Volunteer for (Mock) Jury Duty at HLS! (9/29 or 9/30)

Calling all students who are interested in serving as jurors in the mock trials for Harvard Law School (HLS) Trial Advocacy Workshop!

Trials will be held Thursday, September 29 and Friday, September 30, from 3:00pm-7:00pm on the HLS campus.  The attorneys in these trials are second and third year law students who would benefit greatly from feedback on their performances.  We are hoping to have 10-15 students per jury to deliberate and to give their judgments on whether the students have convinced them or not in the individual cases.  Please contact Amy Soto at  taw at law.harvard.edu if you are able to serve during one of these afternoons (Thursday 9/29 or Friday 9/30).

Sincerely,

Charles J. Ogletree, Jr.
Jesse Climenko Professor of Law


Seeking Student Advisory Committee Members for Clinical and Pro Bono Programs

 

The Office of Clinical and Pro Bono Programs is seeking students to sit on its Student Advisory Committee.  Students from all class years (including LLMs) are needed to contribute their ideas and suggestions regarding curriculum, new projects and placements, policies, and technology, among other things. Members of the Committee serve as liaisons between students and the Office of Clinical and Pro Bono Programs, facilitating communication between the Office, students, clinical faculty, and the law school administration. The Committee helps the Office identify and address current needs, serves as a sounding board as the Office implements program changes, and assists in strategizing about future programming.

The Committee will meet approximately three times a semester, and lunch and treats will be served.

If interested, please send your resume and a brief email expressing your interest to Lee Branson at  lbranson at law.harvard.edu by Thursday, October 6.  Please also include your regular weekly availability for meetings M-F 9am-7pm.
