Fall and Spring Internships

The Fall and Spring Internship Programs provide opportunities for second, third, and fourth (part-time) year students to work as interns in legal services offices in New Orleans. Paid interns gain invaluable legal experience and skills while assisting the indigent in the community.

About the Fall and Spring Internship Programs

The Gillis Long Poverty Law Center requests applications for the internship programs each semester. Interested students may apply for the internship program by submitting a cover letter and résumé on Symplicity. After students apply through Symplicity, the Gillis Long Poverty Law Center forwards the applications to a list of participating offices in New Orleans. In the following weeks, offices will contact students directly to schedule interviews or extend job offers. Interns work for eight weeks during the semester, earning $2,000.00. The Center will send a check for the intern’s stipend to the participating office.

Students must apply for each internship program individually. Participation in the fall program does not require or guarantee participation in the spring or summer programs.
