Every year MJF raises funds and solicits agencies to support public interest summer clerkships in Minnesota. Each clerk performs 400 hours of legal service with the agency between the end of the spring semester 2018 and the first day of fall semester 2018 on a schedule that will be determined between the clerk and agency. MJF provides to the agencies a stipend of $4,500 for Metro Clerkships or $5,000 for Greater Minnesota Clerkships. The stipend is paid by the agency to the law clerk over the course of the summer.
Eligible law students must be enrolled at one of the three law schools in Minnesota, and scheduled to graduate no earlier than January 2019.
