LINK: “Legal Intern” – Natural Resources Defense Council

Location: Chicago, IL

Description:
Chicago legal interns do legal research and writing to support litigation and policy advocacy projects, in collaboration with and under the supervision of NRDC lawyers. NRDC’s Chicago-based attorneys work on a range of issues, so specific assignments will depend on those attorneys’ immediate priorities and needs. Projects may involve protection of public lands and wildlife; better control of air and water pollution from industrial activity; promotion of clean energy and energy efficiency; or litigation on a wide range of environmental or public health issues. Legal interns are typically assigned work for several different attorneys over the course of their internships, but a single Chicago-based attorney is responsible for coordinating all legal intern assignments and making sure that each intern gets interesting, challenging, and varied work and timely feedback on that work.

Legal interns must be able to work at least two full business days a week over the course of the spring academic term (late March/early April through June) in NRDC’s Chicago office (downtown in the Civic Opera Building at 20 North Wacker Drive). Full-time interns are welcome. These internships are unpaid, but we will work with successful candidates who are enrolled in law school to help them claim any academic credit that their law schools may offer.
