PIAC’s offices were a hive of activity this morning as 18 Law students from Sydney University started the their clinical placement as part of the Social Justice Clinical Summer Course.
The Social Justice Program, which is provided in collaboration with Sydney University gives final year law students the opportunity to gain on the job experience with real world cases and participate in a structured seminar program dealing with social justice issues and public interest law.
The course consists of four days of seminars and 12 days of clinical placement (or internship). Students will be engaged in tasks in legal research, writing, comparative analysis and advocacy strategy preparation.
PIAC welcomes all the students and looks forward to working with them over the next two weeks.
