Each year, LAAC offers the Dan Bradley Fellowship to fund law students who want to spend their summer working at a LAAC member legal aid organization. The Fellowship is awarded to outstanding students who want to pursue a career in public interest law and who want to spend their summer working in a rural area or on a rural issue. The Dan Bradley Fellowship not only gives law students the opportunity to explore a career in legal services, it offers legal services programs a new source of dedicated and energetic summer staff.

Legal Aid of Marin.
“At the Legal Aid of Marin, I see a variety of cases in the areas of employment, housing, and family law. Thus far, I have had the opportunity to appear with my supervising attorney at a divorce settlement conference, in which I interpreted the settlement agreement for the client prior to signing. I most enjoy working on unlawful detainer (or eviction) cases.
“Many clients come to Legal Aid feeling defeated when they are told they must move out of their home. Working with a Legal Aid lawyer empowers these clients to negotiate fair and just terms, whether they end up staying or moving out. I look forward to the expansive amount of law I will learn in these three practice areas this summer.”
