Legal Voice is a regional non-profit public interest organization that works to advance legal rights for women. Legal Voice’s litigation program brings impact cases with the potential to change the law or benefit large numbers of women. We work in the areas of reproductive rights, family law, lesbian rights, civil rights, violence against women, affirmative action, public benefits, prisoners’ rights, employment, health care, insurance and education.
Legal Voice’s Legal Internship Program gives law students a unique opportunity to work in a non-profit legal setting and make a contribution to women’s rights. Interns work closely with staff attorneys on current legal issues in women’s rights law. Generally, interns research legal issues, work on case development, investigate policy issues, and assist in preparing written materials for our website and publications.
