The Andy and Gwen Stern Community Lawyering Clinic (Stern CLC), which is directed by Professor Rachel López, is seeking students to volunteer at the Clinic this Summer (2021). The students will be working with the Clinic’s Staff Attorney, Rodlena Sales to offer legal services to the West Philadelphia community and can use their volunteer hours toward their pro bono service requirements. Students can earn a maximum of 50 pro bono hours.
The students will provide legal assistance and advice to individuals from the communities around Drexel’s campus. The students will work on a variety of legal issues such as property ownership (i.e. tangled titles, property taxes), probate administration, estate planning, etc. In addition, the students may have the opportunity to work with a community organization on a recreational project.
The Stern CLC is housed in the Dornsife Center for Neighborhood Partnerships, which is situated at the border of Mantua and Powelton Village, two neighborhoods that are in close proximity to the Law School and University’s campus.
If you are interested in volunteering with the Stern CLC this summer, please send a Statement of Interest and copy of your resume to Rashida West (firstname.lastname@example.org) and Rodlena Sales (email@example.com). Please submit all materials by Friday, April 30, 2021.
