Get your résumés polished and your writing samples ready! FIRE is now accepting applications for our 2017 Legal Internship.
FIRE’s Legal Internship Program invites rising 2L and 3L law students to spend the summer here in Philadelphia working with FIRE attorneys in defense of civil liberties on campuses nationwide.
Legal interns will perform vital research for FIRE’s Stand Up For Speech Litigation Project, assist FIRE’s Individual Rights Defense Program in responding to rights violations, and help FIRE’s Policy Reform Project secure policy reforms to protect student and faculty freedoms of speech, association, conscience, and religion.
Legal internships may be paid or unpaid, depending on individual students’ particular needs. Pursuit of independent funding and public interest fellowships is encouraged.
Full details about our Legal Internship Program, including application instructions, may be found here.
We look forward to hearing from you!
