Frequently Asked Questions

What is the Hourly Associate program?

LAWCLERK designed the Hourly Associate program to give freelance lawyers aka “Remote Associates” another option to find work and build their freelance legal career. If you are selected as a so-called Remote Associate, you will be matched with the Hiring Attorney to provide them assistance on an as-needed hourly basis. You will be paid an hourly rate as work is completed. Some weeks there may be lots of work and other weeks there may be little or no work assigned.

How long of a time commitment do I have to make?

There is no minimum for the Hourly Associate program. Each Hourly Associate opportunity will include an estimate of the anticipated length of the engagement, as well as the estimated number of hours of work they expect to assign each week. Once you are selected as a Remote Associate, the Hiring Attorney will send you varying amounts of work as they need help. If your situation changes and you are no longer able to provide services as a Remote Associate, just notify the Hiring Attorney and your LAWCLERK advisor. You can opt out of the Hourly Associate program at any time. However, when you apply for an Hourly Associate opportunity, you must have capacity and intend to work for the full estimated duration and the number of hours per week. Please do not apply if you are not able to fulfill the parameters of the posted Hourly Associate opportunity.

How will I know how many hours I have worked?

Your LAWCLERK dashboard will keep you updated on the status of how many you have logged. The dashboard will show you the set maximum weekly hours, the hours logged this week, the hours logged this month and also the hours logged in the previous month.
You are required to log the hours you work as a Remote Associate in the LAWCLERK dashboard every week. Your hours are due on Sunday. A timecard will be sent to you and the Hiring Attorney every Monday for review. The Hiring Attorney has until Friday of that week to address any concerns with the prior week’s logged time.

How does insurance work with Hourly Associate?

The Remote Associate is not required to carry professional liability insurance because the work you will be doing will not cause you to engage in the practice of law. The professional liability insurance and ultimate responsibility for the work product will be that of the Hiring Attorney.

What kind of work can I do as a Remote Associate?

Remote Associates can help with any type of written work. You can assist with research, discovery and drafting any sort of document.

How often will I be paid for work I do via the Hourly Associate program?
Payments to Remote Associates will be made by direct deposit. LAWCLERK will initiate payments on Mondays, which, depending on your financial institution’s regulations, may take several days to be available in your account.
