Hear from one of our 2022 summer clerks
Lydia L. Dexter was a 2022 summer Tomorrow’s Advocates Clerk and recounts her experience last summer.
I learned more about practicing environmental law in the three months I worked at Earthrise than I had learned in my two years of classes. As a Law Clerk, I was immediately given writing opportunities that impacted real projects and real clients. While challenging, these opportunities helped me quickly improve my writing while also building a sense of independence. The feedback I received from the attorneys was meaningful and incredibly helpful. The attorneys treated the Law Clerks as equals, which helped to foster a pleasant work environment. I felt like I was a part of something important, and continue to feel that way as a clinic student.
