We are grateful for our interns and externs!
Our internships are designed to engage students in supporting the provision of direct legal services and the promotion of systemic solutions, furthering our mission and facilitating professional development of law, undergraduate and graduate students. Interns will receive training and mentoring by our team of experienced attorneys and staff, gain experience in utilizing existing or learning new skill-sets to support our mission, and engage in the multi-faceted work of JusticeMatters—from assisting clients to systems-level advocacy.
Join the JusticeMatters team as we seek the freedom and flourishing of all people.
