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. Our 2022 summer application process is now closed.

For volunteering inquiries, email [email protected].


Western Center welcomes applications from third year law students/law school graduates seeking Skadden, Equal Justice Works, school-based, or similar fellowships. We are looking for eligible fellowship applicants for a project that will focus on children and youth access to mental health services in California. More information about the project can be accessed here. For this fellowship project, a successful applicant can work out of our Los Angeles or Sacramento office.

Western Center strives for a diverse and inclusive workforce. We are proud to be an equal opportunity employer. Western Center strongly encourages people of color, women, LGBTQ individuals, persons with disabilities, and people from other underrepresented groups whose background may contribute to effectively representing people experiencing poverty and underserved communities to apply. To be considered, please email Stephanie Surabian, Director of Finance and Administration, at [email protected] with “Fellowship Project” and your Last Name in the subject line, with the following materials as attachments:

  • cover letter
  • resume
  • law school transcript
  • two writing samples (not to exceed 10 pages each)
  • and a list of three references.

Applications are due by June 15 and will be considered on a rolling basis.
