Yasser Clor (3L) has accepted a post-graduate 3-6 month funded internship in Bergamo, Italy. Clor will be working with ADAPT, a nonprofit organization aimed at promoting research in the field of industrial and labor relations from a comparative and international perspective. As a fellow with the organization, Clor will collaborate with attorneys on comparative labor and employment law issues.
Prior to law school, Clor set aside multiple offers to play professional baseball to earn an undergraduate degree in political science at UC Berkeley. There, he maintained his love for the sport by playing in Division 1 baseball.
In law school, Clor has gained a diverse set of experiences in both criminal and civil law. He interned at both the Santa Clara County Public Defender’s Office and clerked at a local civil law firm. He is also active in the TJSL community by serving as Public Relations Chair of the Muslim Student Association. Clor has deferred his acceptance to an LL.M. program in international law at Santa Clara University as well as a program in banking and financial transactions at Boston University to pursue this unique opportunity.
“I am thrilled for this chance to advance my interest in international law,” said Clor. “I am really looking forward to working with attorneys from other countries and I am hoping this experience will aid my understanding in international law and employment law issues. I am so grateful to Professor Susan Bisom-Rapp for bringing this opportunity to TJSL and for her guidance in the process.”
