Public Interest Practicum Applications | Due November 30

The Public Interest Practicum is a field placement program through which Caruso Law students earn academic credit for their work with Neighborhood Legal Services of Los Angeles (NLSLA) in the Public Benefits, Clean Slate/Expungement and Education Teams. Students will work under expert supervision, in person and remotely, for clients in these practice areas, gaining significant experience in client interviewing, advising, and counseling; case evaluation and analysis; and advocacy.

This is a four unit, AEXP course graded on a High Pass/Pass/Credit/Fail basis. Students must work two days per week to complete the course for four units and must complete faculty advising sessions with Professor Baker on alternating weeks. Students will set and commit to a schedule with the field supervisors at work at the beginning of the semester.

All interested 2L and 3L students are invited to submit a resume and cover letter to Linn Griffin at clinicallaw@pepperdine.edu by November 30.
