The National LGBT Bar Association offers two fall internships!
If you are an undergrad or law student who is passionate about LGBTQ+ equality and is dedicated to justice for all marginalized groups, please read on below for what the position responsibilities are and why this is a wonderful opportunity for a law student or a student interested in social justice. Both internships receive a $1000 stipend.
Office Intern: You’ll be tasked with assisting us with our general programs – including cutting edge LGBTQ+ policy and legal work – and post-conference activities. Every year, with help from interns, we put on the Lavender Law® Conference and Career Fair. It is the largest minority legal career fair in the country, attended by more than 1,700 law students and legal professionals. You’ll help us prepare for and organize the 2020 conference, as well as assist with conference sponsorships, all the while interacting with some of the top legal minds in the country. Help ensure that law students and attorneys find their dream jobs, while also taking advantage of the opportunity to connect with our vast network of legal professionals. Fall interns assist with the post-conference cleanup and organizing. This position is based at our Washington, DC office.
Legal Intern: You’ll be tasked with assisting us with legal research and policy work, and with program development for LGBTQ+ and ally law students and attorneys. You’ll experience the nonprofit world while interacting with pro bono counsel at Am Law 100 firms and attorneys with years of experience in the LGBTQ+ advocacy realm. You’ll have the opportunity to make a difference on the issues you care about. Unlike the office intern, this intern has the option to work remotely. Also, please note that this internship is only open to current law students and 2019 law school graduates.
To apply, send resume and cover letter to email@example.com. Please include “Fall 2019 Office/Legal Internship” in the Subject. If you are interested in the Spring 2020 term, send email with “Spring 2020 Office/Legal Internship” in the subject line instead.
