Internships

We’re Seeking Talent

Every year, LSIC welcomes talented and ambitious interns to work alongside our skilled lawyers in tackling issues of social justice and equality while gaining valuable insights into the day-to-day operations of a legal services nonprofit organization.

Our interns come from near and far with diverse academic interests and career aspirations. We offer meaningful, hands-on opportunities in the areas of  public interest law, nonprofit administration, development, communications (writing, social media, graphic design), event planning, and database marketing and analytics.

Some typical assignments include:

  • Researching statues and case law
  • Conducting investigations and interviewing clients
  • Testifying in court
  • Updating and making improvements to our donor database and case management software program
  • Creating blog posts
  • Designing short-term projects for our legal clinics
  • Planning events (identifying guest speakers, assisting with registration and preparation of promotional materials)
  • Attending brown bag lunches to discuss and learn from LSIC staff and guest speakers
