Are you looking for an internship where you have the opportunity to learn and interact directly with an attorney in a congenial work environment? Are you tired of the endless circle of getting turned down for jobs because you lack experience? Do you want greater insight into the practice of law? Would you like the opportunity to make a direct impact in the lives of others?
This is a non-paid, part-time internship. You will receive hands-on experience for your resume. Great quality, detailed letters of recommendation will be made available based upon performance. We are happy to provide as many quality letters of recommendation as are needed, as long as you demonstrate skill and enthusiasm in your work. Tutorials with the attorney will be provided as the schedule allows. There may be opportunities to shadow the attorney during preparations, interviews, and/or court appearances as the schedule allows.
Interns will have the opportunity to develop beginning legal writing skills and learn what is involved in the practice of law. The position will also involve various other tasks, including interacting directly with clients, law enforcement authorities, and medical providers, amongst other duties.
Interested applicants should send a resume and a letter of interest to firstname.lastname@example.org. Personalized and creative letters will be considered first. Bilingual (Spanish) is preferred.
