Lambda Legal's Education and Public Affairs Department seeks a law student or exceptional undergraduate for Fall, Spring and Summer semester internships.

Lambda Legal is the nation's oldest and largest legal organization committed to achieving full equality for lesbians, gay men, bisexuals, transgender people and people with HIV through impact litigation, education and public policy work. Founded in 1973 and headquartered in New York City, Lambda Legal has regional offices in Los Angeles, Chicago, Atlanta and Dallas. Lambda Legal's law reform, policy and education work encompasses a wide range of areas, including federal and state constitutional law issues, discrimination in employment, benefits, housing, insurance, schools and other areas, harassment and violence, antigay ballot initiatives, access to healthcare and HIV-related treatments, child custody, visitation and adoption, the freedom to marry and sodomy law reform.


The intern will assist primarily with Lambda Legal's Fair Courts Project. This internship will not offer any opportunity to be directly involved with any aspects of litigation.


Candidates should have a strong interest in Lambda Legal's work, and specifically in the Fair Courts Project. Candidates with experience related to these areas are preferred. Candidates should either be law students or have had substantial political science undergraduate course work.


As this is a volunteer nonpaying position, applicants are strongly encouraged to seek out and apply for grants from their school or other sources.
