Law Student / Legal Internships

SUMMER 2019: Filled

The National Immigration Project hosts law students both in the summer and during the academic year. Legal interns are exposed to a wide-range of legal research and writing projects, including amicus briefs, pleadings in affirmative lawsuits, practice advisories, legislative analysis, legal memorandum, and/or comments on proposed immigration regulations. In addition, legal interns coordinate and draft responses to letters from immigration detainees. Applicants must have taken an immigration law class or have past immigration experience, and a demonstrated commitment to immigrants’ rights. Students with law school clinical experience are encouraged to apply. Cover letters, resumes, and writing samples, as well as any questions, should be emailed to Elizabeth Simpson.

Communications and Resource Development Internships

SPRING/SUMMER 2019: Not currently available

Communications and Resource Development interns at the National Immigration Project assist our mission by supporting Communications initiatives, such as producing web-based content, expanding the organization’s public profile, and maximizing social media; and Resource Development initiatives, such as helping solicit and compile a Commemorative Program Book used at a major public event at the annual American Immigration Lawyers Association convention, and assisting the organization's membership of over 1,000 immigration legal practitioners nationwide. For Communications and Resource Development internships, all cover letters, resumes, writing samples, and questions should be directed by email to Pamela Goldstein.

Please note:
All internships are unpaid positions.

Resource Development/Communications internships are based in Boston. Legal internships vary.
