at at the New York and Washington, D.C. offices of at the Washington, D.C. and New York offices of NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund, Inc. (LDF). The two offices will be hosting internships.
Interns in summer litigation are responsible for conducting studies in the field of law, writing memos as well as gathering evidence. They also create educational and outreach materials such as discovery review and many other things when they occur in the context of LDF’s advocacy and litigation activities on Criminal Justice, Economic Justice, Political Participation and Education. You will be able to get valuable experience in attorneys who specialize in drug law as well as other practices. Students from all over the nation are invited to a number of brown bag luncheons involving renowned civil rights and public-interest lawyers as part of their exposure to various activities within the larger national civil rights coalition held in the summer.
Students should first seek funding through the school’s public interest programmes or through other sources. If they are not able to get funds through various sources, LDF may, at its discretion, offer suitable funding based on requirements. LDF prefers second-year law students, but they do consider first-year law students in certain situations. For summer internships, it is required for participants to commit to at least 10 weeks. Alternative arrangements are feasible in certain situations.
The first year of law school is the ideal time to engage in extracurricular activities. You should research different types of internships that are available for new law students to get every opportunity to be exposed to the industry. This will give you the foundation you need for the future.
