The Durham-based Law Office of Mark L. Hayes is proud to announce the hiring of its first intern for the summer of 2015 – University of North Carolina School of Law student Kevin Cleys. The rising third year student, a President of the UNC Sports and Entertainment Law Association and former staff member of the North Carolina Journal of Law & Technology, will work with Mr. Hayes, himself a UNC School of Law graduate, on several cases this summer, as well as on updating the firm’s website.
The firm handles all manner of appellate cases, with a large caseload of criminal and family appeals. Mr. Hayes has represented clients at the North Carolina Court of Appeals, the North Carolina Supreme Court, and the United States Supreme Court. He recently participated in arguments at Wake Forest School of Law for the case State v. Monroe and is always happy to speak with law students and faculty after such law school appearances to provide hands-on learning opportunities. Mr. Hayes’ recent United States Supreme Court case, Grady v. North Carolina, was widely covered in the national media. The case involved the Fourth Amendment, GPS tracking, and privacy rights.
The two are very excited to work together this summer, hoping that each can bring his own unique set of skills to bear in passionately and professionally assisting the firm’s numerous and diverse clients.
