But Ms. Weinzierl said she expects some students may be taking advantage of connections to take work even if it doesn&rsquo;t pay.</p> <p>&ldquo;Our students are anxious to get experience,&rdquo; she said.&nbsp; &ldquo;Some, where it&rsquo;s financially feasible for them to do such a thing, may.&rdquo;</p> <p>Jennifer Blaga, director of career planning at Cleveland-Marshall College of Law at Cleveland State University, also said she&rsquo;s seeing more unpaid internships offered.</p> <p>The Department of Labor outlines six criteria that are required in order for an internship to qualify as unpaid.&nbsp; They include intern training that would be similar to an educational environment and a conclusion that the employer does not immediately benefit from an intern&rsquo;s work and may be impeded by it, as in cases where an intern requires instruction that takes up time other employees would be spending on work.</p> <p>Ms. Blaga said she brings up those criteria with students, who in turn are discussing them with potential supervisors.&nbsp; In addition to the three law firms Ms. Blaga said had inquired about Cleveland-Marshall students&rsquo; interest in unpaid internships, she has heard that some companies are looking for law students on an uncompensated basis.</p> <p>&ldquo;It&rsquo;s a pretty hot issue,&rdquo; she said.&nbsp; &ldquo;Students are taking anything they can get.&rdquo;</p> <p>&ldquo;Some are bartending or working other part-time jobs so they can afford to get the unpaid law experience that will help build their resumes, Ms. Blaga said.</p> <p>&ldquo;A large and increasing number of students are able and willing to work for free.&rdquo;</p> <p><b>Opportunity Knocks</b></p> <p>Steven Larson, a second-year law student at Cleveland-Marshall, said he participated in a six week unpaid program at the Reminger Co. law firm, along with one other student.&nbsp; The firm also is hosting two more students in a second six-week session and had a third split his time between the first and second six-week session.</p> <p>Mr. Larson said his work at Reminger allowed him to &ldquo;dip my toes in the water a little bit and see how a law firm really operates.&rdquo; He spent much of his time shadowing attorneys and seeing what paid law clerks do, writing motions and memoranda.&nbsp;&nbsp; He said he also was able to assist with research projects and to help prepare presentations.</p> <p>&nbsp;&ldquo;I&rsquo;m grateful for the opportunity to have this experience,&rdquo; he said.&nbsp; &ldquo;In this market, there&rsquo;s really nothing available.&rdquo;</p> <p>Bethanie Ricketts, a Reminger associate who runs the firm&rsquo;s law clerk program, said the firm couldn&rsquo;t bill clients for anything done by the summer interns.&nbsp; Instead, the incentive was to provide opportunities to students who might not otherwise see the inside of a law firm.</p> <p>&ldquo;Financially, there really was no benefit to us at all,&rdquo; she said.&nbsp; &ldquo;It&rsquo;s a way to give back to the legal community a little bit and hopefully help them out with their next job.&nbsp; So many people are just looking for something.&rdquo;</p> <p><b>&lsquo;Everything&rsquo;s tougher&rsquo;</b></p> <p>Kelli Curtis, assistant dean for career services at the Case Western Reserve University School of Law, said in an e-mailed statement that the school &ldquo;supports students who secure unpaid opportunities by offering a variety of summer fellowships.&rdquo;&nbsp; Many she listed are focused on specific work, such as fellowships for human rights or environmental law.</p> <p>Ms. Curtis wrote that CWRU&rsquo;s first and second-year students &ldquo;have been successful in securing summer employment&rdquo; and the school&rsquo;s employment rates have been consistent with past years.&nbsp; She said the career services office &ldquo;is working hard to help students and graduates navigate today&rsquo;s legal hiring landscape.&rdquo;</p> <p>As for those students who are closer to graduation, Cleveland-Marshall&rsquo;s Ms. Blaga said she has seen some &ldquo;hesitation&rdquo; from employers looking to hire law clerks because they are &ldquo;cautious about (the students&rsquo;) expectations.&rdquo;</p> <p>Copyright: Crain's Business Communications.</p> Tue, 20 Jul 2010 10:30:00 EDT 1275880 June 14 http://www.uakron.edu/law/news/news-details.dot?newsId=1341559 <p>Barbara Weinzierl, Director of Career Planning for Akron Law, is quoted in a Crain&rsquo;s Cleveland Business story on job prospects for law graduates.

Nothing could be farther from the truth. Here are the facts: For years (since at least 2007) we have been fully transparent about the likelihood and difficulty of maintaining our merit scholarships in all our letters to students and on our website (see <a href="https://www.uakron.edu/law/admissions/finaid/retention.dot">https://www.uakron.edu/law/admissions/finaid/retention.dot</a>). Widespread first-year scholarships plus relatively low tuition ($23,583 full-time tuition for 2013-14) serve our mission of keeping law school accessible and affordable. We have chosen to base continuing merit scholarships on strong performance in law school rather than on entering credentials. This strategy enables us to attract excellent students, keep law school affordable, and treat our continuing students more equitably. Our debt load upon graduation reflects this commitment: our students&rsquo; average debt is lower than 93% of all law schools and 84% of public law schools.</p> <p>We have worked hard over the years to institute a scholarship program that enhances access to legal education for those who might not otherwise be able pursue a law degree. While our merit scholarship renewal requirements have been stringent, we have always been fully transparent about the requirements. We include information about the likelihood of renewal in all of our scholarship-related letters and on our website. For scholarship retention data, see:</p> <p><a href="https://www.uakron.edu/law/admissions/finaid/retention.dot">https://www.uakron.edu/law/admissions/finaid/retention.dot</a></p> <p>All of our required consumer information (and some non-required consumer information) is here:</p> <p><a href="https://www.uakron.edu/law/admissions/consumerinfo.dot">https://www.uakron.edu/law/admissions/consumerinfo.dot</a></p> <p>All of this is publicly available.</p> <p>And since 2007, well ahead of any ABA requirements, we have specifically identified the percentage of scholarship renewals in materials we send to admitted students. If you check the Law School Transparency website, you will see an unblemished record for the 2011 report. We provide all required information and much more. [An earlier version of their report shows that we had one bad mark for failure to file a required report, but we actually filed it that day after they did their survey, well before their earlier report ever appeared.]</p> <p>It is important to evaluate any single ranking or other piece of information in the larger context. For us, the bottom line is enhancing access to legal education. We do that through our scholarship program and through our unusually low tuition. As a result of these efforts, our graduates have among the lowest average debt levels in the country at graduation. The class of 2012 averaged $66,283 in debt at graduation (see <a href="http://www.uakron.edu/law/admissions/finaid/borrowing.dot">http://www.uakron.edu/law/admissions/finaid/borrowing.dot</a>), which was lower than the average debt at graduation at 93% of all other American law schools, 84% of American public law schools, and all other Ohio law schools.</p> <p>Relevant debt data from the class of 2012 is summarized below (Source: 2012-2013 ABA Takeoff Report, Table J-8).</p> <p>Avg. Debt at Graduation among Private American Law Schools: $122,159</p> <p>Avg. Debt at Graduation among Public American Law Schools: $84,600</p> <p><strong>Overall Average (Unweighted): $106,836</strong></p> <p><strong></strong>&nbsp;</p> <p><strong>Average debt at graduation among Ohio law schools</strong></p> <p>The University of Akron School of Law: $66,283</p> <p>Cleveland State University, Cleveland-Marshall College of Law: $82,269</p> <p>University of Cincinnati School of Law: $84,140</p> <p>The University of Toledo School of Law: $95,375</p> <p>Ohio Northern University, Pettit College of Law: $97,968</p> <p>The Ohio State University, Moritz College of Law: $98,674</p> <p>University of Dayton School of Law: $118,333</p> <p>Case Western Reserve University School of Law: $118,806</p> <p>Capital University School of Law: $120,471</p> <p><strong>Overall Average (Unweighted): $98,035</strong></p> <p><strong></strong>&nbsp;</p> <p>It is also important to understand that we a have a tiered renewal system. In the 2010 through 2012 entering classes, we allowed for partial renewal, so another 15% of the 2011 entering class renewed 50% of their scholarship going into their second year of law school.</p> <p>For the 2013 entering class, we have lowered the scholarship renewal standard to an unprecedented level. Those entering law school in fall 2013 will need to maintain a 2.90 GPA (roughly the top third of the class) in order to continue 100% of their scholarships to the next year of law school. Since the scholarships we offer are merit-based, we believe that in order to renew scholarships, scholarship recipients must demonstrate merit. The failure to require a significant demonstration of merit would create equity issues because students who received scholarships as entering students and then earned very low grades would end up sitting in class alongside students who did not receive scholarships as entering students and ended up earning very high grades.</p> <p>Under our approach, approximately 2/3 of entering students receive scholarships. A substantial number of those students necessarily will not be in the top of the class, but the scholarships give them the opportunity to enter law school and demonstrate their ability. Even with widespread loss of scholarships, our low tuition means that our graduates still average among the least student debt upon graduation of all law schools in the country.</p> Fri, 12 Jul 2013 15:54:00 EDT 3d447e4f-6e88-44b4-a398-a2770ac43cc2 Feb. 27 http://www.uakron.edu/law/news/news-details.dot?newsId=49a5c4f8-572b-4933-85d3-4ded1b7973e5 <p>Dean Martin H.
