Internships

  • Summer Legal Internship

    Every summer, Fair Share Housing Center hosts legal internships. Interns gain extensive experience in legal research, writing, and policy development in a closely supervised environment. Responsibilities are substantial: past interns have worked with attorneys to investigate municipal compliance with fair housing laws, researched opportunities for development of mixed-income developments near transit, drafted court documents including briefs for the state Appellate Division and Supreme Court. Interested interns also may have the opportunity to work on projects that integrate legal work with community organizing and/or housing development with FSHC’s partner organizations. We are particularly interested in hosting summer interns who may wish to develop applications for public interest fellowships with us post-graduation; FSHC has recently hosted an Equal Justice Works Fellow. Fair Share Housing Center also accepts a limited number of interns during the school year.

    Application Process and Qualifications: Some background in the land use or housing field is preferred, ideally including course work in land use, civil rights law, and/or administrative law. We prefer 2Ls but have also had 1Ls in the past. Fair Share Housing Center is an equal opportunity employer and particularly encourages applications from women and people of color. Applicants are encouraged to find outside funding from public interest programs at their law schools. Summer internships will run from early May through the end of July/early August. To apply, please send a cover letter, resume, the names and phone numbers/emails of at least two references, and a writing sample to lauradenker@fairsharehousing.org.

    Deadline: We expect to fill positions for the summer no later than March.
