America First Legal Foundation, www.aflegal.org, seeks motivated and mission-aligned second- and third-year law students to work as law clerks for the Fall 2022 semester.

This position will provide you the opportunity to work on a variety of projects in cutting edge areas of the law. Clerks will have the opportunity to work on matters across AFL’s litigation portfolio that is at the fore of public policy debates. Clerks will also assist with AFL’s oversight mission and gain experience using various oversight tools to inform the debates that shape the nation’s future and drive public policy. Clerks will also have the opportunity to meet and build relationships with key lawyers and policymakers–from across the conservative movement–fighting to protect our values and the Constitution.

Law clerks are expected to assist with researching, drafting, proofing, and cite checking material that AFL produces, including letters, memos, complaints, motions, and briefs (administrative, trial, and appellate), oversight actions (e.g. OIG demand letters, FOIA requests, Hill letters, and lawsuits). Law clerks will also be expected to assist with document review, as needed, and generally assist in other duties to further AFL’s mission.

Hours and arrangements are flexible and can be made on an individualized basis. We can work within your school’s parameters to meet credit-hour requirements or we can work to accommodate schedules outside of school hours. We are looking for a 10 to 15 hour per week commitment from you, starting around September 1. We place an emphasis on quality work product and individuals who want to contribute and gain meaningful experience. Candidates can be based anywhere in the country.
