Law Student Volunteers and Internships

Western Center hosts volunteer law students in spring and fall semesters and summer law school interns who demonstrate interest in social, racial, and economic justice. The 2024 summer application period is now closed (as of February 15, 2024).

For volunteering inquiries, email [email protected].


Western Center welcomes fellowship applications from current law school 3Ls or recent graduates. Project proposals should combine litigation, legislative, and administrative advocacy with community outreach, public education, and other needed services related to housing, healthcare, economic justice, and/or access to justice.

Interested individuals should send a cover letter, resume, law school transcript, three references, and two writing samples to Stephanie Surabian, Director of Finance and Administration, at [email protected], with “Fellowship Project” and your Last Name in the subject header. Applications will be accepted beginning April 1, 2024, and reviewed on a rolling basis.

Western Center strives for a diverse and inclusive workforce. We are proud to be an equal opportunity employer. Western Center strongly encourages persons of color, women, LGBTQ individuals, persons with disabilities, and persons from other underrepresented groups whose background may contribute to effectively representing low-income people and underserved communities to apply.
