New York Lawyers for the Public Interest (NYLPI), a non-profit civil rights law firm, pioneered the practice of community lawyering in the five boroughs of New York City. Our attorneys, community organizers, social workers and administrative staff work closely with community partners to advance equality across a range of issues, drawing upon our organizing and lobbying skills, media savvy, and bold, creative approaches to litigation.

NYLPI seeks highly accomplished, progressive, community-minded rising 3Ls to advance the goals of our programs. We provide significant and broad opportunities for professional development. Interns will receive a summer stipend of up to $5,500, together with funding for travel for those outside of NYC, upon documentation of best efforts to secure the maximum funding available from other sources.

Applications will be accepted beginning on Monday, August 18, 2014. Current 2Ls should submit a cover letter, a resume, and a short legal writing sample (no more than 6 pages) to Fabian Gomez at, with “Social Justice Summer Internship” in the subject line, as soon as possible but no later than Friday, October 10, 2014.
