Summer Internship with the National Women's Law Center

 The Position

The National Women’s Law Center (NWLC) seeks an intern for the summer to support its Strategy & Policy Team. The Strategy & Policy Team is a cross-cutting team that coordinates state and federal work at the National Women’s Law Center.

  • Please note: Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, this internship opportunity will be fully remote for the summer.

The Organization

The National Women’s Law Center fights for gender justice — in the courts, in public policy, and in our society — working across the issues that are central to the lives of women and girls.

We use the law in all its forms to change culture and drive solutions to the gender inequity that shapes our society and to break down the barriers that harm all of us — especially those who face multiple forms of discrimination, including women of color, LGBTQ people, and low-income women and families.

For almost 50 years, we have been on the leading edge of every major legal and policy victory for women. Find out more at
