LEGAL SERVICES OF GREATER MIAMI, INC. (LSGMI) – JUDGE SANDY KARLAN LAW STUDENT FELLOWSHIP [DEADLINE: DECEMBER 12, 2014]
Judge Sandy Karlan has been a Circuit Court Judge since her appointment to the bench by Governor Lawton Chiles in 1995.

Talented and committed law students are indispensable to helping LSGMI fulfills its mission of Equal Justice. Excellent opportunities exist in all LSGMI Projects for law student fellows to build substantive expertise, strengthen practical legal skills, develop professional contacts, and provide vitally needed legal services to those who could not otherwise afford them.

Law student fellows provide important assistance to LSGMI attorneys including interviewing clients and witnesses, drafting legal documents, discovery and briefs, and conducting research and investigations.
