Legislative Clinics.

Postby wildhaggis » Thu Nov 08, 2012 5:42 pm

Anyone have any insight on these? I know some schools offer them and some don't - I'm mainly just curious to hear anyone's experiences with them, if they're worth it, etc.

Thanks in advance.

Have fun doing "undergraduate level work" -- meaning, sorting mail and the like. Well, it depends on what position you get. I'd try to work for a committee, as opposed to a member.

I don't think you understand how legislative clinics work.

Nah, I don't really give a shit. Anyways, it appears that the legislative clinic at some schools allow you to be a glorified legislative aide, while others allow you to draft legislation and represent clients in front of administrative agencies. OP I would find out from students that have taken the legislative clinic at your school if it is utterly useless, or fun.
