Here’s an opportunity for law students to intern at the Brennan Center for Justice at NYU Law School’s Liberty and National Security Program. The Brennan Center emails:
We are looking for outstanding law students who are interested in spending the summer interning for the Liberty and National Security program at the Brennan Center, in either its NY or its DC office. We would especially welcome students with a demonstrated passion for issues of civil liberties and national security, and we seek a summer class with diversity of all kinds.
Past interns have worked on a wide range of projects; do note that LNS tends not to be a litigation-heavy program, so the work is more likely to involve research and writing for major policy reports, FOIA requests, testimony before Congress, presentations, etc. The interns will work closely with the attorneys in the LNS program, and the interns in the NY office will have access to the attorneys and interns in the other programs (Democracy and Justice) as well as a summer-long brown bag lunch series to introduce them to the Brennan Center’s work. The intern in the DC office will travel to NY at least once during the summer. Interns are encouraged to apply for funding through their law school and fellowship programs, but the Brennan Center will be able to provide a stipend to students who aren’t able to secure another source of funding.
More information about the LNS program is available here. The online portal for applications is here. Please encourage students to apply soon; we’ll be looking at 2L applications over the next couple of weeks, and at 1L applications later in the winter. And please feel free to share this announcement widely!
