The Cancer Legal Resource Center (CLRC) provides information, education and referrals about cancer-related legal issues to the public through its national telephone assistance line. CLRC also conducts national education and outreach programs for community groups, employers and healthcare professionals and is actively involved in community activities to raise public awareness of cancer-related legal and public policy issues.
Students receive training in cancer-related legal issues, including: employment, health law, estate planning, public benefits, consumer law and various other areas of cancer rights law. In addition, all students gain hands-on experience assisting people with cancer, cancer survivors, their families, friends and others affected by cancer. Get actively involved by interviewing CLRC callers and providing telephone assistance and information. Enhance your research and writing skills by drafting correspondence and conducting legal research for callers.
Law Clerks and Externs have the additional opportunity to participate in health fairs and community programs as schedules permit. Enrich your law school experience and join us in this worthwhile program!
Students can enroll in as low as 1 unit per semester for CLRC. Given the nature of this externship, students schedule their own in-office hours to fulfill their requirements.
