Undergraduate interns in Americans United’s Legal Department will have the opportunity to work with attorneys on cutting-edge First Amendment lawsuits and investigations into violations of the separation of church and state. Projects may include a variety of research assignments; drafting public records requests and reviewing documents obtained in response to such requests; and preparing multimedia exhibits to be used in legal briefs, depositions, or trials.
This is an excellent opportunity to develop research and writing skills, to obtain first-hand experience in a high-profile area of constitutional law, and to work directly with attorneys in a public-interest organization. Applicants should have creativity, excellent writing and research skills, and the willingness to be a self-starter.
How to apply: Please email a cover letter, resume, undergraduate transcript, writing sample, and the names of three references to Ian Smith and Thelma Scott at firstname.lastname@example.org. No faxes or telephone calls please.
Deadline: Positions will remain open until filled, but candidates are encouraged to apply by February 28, 2014.
