Democracy Forward is accepting applications from law students for paid summer internships to carry out its mission to use the law to build collective power and advance a bold, vibrant democracy for all people via litigation and regulatory engagement. 

Key Responsibilities

Legal interns will assist Democracy Forward lawyers with every aspect of our work: collaborating with other legal organizations, developing cases, preparing legal briefs, complaints, comments in regulatory proceedings, and other filings, assisting with oral argument preparation, and coordinating with other team members on any number of matters.

Applications for full-time summer internships will be considered on a rolling basis, consistent with NALP guidelines. Please provide a resume, transcript (unofficial or official), and writing sample.  

Democracy Forward is an equal opportunity employer. We value a diverse workforce and an inclusive culture. We encourage applications from all qualified individuals. We strongly encourage people of color; lesbian, bisexual, transgender, queer, and intersex people; women; people with disabilities; and veterans to apply. Please note that all lawyer positions require a law degree and active membership in the bar of a state or the District of Columbia.
