Our interns have gone on to work for a wide variety of organizations, including federal and state governments, federal and state judges, national conservation groups, local citizen groups, Native tribes and labor unions.
Summer Associates typically work 40 hours a week for 10-12 weeks. Each Summer Associate is expected to secure their own funding and most receive public interest scholarships through their school or other sources.
