Research & Writing Help for VLP Volunteer Attorneys

Virtual summer law clerks are here!  This summer, in collaboration with the University of Cincinnati College of Law, VLP volunteer attorneys will have access to a law student volunteer panel comprised of rising 3L students . This collaboration is a win-win for the VLP and Cincinnati Law.

Typically, these students would be employed for the summer, but this is not a typical summer for anyone. No assignment is too big or too small. The students want to utilize what they have learned and to build on their prior experience. They are another tool to help you help our clients. To have a law student help you with an assignment, simply contact Jim Tomaszewski at the UC College of Law, at tomaszja@uc.edu .
