E-mail Joyce Poole (joycep@law.upenn.edu) and cc: clinic@law.upenn.edu with “NY Bar Employment Affidavit” in the subject line. Attach your Affidavit form to the e-mail. You will only need to complete the top section which includes your name, the Appellate Division and your BOLE ID #. In your e-mail please include:

  • The name of the Clinic(s) you were enrolled in. (Note that all currently enrolled Clinic students should only submit this request after the end of the semester’s examination period).
  • What semester/year you were enrolled and if you were an Advanced student. 
  • Name of your Faculty Supervisor.
  • Address where you would like the completed form to be mailed to (or advise if you prefer to pick the form up in our office). In addition to mailing the Affidavit to you, we will also e-mail you a pdf of the completed form.
  • Normal processing time is approximately 2 and a half weeks - please do not wait until the last minute to submit these forms as they may not be returned promptly if your Faculty Supervisor is not currently in the office or is otherwise unavailable when you make the request.
    • Note:  Externship students should contact their placement site Supervisor directly to complete this form.
