ASAP, Human Trafficking Conference

REQUESTING CONFIRMATION: San Francisco Public Interest Law City Visit January 18, 2013

1stPlaceSanFranciscoCableCarsLast month we notified you of the Center for Public Service Law second annual San Francisco Public Interest Law City Visit for Friday January 18, 2013.


If you wish to attend, contact Dean Storms at mestorms@uw.edu no later than December 20, 2012 at 5:00 p.m.. If we do not have the minimum number of attendees by this time the event will be cancelled.

DETAILS: On January 18 we will visit 4 public interest/public service agencies in the city of San Francisco.  This year we will visit the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), Equal Rights Advocates, the International Justice Resource Center and the National Housing Law Project.  Last January 2012 we visited 4 different locations; 9 UW Law students went on the trip and received excellent exposure to public interest law in San Francisco.

WHO may attend?  UW law students

WHY ATTEND? If you are interested in seeking summer positions in San Francisco or if you think you might practice public interest law in San Francisco after graduating then this is a great opportunity to get a sense of the lay of the land in SF.  At each place we visit, the organization will give us a brief presentation and then lawyers on staff will answer our questions.  Meeting the public interest lawyers in these offices will help you to begin building relationships — which is vital to “breaking in” to a new community.  None of the employers we visit can guarantee our students jobs, but at least one attendee from last year secured a summer position after visiting one of the sites.

WHAT ARE THE EXPENSES? You must provide your own transportation and lodging to and from San Francisco.  On Friday we will provide lunch and although most of these organization are within walking distance of each other if a bus or cab is necessary we will cover that as well.

HOW TO RSVP: Contact Dean Storms at mestorms@uw.edu if you are interested in attending or if you have additional questions.  Deadline to confirm attendance is December 20 at 5:00 p.m.

Public Interest Paths: A Conversation with Aline Carton Listfjeld

Ms_JDMs. JD, a nonprofit organization dedicated to the success of women in law school and the legal profession, recently published an article on legal aid featuring Center for Public Service Law Assistant Director Aline Carton Listfjeld.

In the article, Aline described her purpose: “Aiding those in need.”

She described that her decision to go to law school was not necessarily to “be a lawyer” but to better serve social justice. Aline had many interests before law school, and then shaped her legal career along that continuum. She put it this way:

aline“When I was in college, like many people, … my consciousness was raised by all kinds of social problems….[My interests] took on many shapes and forms throughout the years and I kind of burnt out doing grassroots organizing work. I was really tired and I felt like I needed some of my own professional development. I wanted to get intellectually challenged a bit more and I wanted to develop some more concrete skills and I thought that’s where I could get it, in law school. So I didn’t actually go into it thinking, you know, ‘I’m going to be a lawyer now!’ It was: I want to learn some other skill so I can work for social justice.”

Read more about Aline’s path, which might reveal interesting and exciting synergies with yours.

Pay is competitive, D.O.E., and is roughly based on 20 hours/week. Benefits will not be provided.

Global Workers combats worker exploitation by promoting portable justice for transnational migrants through a cross-border network of advocates and resources.

The Consultant will work closely with Global Workers’ staff, including the Executive Director in drafting the visa summaries, and Communications Coordinator for the online publication and dissemination.

Essential Duties and Responsibilities include: Conduct research; analyze data on temporary visa programs, visa regulations, labor abuses occuring in visa programs, and key policy issues; and draft and finalize written summaries of visa programs for publication on Global Workers’ website.

A law degree is required, as well as at least 2–5 years experience working on legal issues related to U.S. immigration law and regulations or labor rights for migrant workers, especially temporary visa programs. Fluency in Spanish is preferred.
