John Jay Legal Services

John Jay Legal Services doorHaub's John Jay Legal Services currently offers client representation clinical experience in five different areas: criminal trial advocacy; disability rights litigation and transactional representation; immigration and immigrants' rights; investor rights/securities arbitrations; and transactional representation of food and beverage businesses and nonprofits. The central purpose of a client representation clinical program is to help students make the transition from doing what students do to doing what lawyers do, and to make this transition in a thoughtful, purposeful manner. The key is that the student is the lawyer – not the assistant, not the researcher, but the lawyer.

Externship opportunities include civil advocacy on behalf of the disadvantaged, corporate law, criminal justice and prosecution, environmental law, family court, health law, judicial externships, policy and advocacy on behalf of public interest organizations, and real estate law.
