Law Clerk Opportunities

Position Description: Law clerks will be assigned to a variety of projects and supervised by an ILRC attorney. Assignments span the ILRC's diverse project areas including policy, legal trainings, and immigrant civic engagement. For example, last year’s intern projects included, research and writing for ILRC’s practice advisories and manuals widely used by immigration practitioners; community engagement and community presentations; and work on implementing laws authored and co-sponsored by the ILRC. Each clerk is assigned an ILRC mentor attorney and the summer program includes immigration law trainings created especially for our law clerks.

Qualifications: Applicants with strong legal research and writing skills and a demonstrated commitment to immigration issues are encouraged to apply. A ten-week commitment is preferable and fluency in other languages is a plus. For further details on our summer clerkship program, see the posting above.

Law students are accepted for the spring and fall semesters and during the summer. We generally accept summer law student applications from January through February.

We accept law student applications to work during other times of the year on an ongoing basis. During the spring and fall semesters we ask that law students commit to a minimum of 12 hours per week for the entire semester.

For law student internship requests, we ask that you use the “Summer 2020 Law Program” link above to submit an application.
