Summer Law Student Internships

NHLAA accepts applications for summer law student internships. Responsibilities typically include: interviewing clients, providing legal advice through oral and written communication, conducting outreach or know-your-rights programs, researching and drafting legal memos and court pleadings, and supporting attorneys with pending litigation and other advocacy projects. Law student interns (including rising 2Ls) may also have the opportunity to argue motions in court, participate in trials, or represent clients at administrative hearings. Proficiency in Spanish is preferred, but not required. Other foreign language abilities are welcome. NHLAA typically invites a group of three to six law students for internships each summer. Applicants expressing interest in summer law student internships only should contact Attorney Yonatan Zamir (yzamir@nhlegal.org) and Attorney Ellen Messali (emessali@nhlegal.org.

School-Year Law Student Internships:

We also accept applications for school-year internships. Although we do not have funds to pay interns, we are happy to sponsor students under all work study and public interest fellowship programs. Law student interns at NHLAA will work under the supervision of experienced attorneys. We cannot offer internships to 1L students. Applicants interested in an internship with NHLAA should send a resume and letter of interest to Deputy Director Elizabeth Rosenthal (erosenthal@nhlegal.org).
