Heartland Pro Bono Council is currently seeking candidates for a 2015 Pro Bono Clerkship in Consumer Law. This one-year unpaid clerkship starts in Jan. 2015 and is open to any attorney licensed to practice in Indiana. Priority will be given to newer attorneys, attorneys practicing in Marion County and attorneys who want to focus their practices in the area of consumer law.
Each clerk will be required to accept at least two pre-screened pro bono cases from Heartland and to participate in a minimum number of consumer law clinics being held at the John H. Boner Community Center. In exchange, each clerk will receive:
Eight or more hours of free CLE in consumer law with a faculty consisting of consumer law attorneys and judicial officers of the Marion Superior Court who regularly preside over consumer cases;
Access to the Marion County civil court judicial officers via quarterly “brown bag” lunch meetings (no discussion of pending cases);
An experienced consumer law mentor;
Malpractice insurance coverage for the pro bono cases; and
Hands-on experience with consumer law cases.
Applications, which can be found online at heartlandprobono.org, are due by Nov. 14, 2014. Applications can be emailed to Dana Luetzelschwab at dana.luetzelschwab.ilsi.net, or mailed to the Heartland Pro Bono Council at 1800 N. Delaware St., Suite 1800, Indianapolis, IN 46204.•
