- Summer Law Student Interns, USA

Summer Law Student Interns
Lambda Legal

Location: USA -
New York, Chicago, Los Angeles, Atlanta, Dallas, and Washington DC

Description –  Responsibilities

Primarily, summer interns assist attorneys with investigation, research and drafting in ongoing cases, prospective cases, and amicus curiae briefs, in all areas of sexual orientation, gender identity, and HIV discrimination. Interns may also research, draft, and/or edit publications on these issues for public education, and will assist in maintenance and expansion of resources for our national legal Help Desk.

Qualifications

Because of the focused and challenging nature of the work Lambda Legal does, we prefer to hire law students who have some experience with issues relating to our mission. Thus, a background in or familiarity with issues important to lesbians, gay men, bisexuals, transgender people, and those with HIV will greatly strengthen an application. Commitment to public interest law also greatly strengthens an application. Considering the amount of independent work required, second- and third-year students are preferred. Lambda Legal encourages applications from people of color and people with disabilities, including HIV.

Compensation

This is a volunteer nonpaying position. Summer interns are strongly encouraged to seek out and apply for grants from their school and/or funding from other sources.

Application

Students interested in summer internships should apply beginning in the fall. We begin hiring as the applicant pool allows and continue until all spaces are filled. Applicants should send resume, cover letter, and short writing sample to the particular offices where an internship is desired. Applicants should also be sure to include in their cover letter whether they are applying to more than one of Lambda Legal's offices. No phone calls, please.
