Summer & Academic Year Internships

Summer Internships

Mobilization for Justice accepts applications from law students with excellent legal research and writing skills as well as a demonstrated commitment to civil legal services. Throughout our ten-week program, interns will have the opportunity to engage directly with our diverse clients, meaningfully participate in ongoing litigation, and conduct research to advance policy initiatives of interest to our target populations. Supervising attorneys and staff conduct weekly lunch seminars on various substantive areas.
