Opportunities available with A2J Author Student Editorial Board
The board is in need of students to volunteer, earn work-study money, or obtain independent study credit for creating interviews used by pro se litigants nationwide to assemble court documents. The board is run by Chicago-Kent students who gain legal research and writing skills along with substantive knowledge and a completed work product during the interview-crafting process. Students can choose from a variety of incentives in addition to gaining practical experience while devoting at least six hours per month to the board (that's 12 minutes per day).
