Internship and Volunteer Opportunities

Pro bono legal work, volunteers, and interns are an important part of our work.

Pro Bono Assistance

Are you a lawyer interested in volunteering your time and skills to represent a low-income client? We look forward to hearing from you; contact Jordan Mickman to learn about current opportunities.

Internship Opportunities

The Center for Justice welcomes internship applications from undergraduates and law students who are interested in working in a non-profit civil rights law firm and fulfilling our organizational mission. Interns at the Center for Justice work closely with staff attorneys in our focus areas of housing, utility rights of low-income consumers, wage theft, criminal justice and prisoners’ rights, education, and immigration.

Internships are unpaid; we encourage applicants to seek external funding, we actively support interns’ applications for such funding if you notify us how we can do so, and we ask that you proactively notify us of any funding-related deadlines.
