The Commission on Homelessness and Poverty welcomes one law student intern per semester. Remote internships are welcome. Unfortunately, the Commission is unable to provide monetary compensation for internships, but can provide school credit.
As an intern, you would work with staff and members to educate the bar and the public about homelessness and poverty and the ways in which the legal community and advocates can assist those in need through court-based diversion, legal services, and interdisciplinary efforts. Interns may assist with a variety of tasks, including drafting memos, articles, and other materials, as well as researching national, state, and local laws, policies, and developments related to housing, public benefits, homeless courts, etc. Your work could support the Commission's Homeless Court Program, Homeless Youth Legal Network, and Anti-Poverty Initiative, among other related projects and programs. Through the Commission, you would work with nationally recognied leaders and advocates to identify and promote best practices and model programs.
