The Environmental Defense Center does not currently have any openings for interns. We do encourage you to check back, as interns do play a critical role in supporting our program staff on our cases and also helping us with coordination and execution of outreach and events.
Law Clerk Program
EDC hires law students for summer clerkships as well as externships during the regular school year. Law clerks and externs are involved in substantive activities such as conducting legal research; drafting memos and pleadings; participating in client meetings, strategy discussions and negotiations; appearing before public agencies; and observing court arguments. EDC attorneys involve students in every aspect of actual cases.
2L students with a background or interest in environmental law, and a demonstrated commitment to public interest work.
Please submit your cover letter, resume, writing sample, law school transcript, and a list of three references to Daniel Elkin at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We are no longer accepting applications for Summer 2021.
Applications for semester-length externships are accepted anytime, and evaluated on a rolling basis.
A Stipend and/or housing assistance may be available.
