Participate in the 2019 Summer Access to Justice Internship Program:
See how the skills you’re building to become a lawyer has the power to change lives.

TATJCwebAccess to Justice Internship Program (ATJIP) provides a unique opportunity for law students to participate in an internship with a civil legal aid organization. These internships educate students about the civil legal needs of low-income people and provide future lawyers with the skills to address these problems.

Each law student is supervised by accomplished lawyers and has the opportunity to provide direct legal services to low-income clients while receiving hands-on training and mentorship. Each supervising attorney provides their law students with a variety of experiences and assignments, including significant research and writing, which helps them learn about access to justice matters, legal decision-making, advocacy skills, attorney-client relationships, and legal institutions.

Prospective interns must secure placement with his/her desired legal services organization to be considered for an ATJ internship stipend.

Summer interns will receive a stipend of $5,000 for 400 hours of work.

The application period closes 5 pm, April 8, 2019; announcements will be made April 12.
