Legal Internship – Summer 2017

Job Description

The Western Environmental Law Center (WELC) is accepting applications from law students currently in their second or third year of law school (2L or 3L) for summer 2017 legal internship positions to work with our attorneys in these locations: Helena, Montana; and Seattle, Washington. We are looking for bright and motivated individuals committed to public interest environmental law.

Under the supervision of a staff attorney in the office location in which they are hired, the selected interns will assist our attorneys with case development and strategy, conduct legal research, and draft pleadings, briefs, and other legal documents. The internships are unfunded positions. We will provide assistance to the selected applicants in seeking outside funding or law school credit, and in finding free or inexpensive housing. We offer a flexible summer work schedule to allow for outdoor recreation and travel.

Please email, as PDF attachments, a cover letter, resume, unofficial transcript, short writing sample of 3-5 pages, and a list of three references to internships@westernlaw.org.  Applications will be accepted on a rolling basis until the positions have been filled. Applications received by Friday, November 4, 2016 will be given first consideration. Incomplete applications will not be considered. Interviews will be conducted by phone.

Please indicate the following in your cover letter: (1) the WELC office location for which you are applying (if you wish to apply for both locations, please specify your order of preference); (2) if you are facing a funding or law school credit application deadline; and (3) your anticipated dates of availability for the summer position.

Western Environmental Law Center is a non-profit public interest environmental law firm. We use the power of the law to safeguard the wildlife, wildlands, and communities of the American West.

WELC is an Equal Opportunity Employer. Our programs and employment are open to all. We value diversity and do not permit any discrimination against applicants, employees, or volunteers on the basis of race, ethnicity, national origin, sex, age, religion, sexual orientation, marital status, veteran status, medical condition, or disability, or any other status protected by applicable law or statute in any of our policies or programs.
