Legal Intern

The American Humanist Association's Appignani Humanist Legal Center accepts interns year-round. We are now considering applicants for the Summer of 2021.

The AHA’s legal arm, the Appignani Humanist Legal Center, handles constitutional litigation and church-state separation cases, with clients ranging from parents and students to federal inmates. The legal intern is primarily responsible for researching and writing legal memoranda and assisting in litigation under the supervision of the legal center’s attorneys. The intern may also be assigned the task of investigating new complaints, maintaining case files and submitting public records requests.

 

Qualifications: Applicants must be organized, self-motivated, reliable, and demonstrate an understanding of humanism and interest in progressive issues. Interns are expected to work at the American Humanist Association National Office, located at 1821 Jefferson Place NW, Washington, DC 20036, though the option to work remotely can be considered.

 

Preference is given to second- and third-year law students who have completed course work in legal research and writing. This internship will be a 10-week, full-time position with hourly pay at DC minimum wage. Start and end dates are negotiable, but will begin as early as May 2021 and end as late as September 2021.

To Apply: Send a cover letter with your area(s) of interest and availability, current resume, at least two professional references, and 2-3 recent writing samples to legalintern@americanhumanist.org.

Applications due April 30, 2021.
