Hi Ms. JD Pre-Law! Do check out this summer internship opportunity with the Asian American Bar Association of New York:
The Asian American Bar Association of New York (AABANY) represents the interests of New York Asian-American attorneys, judges, law professors, legal professionals, legal assistants or paralegals and law students. Its mission is to improve the study and practice of law, and the fair administration of justice for all by ensuring the meaningful participation of Asian-Americans in the legal profession.
AABANY’s Legal Internship Program supports Asian-American students, law clerks and lawyers interested in the legal profession to develop a commitment to advocacy on behalf of the Asian-American community.
Interns would assist in tasks including deveoping academic papers and reserach on Asian-American advancement in the legal community, drafting press releases, drafting articles for the AABANY Advocate (the association's quarterly newsletter) or assisting in the planning, organization, implementation and promotion of conferences and events.
Undergraduate students, law students, law school graduates and lawyers.
Applications will be accepted on a rolling basis. Internships for law students and recent graduates will be for one year. For undergraduates, internships for shorter periods are available, but during the school year, a minimum commitment of three months would be required. Summer internships of at least 10 weeks may be available for law students and undergraduates.
Interns are required to be in New York City or in the Tri-State area within reasonable proximity of New York City.
