CREEC Seeks Legal Interns for Summer 2016

The Civil Rights Education and Enforcement Center (CREEC) invites applications for internships from law students. Two legal internship positions are available in Denver and one position is available in Berkeley.

Legal interns work under the supervision of attorneys on all aspects of individual and class action civil rights cases from inception through resolution. Interns may be asked to work on projects including working on factual and legal investigations, interviewing potential clients and class members, and researching and drafting legal memoranda, as well as portions of motions, briefs, discovery, and pre-litigation demand letters. Interns may also be included in strategy discussions and preparation for depositions, mediations, and court proceedings. Legal interns may also work on developing outreach and educational materials.

CREEC seeks interns who have strong research, writing, and communication skills; who are enthusiastic, creative, and detail-oriented; and who have a commitment to work for civil rights and social justice.

Summer internships are unpaid, although students are encouraged to seek outside funding from their law schools or public interest foundations. Interns are expected to work 40 hours per week for 10 weeks, although other arrangements may be accommodated on a case-by-case basis. Positions will be filled on a rolling basis.
