Summer 2023 Internship Program – Law Students (Virtual/In Person)
Our Summer Internship Program is designed to expose committed and talented public interest law students to all aspects of legal advocacy for abused, neglected and trauma-exposed children. Rising second- and third-year law students will have the opportunity to work on projects spanning the Law Center’s Caregiver Advocacy, Domestic Violence, Education, Young Adult Legal Assistance, and Youth Empowerment practice groups. Past volunteer, internship, or career-related experience in family law, special education, civil legal services (tenant rights and eviction, identification, government assistance, expungement, and discrimination), or juvenile law matters is useful—but not essential.
For Summer 2023, we welcome applications from law students seeking to work locally or remotely. Preference will be given to applicants who intend to work in Denver for the majority of the summer. Whether working virtually or on site, successful applicants will be interested in meaningfully contributing to our work, self-driven, and able to maintain a consistent schedule.
The Children’s Law Center invites letters of interest from applicants interested in applying for a post-graduate fellowship hosted by our agency. We are interested in supporting projects for applications by rising 3Ls, recent law grads, and judicial clerks to the Skadden Fellowship Foundation, Equal Justice Works, or other fellowship programs. A successful candidate will be able to create a fellowship proposal rooted in their passion and experience, while also seeking to expand or enhance the Children’s Law Center’s existing work and mission.
Submissions will be accepted through July 7, 2023, or until position is filled.
