7TH ANNUAL: Rural Practice Initiative Associate and Summer Clerkship Placement Program

In an effort to provide attorneys and law students with an opportunity to experience the practice of law in Greater Nebraska, the Nebraska State Bar Association is conducting its sixth annual Rural Practice Initiative Program.

  • Students participating in the program can support your fi rm while gaining practical experience.
  • In-person interviews for our clerkship program or full-time employment will take place following the CLE Seminar.
  • The goal is to provide 15-20 minutes for each interview.
  • We estimate that each attorney will have the opportunity to interview at least six students in the afternoon.
  • Attorneys and students will have an additional opportunity to meet and converse at a reception following the formal interview session.

If you are interested in hiring an associate or a law clerk for the summer of 2020, please complete and return the form to Sam Clinch, 635 S 14th St. #200, Lincoln, NE 68508. Please respond by February 14, 2020.

5:30 pm      Reception & NSBA Health Insurance Consortium Informational Meeting

The Consortium is rolling out new eligibility criteria which will make it easier for firms to qualify. LISA DANIELS from NORTH RISK PARTNERS will discuss some advantages of joining the Consortium such as:

  • Affordable Coverage: By pooling together, employers are better positioned to obtain more affordable health insurance coverage due to economies of scale, managing savings, and spreading risk.
  • Flexibility: Each employer in the Consortium has the option of selecting the type of health plan or plans that works best for its employees (high deductible plan vs. low deductible plan, etc.).
  • A Stable Community: The NSBA’s goal is to create and to encourage a stable community of employers participating in the Consortium. When a group has a stable environment, annual rate fluctuations are less likely and less dramatic from year to year.
  • Available to Family Members: In addition to staff, employers participating in the Consortium may offer family and dependent coverage to their employees.
