Each summer, Nebraska Appleseed’s law clerk program attracts some of the best and brightest public interest minded law students from Nebraska and across the country. This summer was no exception. We were fortunate to have eight students: three from the University of Nebraska College of Law, three from Creighton University Law School, one from the University of Iowa College of Law, and one from Georgetown University’s Law School. These students worked side-by-side with us as we tackled some of the most pressing public interest issues of the day, including the state’s fragile child welfare reform, ongoing health care access issues, and harmful immigration policies.
In the coming days, this blog will feature reflections from Appleseed’s summer law clerks. You will hear in their own words what they have done and learned this summer and how their experience has impacted their thoughts about their future career paths. It has been great to see the level of interest and talent reflected in this group of students and we look forward to watching the various ways they will work to “sow the seeds of justice” in the future!
