Semester 2, Week 11: How to Write a Cover Letter

Cover Letter

So cover. Much letter.

This past week, I accepted a summer position with a local public interest firm. It promises to be an immersive, hands-on experience in which I will be given considerable latitude in determining my range of responsibilities. I cannot practice law yet (most states have laws that will allow a law student to practice under the supervision of a licensed attorney, but in most cases—including my state—the student must have completed three or four semesters’ worth of law school classes), but I can accompany lawyers to court, help write briefs, and do some of the work of an advocate.
