Job and Internship Opportunities

You may have noticed from all of the information on our website that SCELP does some pretty wonderful work. But, did you know that SCELP is also a wonderful place to work? Located in downtown Georgetown, our dog-friendly office is in a beautiful historic house that is a short walk to waterfront shops and restaurants, and a short drive to the beach. We offer law students and recent graduates the opportunity to gain meaningful experience in environmental litigation.

Legal Internships, Externships, and Fellowhsips

SCELP hires up to two unpaid law student summer interns each year, on a rolling basis. Usually application review begins after fall semester grades are in (January/February). We work with students to receive grant funding and/or class credit, when available. SCELP gives preference in the hiring process to 2Ls, but all applicants are considered.

To apply, submit here a cover letter, resume, writing sample, and transcript.

Summer internship positions have been filled for the summer of 2016.

SCELP also offers externships and fellowships for those law students and recent graduates who are able to secure class credit or funding. While SCELP has no formal deadlines for these opportunities, often funding from a law school, equal justice works, or other program is limited. Law students interested in applying for a fellowship or externship with SCELP should contact us as early as possible to coordinate efforts.
