SUMMER 2018 LEGAL INTERNSHIP OPPORTUNITY

SUMMER 2018 LEGAL INTERNSHIP OPPORTUNITY
American Civil Liberties Union Foundation
Lesbian Gay Bisexual Transgender & HIV Project, New York

 For nearly 100 years, the ACLU has been our nation’s guardian of liberty, working in courts, legislatures, and communities to defend and preserve the individual rights and liberties guaranteed by the Constitution and laws of the United States.  Whether it’s ending mass incarceration, achieving full equality for the LGBT community, establishing new privacy protections for our digital age, or preserving the right to vote or the right to have an abortion, the ACLU takes up the toughest civil liberties cases and issues to defend all people from government abuse and overreach. With more than a million members, activists, and supporters, the ACLU is a nationwide organization that fights tirelessly in all 50 states, Puerto Rico, and Washington, D.C., for the principle that every individual’s rights must be protected equally under the law, regardless of race, religion, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, age, disability or national origin.

The Lesbian Gay Bisexual Transgender and HIV Project of the ACLU’s National Office in New York City seek legal interns for the Summer of 2018.  A stipend is available for those students who do not receive outside funding and/or course credit.  Arrangements can also be made with the student’s law school for work/study stipends or course credit.

OVERVIEW

Founded in 1986, the Lesbian Gay Bisexual Transgender (LGBT) & HIV Project is a division of the national office of the ACLU.  It is part of the ACLU’s Center for Liberty, which encompasses the ACLU’s work on women’s rights, reproductive freedom, LGBT rights and the rights of people living with HIV, and freedom of religion and belief.  The Center for Liberty is dedicated to the principle that we are all entitled to determine the course of our lives based on who we are and what we believe, free from unreasonable government constraint and baseless stereotypes

The goal of the Project is to create a just society for all LGBT people and people living with HIV regardless of race or income.  Through litigation, lobbying, public education, and organizing, we work to build a country where our communities can live openly without discrimination and enjoy equal rights, personal autonomy, and freedom of expression and association.

The Project brings “impact” lawsuits in state and federal courts throughout the country – cases designed to have a significant effect on the lives of LGBT people and those with HIV/AIDS.  The Project’s legal strategies are built on the idea that fighting for civil rights means not only persuading judges but also ultimately changing the way people think.  As the Project litigates for change, it implements targeted media, online and outreach campaigns to change public attitudes through education and to give people on the frontlines the tools they need to act.

As a part of the ACLU, the Project is in a unique position to work for equality.  The ACLU’s national network of affiliates broadens the Project’s reach into every locality and into the federal government.  Today, the ACLU brings more LGBT cases and advocacy initiatives than any other national civil rights organization.  The Project strives to ensure that the racial and economic diversity of the LGBT community is reflected in its work and continues to explore ways to make its efforts more sensitive to the needs of people of color and people who are economically disadvantaged.  The Project’s work as part of the broad civil liberties agenda of the ACLU exemplifies the notion that the LGBT community and the community of those living with HIV/AIDS must work in concert with other social change movements in order to achieve a just society for all.

INTERNSHIP OVERVIEW

The internship offers the opportunity to work on all aspects of litigation.   The Internship is full-time and typically requires a 10-week commitment.

ROLES AND RESPONSIBILITIES

Legal interns will have the opportunity to gain valuable experience by working alongside the LGBT and HIV Project team.  Interns will gain experience by:

  • Conducting factual and legal research related to ongoing litigation.
  • Researching prospects for new litigation, including both factual and legal claims.
  • Assistance in drafting of pleadings, briefs and other litigation documents.
  • Researching and drafting materials for public education.

DESIRED EXPERIENCE AND QUALIFICATIONS

The legal internship is open to all law students who will have completed their first year of law school before the internship commences.  Desired qualifications include:

  • Excellent research, writing, analytical and communication skills.
  • The initiative to see projects through to completion.
  • The ability to work with a wide range of people.
  • Familiarity with civil rights and civil liberties issues affecting LGBT people and those living with HIV/AIDS is desirable; commitment to these issues is essential.

HOW TO APPLY

Applicants should send a cover letter describing their interest in LGBT and AIDS-related issues and civil liberties, including any relevant life or work experience gained before or during law school; a resume; the names and telephone numbers of three references; and a legal writing sample to  hrjobsLGBT@aclu.org – It is imperative that you reference [LGBTH Summer 2018 Legal Internship/ACLU-W] in the subject line.
