Information Session About New Supreme Court Clinic Takes Place March 30
On Wednesday, March 30, the law school will offer interested students an information session about its new Supreme Court Clinic, which will be offered for the first time in the fall 2011 semester. The event takes place in Hazel Hall, Room 329, at 5 p.m.
George Mason University School of Law, in partnership with Wiley Rein LLP, a Washington, D.C. law firm, will launch the Supreme Court Clinic to provide pro bono legal representation before the United States Supreme Court. The year-long clinic will provide George Mason law students with the opportunity to work closely with Wiley Rein attorneys to identify cases of interest, research legal issues, and draft Supreme Court briefs on behalf of parties and amici at both the certiorari and merits stages.
In addition to working with Wiley Rein attorneys on Supreme Court cases, students accepted into the clinic will receive classroom instruction, analyze federal and state appellate decisions for possible litigation opportunities, and attend at least one Supreme Court argument per term. The clinic will be a two-semester course and will include approximately 12 to 15 students per year.
