Many students come to HRI seeking internship or service learning opportunities. We have supervised undergraduate and graduate interns along with law students. HRI believes in teaching through hands-on experience and providing our interns with opportunities to see the true nature of practicing law, serving at a non-profit, and working as part of our team.  Our interns work closely with our department directors and provide valuable work to support our clients’ cases.  We would not be able to do our work without them!

Human Rights Initiative offers competitive Spring, Summer, and Fall internships for graduate and undergraduate interns depending on need.
