The Rhode Island Center for Justice is a non-profit public interest law center located in Providence, Rhode Island. Our mission is to expand access to justice for low-income communities throughout the State by providing civil legal representation and strategic advocacy in partnership with community based organizations.

The Center for Justice is accepting applications for Fall 2016 and Spring 2017 legal internships.
The Center’s legal practice areas currently include housing, workers’ rights and immigration.

Interns will be immersed in a range of legal activities, working alongside staff attorneys and supervised by the Center’s Executive Director. We aim to provide meaningful opportunities for law students to interact with community organizers, social service providers, civic leaders and others with whom the Center partners to address the root causes of poverty and injustice. Internships will also be designed to include a significant emphasis on core lawyering skills such as client interviewing, fact gathering and investigations, legal research and writing, negotiations and court appearances. As our inaugural summer internship program, this will be a unique and exciting opportunity to contribute toward the building of a vital new justice center in the State of Rhode Island.
Law students with relevant foreign language abilities and clinical experience are highly encouraged to apply.

To apply, please send a cover letter, resume, transcript, and writing sample to Director of Community Partnerships and Advocacy, John Willumsen-Friedman, at jwillumsen@centerforjustice.org
