Each year, hundreds of people like you help us carry out our mission of pursuing justice for all women and girls in the Northwest. Our volunteers are a diverse team of individuals bound together by a desire to create positive change. Legal Voice could not provide the vital support it offers our community without the countless hours generously donated by our volunteers!

 

You don't have to be an attorney to volunteer with Legal Voice! We invite you to enhance your advocacy for women and girls in the Northwest by joining our team in a way that suits your interests, skills, and abilities.

Internships

Legal Internships


Our Legal Internship program gives law students a unique opportunity to work in a nonprofit legal setting while making a contribution to gender equity! Interns work closely with staff attorneys by researching legal issues, working on case development, investigating policy questions, and assisting in the preparation of written public education materials.

Our summer interns receive a stipend. The 2021 stipend amount was $7,500 for a ten week, full-time internship.

School-year positions will be held for students receiving externship credit.

*NOTICE: Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, interns and externs will work remotely until further notice.

For more information, including application requirements and deadlines, please see our complete Legal Internship Program document.
