Job Opening: Summer 2020 Legal Advocacy Interns
Public Knowledge is currently hiring legal advocacy interns for summer 2020. Applicants must be current law students and must have a strong interest in the policy making process — the U.S. Congress, the executive branch, and agencies such as the FCC. Applicants should have a demonstrated interest in public interest (non-profit) technology policy, including issues arising under internet, telecommunications, copyright, patent, privacy, and international law. Internships are generally about 10 weeks, approximately the end of May or first week of June to early-August.
Public Knowledge is committed to ensuring that all interns are compensated for their work. We will work with exceptional candidates who do not receive funding from their schools to attempt to secure alternate third-party sources of summer funding.
To apply, send a cover letter describing your experience and interest in public interest work and Public Knowledge’s work, resume, law school transcript (unofficial), two references (preferably job-related), and a writing sample or excerpt of less than three pages to email@example.com. Applications will be considered on a rolling basis through April 1, 2020. Interested applicants are encouraged to apply early.
