Recruiting for the L&E Clinic

Our "normal" cycle is to recruit in the late fall for students to work with us full-time the following summer and then to stay on through the following fall and spring. We accept rising 2Ls and rising 3Ls.  We evaluate applicants for background and interest in entrepreneurship, business transactions and/or science. Recruitment in this Fall Cycle is part of the joint recruiting effort for all clinical opportunities. 

We also recruit outside our normal cycle as we have openings or extraordinary need for more student attorneys. We typically take on a smaller number of students in the Fall and again in the Spring. Once again, we recruit through email to UW Law students and through word of mouth.
