Calling All Law Students

By April 22, 2008

FIRE is still seeking applicants for its Legal Internship Program for this summer. Legal interns will work extensively with lawyers here at FIRE supporting our ongoing advocacy efforts, performing research for our legal fellows, and being involved in many other aspects of FIRE’s mission. This is a great internship for first or second year law students interested in doing research-intensive work on the constitutional issues surrounding free speech, due process, and religious liberty, with a focus on higher education.

Also, these internships can be based either at FIRE’s main office in Philadelphia or at FIRE’s new field office located in midtown Manhattan, depending on a candidate’s preferences. This provides a great option for those who are interested in the position but may not have a lot of flexibility when it comes to moving during the summer.

Prospective candidates should send in their applications right away.

FIRE is seeking legal interns for the coming summer. FIRE has several attorneys on staff and has an ongoing need for quality legal research and writing. Recent projects included an amicus brief to the Supreme Court and a report analyzing First Amendment violations in a major state university system. FIRE is planning to coordinate more lawsuits in the near future as part of our Speech Codes Litigation Project (state schools, we’re watching you!) and legal interns will assist in this process as well.
