ABA JOHN J. CURTIN, JR. JUSTICE FUND 2015 SUMMER LEGAL INTERNSHIP PROGRAM
The Curtin Justice Fund Legal Internship Program is
seeking motivated law student interns to apply for stipends available
for the Summer 2015 Program. These students should have a position
offered, contingent on funding, from a qualified organization.
Curtin Justice Fund Legal Internship Program is managed jointly by the
ABA Commission on Homelessness and Poverty and the Standing Committee on
Legal Aid and Indigent Defendants. The Program will pay a $2,500
stipend to three law school students who spend the summer months working
for a bar association or legal services program designed to prevent
homelessness or assist homeless or indigent clients or their advocates.
The Legal Internship Program will provide much-needed legal assistance
to organizations serving the under-represented and give students direct
experience in a public interest forum. Through this, it aims both to
help homeless clients and to encourage careers in the law that further
the goals of social justice.
The application deadline for Summer 2015 is Monday, March 30, 2015.
