Internship Opportunities


Law Students

We are no longer hiring for summer 2017. Please consider applying for the fall or spring.

There are many opportunities for law students to work with lawyers at the ACLU of Illinois. We have an active docket of over 40 cases in federal and state trial and appellate courts, including the Illinois and U.S. Supreme Courts. There are summer and school-year positions, and a limited number of funded positions.

Applicants should send the following materials to legalinternships@aclu-il.org:
* Cover Letter
* Resumé
* Writing Sample
* Transcript
* Reference List

Please apply as early as possible; offers are extended as qualified people apply. Priority is given to law students who have completed their second year of law school. We are an affirmative action employer.
