Legal Aid Center's Civil Justice Summer Fellowship
Sponsored by Robyn Ratcliffe Manzini and Aldo Manzini

RobynAldo

We are proud to offer the Legal Aid Center of Southern Nevada Civil Justice Summer Fellowship, sponsored by Robyn Ratcliffe Manzini and Aldo Manzini. The Civil Justice Summer Fellowship will provide a law student from an ABA-accredited law school who meets the Nevada requirements for student practice (Rule 49.5) the opportunity to work full-time during the summer with attorney mentors in one of our project areas: Family Justice Project, Children’s Attorneys Project, or Consumer Rights Project. The Fellow will gain practical legal skills, from interviewing potential clients and drafting documents, to court appearances and final resolution. 

Legal Aid Center Board Member Robyn Ratcliffe Manzini and her husband, Aldo Manzini, are proud Las Vegas residents who created the Civil Justice Summer Fellowship to encourage the brightest future legal minds to join Legal Aid Center of Southern Nevada, to engage in the Las Vegas community, and build their legal career in Southern Nevada. “We appreciate the importance of practical legal and courtroom experience for new attorneys and we want to provide a hands-on fellowship experience for a public interest-minded law student.”
