Undergraduate Internships Available

Undergraduate Internship: Legal
A legal internship with Equal Rights Advocates is a fantastic opportunity for undergraduate students interested in social justice work, the legal profession, and nonprofit careers! Equal Rights Advocates (ERA) provides learning opportunities that contribute to our mission of achieving gender justice with collaborative projects that equip undergrads with research, writing, and administrative task skills in our Legal Department.
Interns in ERA’s Legal Department will learn about our historic wins for gender justice, our current impact litigation and legislative advocacy efforts, about basic legal communications and writing skills, as well as strategies for furthering gender justice civil rights. They will also build skills in an interdisciplinary professional environment that will contribute to their future job-seeking.
Interns in the Legal department also will learn about the legislative process and assist ERA’s legislative policy team in scheduling meetings with legislators, tracking bills, and other essential policy development and support tasks. Interns will receive an exposure to teamwork product collaboration in a nonprofit legal setting. Interns will work with law school externs, law clerks, and experienced lawyers and legal professionals to learn about the different paths to a legal career.
Due to an overwhelming volume of internship applications received, ERA will no longer accept applications for the 2023 Legal Internship for Summer. Please check back in May-June, 2023 for Fall Legal Internship opportunities.
