Graduates for Justice: Program Guidelines

Interested graduates must comply with the following guidelines. 

  • Graduates may not seek a position without the approval of the Gillis Long Associate Director. This ensures a fair process for all interested applicants. Depending on available funds, the Gillis Long office will determine the number of placements.
  • Interns must complete the required contract before beginning the internship. Please be aware the contract is a binding document. Graduates should not accept an internship placement unless committed to completing the program.
  • The Gillis Long Poverty Law Center will send the intern's stipend to the host office. The office’s payroll department will answer questions regarding pay periods and tax withholdings.
  • Postgraduate interns may expect to work 35 hours per week.
  • Due to funding regulations, Gillis Long may not place interns in offices providing criminal legal services.
