Religious Liberty Clinic Applications | Due November 20

Applications are now open for the Pepperdine Caruso School of Law’s Hugh and Hazel Darling Foundation Religious Liberty Clinic. They are due on Friday, November 20th.

About the Clinic:

This spring, the Religious Liberty Clinic will once again enroll 6-8 students in a seminar-style class that will include active, supervised practice in cases protecting religious liberty rights. Clinic students will participate in amicus briefs, appeals, and advocacy to advance religious liberty. This opportunity will allow interested students to get practical, hands-on experience working on religious liberty cases under the supervision of attorneys from Jones Day, one of the largest law firms in the country, including Noel Francisco, former Solicitor General of the United States; visiting professor Eric Rassbach, vice president and senior counsel at the Becket Fund for Religious Liberty, serves as the faculty director of the clinic; and the course will be co-taught by professor Rassbach and professor Daniel Chen (counsel at the Becket Fund), and supervised by Caruso Law professor Michael Helfand. For more information about the clinic, check our Pepperdine Caruso School of Law Newsroom story on the launch of the clinic below.
