STUDENT POSITIONS

SLC offers many student and post-graduate opportunities to train the next generation of public interest advocates.  We value the educational benefit provided for the students, but also greatly appreciate the impact their work has on SLC as an organization.  Students research the law; investigate the facts; conduct online research; analyze data; summarize discovery; index depositions; draft press releases and newsletters; and assist with fundraising events. Currently, all of our internships are unpaid positions.

Law Students conduct legal research and factual investigation; prepare legal memoranda; draft and review public records requests and responses; assist in all aspects of discovery such as document analysis, organization and indexing depositions; and assist in preparation of legal documents and pleadings. Since most of the work concerns federal court litigation, there is substantial legal research and writing involved. Excellent research, oral and written communication skills required with demonstrated interest in law, civil rights, and/or public policy. Second or third year students are preferred. How to Apply: Please email a cover letter, resume, writing sample and unofficial transcript (in PDF) to samantha.howell@southernlegal.org. Please indicate the position applying for in the subject. Be sure to include which semester you are available.

Law students may also inquire with the Center for Governmental Responsibility at the University of Florida Levin College of Law or with the Florida Bar Foundation about clerkships they sponsor at SLC.

Non-Law Students (Undergraduate and Graduate) will assist with factual investigation; review responses to public records requests and organize documents; and assist with various aspects of discovery such as document analysis, organization and indexing depositions. We will also work with students who wish to develop an independent research project that will meet their academic requirements as well as SLC’s organizational needs. Excellent research, oral and written communication skills required with demonstrated interest in law, civil rights, and/or public policy. Undergraduate juniors or above preferred. How to Apply: Please email a cover letter, resume, writing sample and unofficial transcript (in PDF) to samantha.howell@southernlegal.org. Please indicate the position applying for in the subject.
