Employment Type: 
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.

Applicants should have creativity, excellent writing and research skills, and the willingness to be a self-starter.
