Summer 2017 Legal Advocacy Interns
Public Knowledge is currently hiring legal advocacy interns for summer 2017. Applicants must be current law students. Applicants must have a strong interest in the U.S. policy making process — the U.S. Congress, the executive branch, and agencies such as the Federal Communications Commission. 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 first week of June to mid-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 help 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 or official), two references (preferably job related), and a writing sample or excerpt of less than three pages to firstname.lastname@example.org. Applications are now being accepted and will be considered on a rolling basis until February 24, 2017.
