FreeState is now accepting applications from law students interested in interning at FreeState during the summer of 2014.
Interns will assist LGBT clients on matters that may include name / gender changes, school bullying cases, foster care cases, etc. Interns can expect various assignments from drafting petitions to conducting legal research. Students will be expected to answer phones, conduct client intake, preliminarily assess legal issues and present them to the staff attorneys.
This is a comprehensive advocacy model, and is intended to allow student interns to act as creative lawyers and community advocates, combining direct representation, systemic advocacy and outreach / education components in a unified effort to advance the interests of low-income LGBT Marylanders.
Please forward an application packet to Rebecca Simpson at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Application packets should include:
– A cover letter
– A resume
– A writing sample
– An unofficial transcript
