Clause 40 Foundation seeks current law students to serve as Legal Interns in Washington, D.C. each summer.
Clause 40 Foundation is a nonpartisan, nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization whose mission is to honor, preserve, and promote the constitutionally guaranteed due process rights in the criminal legal system.
Duties and experiences
Experiences for Clause 40’s legal interns can include (but are not limited to):
Clause 40 Foundation has a dynamic and collaborative environment that prioritizes mentorship and the development of its staff, including interns. Candidates can expect to learn more about the importance of the due process rights guaranteed in the Constitution and how public education, research, and litigation can advance the protection of these rights.
Clause 40’s offices on Capitol Hill are shared with our sister organization, Due Process Institute, which lobbies Congress on criminal law issues. Our staff come from a variety of political perspectives but have a shared passion for protecting the constitutional rights of those involved in our justice system. We are an equal opportunity organization aiming to create a culture that is diverse and equitable. Candidates should be prepared to work in a diverse and bipartisan environment where co-workers and allies hold a variety of personal and political viewpoints.
This internship program is unpaid, but Clause 40 Foundation is open to partnering with other organizations that can provide accepted candidates with a stipend during their time with our organization.
Please submit a resume, cover letter, and writing sample that represents your best work and that is substantially authored and edited by you alone. The writing sample should be 10 pages maximum (excised portions of longer works are acceptable). Applications will be reviewed and interviews will be scheduled on a rolling basis. All application materials should be directed to Carolyn Iodice at firstname.lastname@example.org.
