Our Spring and Summer 2013 internships are now closed to new applicants.
General Statement of Duties and Responsibilities:
Student interns are crucial to MLP | Boston’s capacity to meet the increasing demand for legal advocacy in the clinical setting. We recruit interns from a variety of academic backgrounds ranging from undergraduate students exploring public interest career options, to graduate, public health, law and medical students.
As varied as their backgrounds are, successful MLP | Boston interns have one quality in common: a sincere commitment to maximizing the well-being of families who face the myriad challenges of poverty and other inequities.
Requirements & Activities:
Prospective candidates must indicate a willingness to commit to a minimum of 16 hours per week during the academic year; interns seeking summer positions will be expected to work full-time from early June to mid-August, with few exceptions. We are unable to offer any paid internship positions due to budget constraints, but are able and willing to support most funding opportunities and scholarships identified by prospective candidates.
Under the supervision of attorneys and advocacy staff at MLP | Boston, interns provide legal advocacy to clients and administrative assistance to program staff. Interns handle client follow-up, factual investigation, legal research and various advocacy tasks. Other internship activities may include research and writing projects related to systemic advocacy efforts, assisting in development of training materials, and other program-related activities.
