The Brennan Center for Justice at New York University School of Law is a non-partisan public policy and law institute that focuses on the fundamental issues of democracy and justice. Our work ranges from voting rights to campaign finance reform, from racial justice in criminal law to presidential power in the fight against terrorism. A singular institution – part think tank, part public interest law firm, part advocacy group – the Brennan Center combines scholarship, legislative and legal advocacy, and communications to win meaningful, measurable change in the public sector.
Responsibilities: We are seeking a legal intern for hire to work with the Director & Counsel of our Washington, DC office on a variety of Brennan Center issues. Under the supervision of the Director & Counsel, the intern will undertake legal and legislative research; attend congressional briefings and hearings; and contribute to the advocacy goals of the Washington office, which includes opportunities to participate in coalition engagement within the federal legislative process. The internship will entail a research and advocacy focus on issues within the scope of the Brennan Center’s justice and democracy work. The internship starts in January 2018 and lasts for 10 weeks.
Qualifications: Excellent legal research, analysis, and writing skills; initiative, imagination, and versatility; and a passion for our issues.
