Columbia Legal Services Internship Opportunity
Columbia Legal Services (CLS) is a nonprofit law firm that protects and defends the legal and human rights of low-income people. CLS is looking for a Summer Intern to create a report documenting the current state of the law and practice in Washington State regarding legal representation for children and youth in dependency proceedings. This report will be disseminated to stakeholders, including legislators, to help improve Washington’s current status as one of the worst states in the nation on this issue. The internship requires someone with excellent writing skills who can synthesize information from a number of different sources into a cohesive document. The applicant should know how to create high quality reports that use visuals. Some knowledge of the substantive issues involved would be helpful but not necessary. The internship is unpaid, and would run for 8-12 weeks between June 15 and September 15. The intern would work out of the Seattle offices of Columbia Legal Services in Pioneer Square.
