Pennsylvania Legal Aid Network, Inc. is currently seeking first and second year law students to participate in our 2017 Martin Luther King, Jr. Summer Internship Program. This is a paid internship program that is designed is to promote cultural and ethnic diversity in legal services and to honor Dr. King. All interested law students are encouraged to apply.
Participants in the program are placed within the nine regional and six specialty legal aid programs that comprise the Pennsylvania Legal Aid Network. Over a ten week period, law students will experience the real world of legal advocacy through direct client contact, participation in court and administrative hearings (for those certified), and legal research and writing on actual cases under the supervision of seasoned legal aid attorneys.
Interns are challenged to put classroom training and talent to work on behalf of the many needy individuals the Pennsylvania Legal Aid Network serves and to work creatively to reduce the barriers to a more just society. Each MLK intern is treated as a valuable member of the legal staff and is expected to participate in case strategy and contribute to overall case management.
A current first or second year law student may indicate their interest in participating in the MLK summer internship program by sending a letter (expressing interest and location/program preferences); a resume; a transcript (official or unofficial); and three (3) references to:
