Law Students

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. Please email cover letter and resume to Karen Holland, Director of Human Resources at karenh@nwjustice.org.

Fluency in Spanish is helpful in all positions and may be required for specific positions. Read our Law Student informational brochure for more information.

NJP is committed to the principle that an organization whose staff, Board and clients are diverse in background, experience, race, color, national origin, gender, age, religious preference, marital status, sexual orientation, sensory, mental or physical abilities, veteran status, and other qualities makes it stronger while reinforcing its commitment to basic fairness. People of color, people who identify as transgender, lesbian, gay, or bisexual, and those with disabilities are strongly encouraged to apply.
