UW Student Legal Services: Rule 9 Legal Intern

Student Legal Services (SLS) provides a safe and confidential space for UW students to get answers to their legal questions. We advise and represent students on a variety of issues such as landlord/tenant, protection orders, estate planning, name and gender marker changes, criminal law, discrimination, immigration, and more.

As a Rule 9 Legal Intern, you will be responsible for conducting one-time consultations with students, which includes researching and advising students on their legal matters. You will also have an ongoing caseload that may require you to draft documents, interact with opposing parties, and even appear in court under the supervision of an attorney, among other tasks. Finally, you may have the opportunity to give presentations on legal issues to student groups.

One intern will work full-time during summer quarter 2018. This intern, plus six other incoming interns, will work 10 -12 hours per week from autumn quarter 2018 to spring quarter 2019. The internships provide terrific opportunities to work on real cases with experienced practitioners.
