We are seeking two legal interns for hire in the DC office: one legal intern to work with our Liberty and National Security (LNS) Program and one legal intern to work with the Director of our DC office on a variety of Brennan Center issues. Interns working in our Washington, DC office can expect their work to have a greater emphasis on advocacy and policy research than on litigation, though they will gain exposure to all facets of our work. The primary focus of the LNS internship is likely to be conducting research and writing memos on issues surrounding foreign intelligence surveillance, policing and technology, and government secrecy. The internship with the DC Office Director will entail a research and advocacy focus on issues within the scope of the Brennan Center’s justice and democracy work. The internships start in September/October 2016 and last for 10 weeks.
Qualifications: Excellent legal research, analysis, and writing skills; initiative, imagination, and versatility; and a passion for our issues.
The Brennan Center, an equal opportunity, affirmative action employer, is strongly committed to diversity and welcomes applicants of all races, ethnicities, genders, gender identity, and sexual orientations, including people who have been previously incarcerated.
How to Apply: Interested students should go to www.brennancenter.org/employment and upload, as a single document (where it says "attach resume"):
- A cover letter explaining which particular program or programs they are interested in joining;
- A legal writing sample of up to 10 pages;
