NJP welcomes law students to apply for externships/internships anytime during the year. Currently, NJP will only be able to offer positions to those students whose internships are totally or partially self-supported, whether it be through a law school public interest program, an externship for credit, work-study, or a willingness to volunteer. Summer internships are generally available in most of NJP’s offices. Other opportunities are listed below. When applying, please specify the location(s) you are interested in pursuing. NJP starts accepting summer internship applications in the fall. We will accept letters/emails of interest in externships or fellowships anytime during the year.
