Brooklyn A seeks bright, energetic students who are committed to, or interested in learning more about, a career in public interest law and working with a nonprofit organization.
Interns will be assigned to a specific program or department and, depending on assignment, may have the opportunity to do legal research and writing, client interviewing and counseling, community education, representation at administrative or court hearings, and trial advocacy. In addition, through special programs and training sessions, interns will be exposed to the full range of Brooklyn A’s practice.
Unless otherwise noted, Brooklyn A’s internships are unfunded. Students must either volunteer or secure outside funding through work study, law school or foundation-funded public interest fellowships, or similar programs. Many former interns have successfully arranged for their own funding by combining work-study and public interest grants. Students should inquire about public interest funding sources at their law school.
Brooklyn A accepts applications for internships on a rolling basis year round. Interested students should send a resume and cover letter indicating, in order of preference, the program they are interested in and available hours. All applications should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
