Fall Legal Internship

Children’s Rights seeks committed and enthusiastic law students to intern in our office in the fall of 2016. Because of the relatively small size of our organization, interns enjoy tremendous responsibilities and assist Children’s Rights’ attorneys with all aspects of our pending class action impact litigation cases. Responsibilities may include assisting with trial preparation, conducting legal research, drafting pleadings and briefs, assisting with discovery, helping prepare for depositions, participating in strategy sessions, attending meetings with defendants and stakeholders, and contacting sources.

First- and second-year law students are encouraged to apply. Applicants should have strong analytical and writing skills and an interest in public interest law. Experience with or interest in child welfare issues is highly desirable but not necessary. Applicants must be prepared to commit a day and a half per week for 10 weeks. Internships at Children’s Rights are unpaid.

Children’s Rights is an equal opportunity, affirmative action employer, and women, people of color, lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender people and people with disabilities are encouraged to apply.
