Internships

SELC typically takes between two and four law student interns each summer and one or two interns during fall and spring. We also occasionally take on interns who have never attended law school. Interns work under the supervision of SELC attorneys and other staff conducting legal research and developing resources to enable the growth of sustainable, localized, and just economies.

Note that, due to limited supervisory capacity, SELC will not be taking new interns during summer of 2014If you are interested in being involved in our work, generally, we still welcome you to attend any of our many events, including Legal Cafesworkshops, and happy hours, in order to meet our staff members and make a personal connection.

Description: Interns will work under the supervision of SELC attorneys and other staff conducting legal research and developing resources to enable the growth of sustainable, localized, and just economies. Current or past interns have worked on projects such as:

  • Developing tools and information to enable bartering, time banks, and local currencies;
