We are now accepting applications for our 2022 Summer Internship Program!
Our program is seeking to hire both law student interns and undergraduate interns who are interested in working with faculty and staff on cases and projects. There is some flexibility concerning start and end dates as well as both full-time and part-time positions. Interns are expected to commit to at least 10 weeks and the internship program will run between the end of April 2022 and the end of August 2022. Due to the uncertainty of the COVID-19 pandemic, some internship logistics will be determined closer to the summer. Most likely, applicants will have the option to work remotely or with a hybrid model of both remote and in-person in Cambridge, depending on the needs of the program and applicant and the evolution of the pandemic. If a potential intern is not able to secure external or school funding, HIRCP will provide a summer stipend
Law student interns should indicate on their application whether they are interested in working with the Immigration and Refugee Advocacy Clinic or the Crimmigration Clinic. The Immigration and Refugee Advocacy Clinic primarily represents clients seeking different forms of humanitarian protection in the United States and the Crimmigration Clinic primarily works on issues concerning the intersection of criminal law and immigration law. Law student interns placed in either clinic can expect to work on a range cases and projects, including direct representation, appellate litigation, district court litigation, and policy advocacy.
Undergraduate interns will work with faculty and staff on administrative tasks and interpreting for clients and translating documents when appropriate. Undergraduate interns should indicate on their application whether they speak any languages other than English and their fluency level.
Interested applicants should submit a resume, cover letter, unofficial transcript, writing sample, and contact information for two references to Anna Weick at firstname.lastname@example.org. The deadline for submitting an application is January 21, 2022. Early applications are encouraged as offers will be made on a rolling basis.
