Job Site Connects Child Welfare Employers With Qualified Student Help

3/1/2006:   Need extra help around the office this summer? Find a solution to your problem, and help a young person's budding career, by employing a student. Student employees can research issues of adoption or child welfare law, help prepare memoranda of law and court briefs, participate in client counseling sessions, assist with trial preparation, create newsletters, websites, and layperson guides, and contribute to the writing and editing of scholarly articles.

The Adoption JobSite, managed by the National Center for Adoption Law and Policy, connects qualified law students and graduate social work students with adoption and child welfare employers offering paid and volunteer summer positions nationwide. The service is free to both student applicants and employers.

In addition to the benefits for employers, JobSite students who are successfully matched for summer 2006 positions will have the opportunity to apply for one of two merit-based scholarships to attend the Summer Adoption Law Institute, July 31-August 5, at Capital University Law School, tuition-free.
