Position Description

Student Legal Services seeks an attorney with the aptitude and desire to develop expertise in several of the areas of law served by the office. The current staff is dedicated to mentoring an attorney in areas that are new to the attorney and at the same time expects the attorney to be a self-starter and self-directed learner. Landlord-tenant cases are always a significant part of the caseload, so the attorney must handle lease reviews, security deposit disputes and other housing issues on a steady basis. The role of the position is lawyer/educator/mentor. The attorney must be non-judgmental and student-centered, “meeting clients where they are.” Within Student Legal Services’ limited representation (advising) framework, one-hour client appointments are “working” appointments in which the Staff Attorney may educate and advise the student, co-create letters or court forms with client input, make phone calls to opposing parties, and arrange referrals to campus and other resources.

  • Like many of you will probably soon be doing, I recently started a new position in the heart of the COVID-19 pandemic. While I was so excited to start working in a new office and to continue my work in higher education, I was faced with a lot of anxiety and uncertainty of what this new experience would be like knowing that many colleges and universities across the country are functioning “off the grid” and almost completely remotely. In my first two weeks, I have learned so much and wanted to share some personal suggestions and advice as you prepare for a unique start to your professional careers in Student Affairs!
