Internship Opportunities

Law Clerk Needed -- Washington, DC

Just like most other non-profit organizations in Washington, the Center for Law and Education desires a volunteer law clerk. The psychic satisfaction you get from this position won't keep your landlord at bay for more than three seconds, but the experience will be invaluable. You'll work with one of the nation's premiere education advocacy organizations, advancing quality education for all students. You'll work with experienced, sophisticated advocates who will love you for lightening their loads and who can write sterling letters of recommendation. You'll do substantial work on substantial issues. You'll get to test your interest in entering the non-profit advocacy world.

We will put effort into helping you develop your skills as an advocate. We prefer a commitment of at least ten hours per week for at least one semester. These hours do not necessarily need to be spent at our office, but regular visits to the office will be necessary. For summer internships, we need a commitment of full or nearly full-time for at least eight weeks. Some experience with legal research and analysis is necessary for you to do the envisioned work. Some experience in education law or practice will speed your way.

Interested? Submit a cover letter explaining your interest, a resume, and a writing sample via e-mail to pweckstein@cleweb.org
