NYSUT OGC offers Law Clerk positions for students with a demonstrated interest in labor and employment law.

(Students may qualify for law school credit for this clerkship).

NYSUT is a statewide labor organization serving the needs of its more than 600,000 members. NYSUT’s in-house legal department provides representation and guidance in a variety of settings in both the public and private sectors. Law Clerks work directly with staff attorneys providing research, writing, and litigation support across a broad spectrum of labor and employment issues. Law Clerks will have an opportunity to attend proceedings and meetings outside of the office to get a flavor of the “real life” practice of law for a union-side attorney. NYSUT OGC has an interest in continuing its tradition of offering opportunities to qualified minority candidates.
