Louisiana Capital Assistance Center

Position: Summer 2017 Intern

Application Period Extended thru January 1, 2017

The Louisiana Capital Assistance Center (LCAC) is soliciting applications for internship positions in its New Orleans office.

The LCAC is a non-profit public interest law firm founded in New Orleans in 1993, with offices in New Orleans and Shreveport, Louisiana.    The LCAC represents indigent defendants in capital cases – primarily at trial, but also on direct appeal, in state post-conviction and in federal habeas proceedings.  We represent clients in Louisiana, Mississippi, Texas and in federal cases.

In recent years, Louisiana and the LCAC have been at the cutting edge of capital defense litigation, particularly in areas such as prosecutorial misconduct, racial and religious discrimination, adequate indigent defense funding and the capital prosecution of those with serious mental impairments.   In the context of its casework, the LCAC pursues impact litigation in critical areas so as to advance the position of indigent capital defendants more generally. The LCAC emphasizes excellence and creativity in capital practice as well as making the client the center of all efforts in the case.

Interested applicants should provide the following by email to Abigail Crick at acrick@thejusticecenter.org: cover letter discussing your interest in the position, CV, and contact information for three references.  The deadline for applications is January 1.
