IMMEDIATE JOB OPENING!!

Bennett & Bennett Law Group, LLC is seeking applicants for an immediate law clerk opening. B&B is looking for a self-starter law clerk that can work independently, while frequently reporting to the firm’s principals. This clerkship provides a unique opportunity to a motivated student that has interest in solo/small firm practice to witness and participate first-hand in all aspects of civil litigation. The clerkship will also provide the opportunity to attend (though not participate as an advocate) in-court proceedings and settlement discussions.

How to apply:

Send a cover letter, resume, transcript (official or unofficial), and two references (professional and/or academic) to Sheryl Bennett at [email protected].

Location: 5000 Sunnyside Ave, Ste 101, Beltsville, MD 20705
Compensation: $30.00/hour
Start Date: ASAP
Term: Fall Semester (possibility of renewal)
Minimum Time Required: 16 - 20 hours per week during the academic year (possibility of more during breaks based on need/availability). Schedule is flexible.

The Raising the Bar Committee of the Washington Bar Association’s Young Lawyers Division invites all diverse rising Second and Third Year Law students, who are participating in their school’s On Campus Interview Program, to attend our Pre-OCI Prep Session on Thursday August 2, 2018 at 6:00PM at Wiley Rein LLP (1776 K Street NW).

After speaking with a number of interviewers from various law firms, we have noted that many diverse students fall short during their 20 minute on campus interviews. This Pre-OCI Prep Session is meant to provide students with important bits of advice, including the must-dos, the should nots, and potential landmines.

Why Now: Normally, these programs are held during the Spring Semester, but since students do not know their grades, rankings, journal or moot court statuses by then, the information may not be as impactful. At this point, now that students have their academic information and are fresh from their summer internships, they will be better able to apply the information they receive.

Just thought I'd share this free CLE about "Protest Lawyering." I haven't done it yet, so I can't vouch for it, but I thought it might at least have some material interesting to everyone in here. P.s. Good luck to everyone taking the Bar in a couple of weeks. Stay focused, don't let yourself get wigged out — and if you do, just remember to treat the "big" problems like little ones: assess the situation, figure out a response to it piece-by-piece, and find your way to back on track. Oh, and remember, you are loved in this family!
Hey, I came across a website that reports on free CLE sessions, so I thought I'd share it. I hope everyone's spring semester is off to a good start!
Just wanted to share that the conference AU is hosting (the Project for Integrating Spirituality, Law and Politics in mid-October) now has scholarships available! https://www.facebook.com/337526286402803/posts/1162644027224354/
Hi WCL BLSA! Could you all take a moment to follow/like the new Mid-Atlantic Black Law Students Association page? We are hoping to use it as one of several means of disseminating information to all of our sub-regions/chapters this year. Thanks a lot!
Hi guys, The Park at 14th is having a law school happy hour this Friday. Come out and network with other law students before the school year kicks into full gear!
