Legal Defense Fund Policy Internship
The Legal Defense Fund Policy Internship is available to law students, with preference given to second and third-year students. As an intern, you will be responsible for policy research and analysis, memorandum writing, factual investigation, development of educational and outreach materials, and a host of other needs that arise in LDF’s policy efforts in the areas of Education, Political Participation, Economic Justice and Criminal Justice. Policy interns will also be exposed to a variety of activities within the national civil rights coalition, including for some terms a series of brown bag luncheons featuring prominent civil rights and public interest attorneys, attended by interns from numerous non-profit legal organizations. Internships are offered in New York, NY, and Washington, DC during the summer, fall, and spring.
