    Great Clerkship Experience

    I worked at Bay Area Legal Aid as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    Had the opportunity to work on very interesting cases and with amazing and hardworking attorneys. As a clerk, I was given a great deal of responsibility that created a true sense of accountability in the work I did.

    Cons

    I clerked in the Summer of 2011 and worked under the supervision of a great attorney. I worked 40+ hours per week and was given real work to do. I enjoyed my experience and would recommend other law students to also seek a clerkship with Bay Legal.
