People’s Law Office is accepting applications for our 2017 summer internship and educational program, which focuses on civil rights litigation rooted in social justice and radical legal work.
Interns will participate in a wide range of litigation-related work and will be exposed to a progressive law office that has been committed to being “people’s lawyers” since 1969. Our attorneys and legal workers have successfully fought for the civil and human rights of people who have been wrongfully convicted, falsely arrested and subjected to excessive force and torture at the hands of law enforcement officials and prosecutors. The office has also steadfastly represented political activists and individuals who have been targeted by governmental officials because of their political views or organizing work.
The program is open to law students. Candidates should demonstrate experience in and/or commitment to social justice, organizing and/or social movements. To apply please send a resume, cover letter and writing sample to firstname.lastname@example.org. Applications will be accepted until December 15, 2016 and will be reviewed on a rolling basis.
People of color, women, people of all gender identities and gender expressions, and persons with disabilities are encouraged to apply.
