2022 Summer Law Clerk
The Florida Health Justice Project, Inc. (FHJP), https://www.floridahealthjustice.org, is seeking a highly motivated summer law clerk to work remotely.
Applicants should have a commitment to social justice and a belief that access to affordable health care is a human right. Applicants should have good writing, research and interview skills and also be committed to improving those skills. Our work, including the Florida Health Justice STORIES Project, also involves significant social media and communication skills.
The clerk will be working with the FHJP team on a variety of issues relating to health care access barriers for low income Floridians, including the state’s failure to expand Medicaid, issues related to Medicaid defense, barriers to immigrants’ access to health care, lack of resources for home and community based services for seniors and persons with disabilities, and transparency and accountability issues related to Medicaid managed care.
The student will also be working with us on our Health Law Partnership Project, a collaborative grant with the National Health Law Program (NHeLP). The overarching goals of this project are aimed at preserving and protecting access to high quality health care, including through Medicaid, the ACA and the Americans with Disabilities Act. The student will work with the FHJP/NHeLP team on current litigation as well as development of needed enforcement actions.
The student is expected to work full time for 8 weeks. The specific work hours are flexible. The position is unfunded and will be remote.
If interested, please send a resume and cover email to: firstname.lastname@example.org as soon as possible.
