Law Clerk Position

The National Veterans Legal Services Program (NVLSP) is seeking a law clerk to work on a full-time basis (37.5 hours per week) during Summer 2013. This position may be paid or for academic credit, depending upon the successful applicant’s needs.

NVLSP is a nationally known nonprofit public interest law firm dedicated to assisting veterans and their families. We represent veterans and national veterans organizations in federal court litigation involving rights to VA compensation for disabilities due to military service, train and teach advocates to provide representation to veterans and their families, and publish newsletters and self-help guides to provide practical advice to veterans’ advocates. In addition, NVLSP is involved in military discharge and disability issues, and is involved in several pro bono initiatives, including “Lawyers Serving Warriors,” an NVLSP project providing free legal help to service members and veterans who served in Operation Iraqi Freedom or Operation Enduring Freedom. NVLSP publishes The Veterans Benefits Manual, a comprehensive manual addressing all aspects of veterans benefits and the VA adjudication process, and The Veterans Advocate, a veterans law and advocacy journal.

Applicants for the law clerk position must have strong legal research and writing skills. Duties will include reviewing legal and medical records, conducting legal research, writing memoranda and performing other litigation support assignments. The law clerk will work primarily with our Litigation Division, which represents veterans and survivors in proceedings before the U.S. Court of Appeals for Veterans Claims. The ideal candidate will be a second-year law student who is able to work on a part-time basis during the 2013-2014 academic year. First-year law students will be considered.

A resume, writing sample, and list of references should be e-mailed, faxed (202-328-0063), or mailed to:
