Paid Undergraduate Spring and Summer Internships at Brennan Center for Justice at NYU School of Law


The Brennan Center for Justice at NYU School of Law is a nonpartisan law and policy institute that seeks to improve the systems of democracy and justice in the United States. They work to hold our political institutions and laws accountable to the twin American ideals of democracy and equal justice for all. The Brennan Center’s work ranges from voting rights to campaign finance reform, from ending mass incarceration to preserving Constitutional protections in the fight against terrorism. Part think tank, part advocacy group, part cutting edge communications hub, they start with rigorous research, craft innovative policies, and we fight for them – in Congress and the states, in the courts, and in the court of public opinion.
