Technology & Civil Liberties Internship (Summer 2022, ACLU of Northern CA)

Location: San Francisco, Sacramento, or Fresno. Deadline: Open until filled.

The ACLU of Northern California’s Legal-Policy Department invites law and graduate students to apply for its  Technology  & Civil Liberties  Internship.  Students  willing to work  with intensity  and focus  will find an internship at ACLU NorCal a rewarding learning experience.  Qualified  applicants  are enthusiastic, creative, and detail-oriented; have  strong  research,  writing,  and  oral  communication skills; and can articulate a commitment to work for social justice and the ideals of the ACLU.

About the Legal-Policy Department

The Legal-Policy Department promotes policy change and pursues cutting  edge impact litigation to defend and expand the civil liberties and civil rights guaranteed by the Bill of Rights. The Department’s work focuses on six broad program areas: Criminal Justice; Democracy & Civic Engagement; Gender, Sexuality & Reproductive Justice; Immigrants’  Rights; Racial & Economic  Justice; and Technology  & Civil Liberties. The Department’s staff is based in San Francisco,  Sacramento,  and Fresno,  although staff is currently carrying out our work remotely due to Covid-19.  Department  staff work closely  with other departments within  ACLU NorCal, including Organizing,  Communications, Development,  Finance & Administration, as well as with ACLU California Action.

Technology & Civil Liberties Internship

The Technology and Civil  Liberties  Intern  will participate  in cutting  edge legal and  policy  work  to safeguard privacy and free speech in the modern digital world. Interns will  conduct  legal  and  factual research and help draft reports, analyses, articles,  and  testimony  to  the  legislature  and  regulatory agencies  and  brief  the ACLU  of  California  and  National  ACLU  staff  on a  variety  of technology  issues. At times, work may arise that gives interns the opportunity to work across the Department’s  six  broad program areas, including in the areas of Democracy  &  Civic  Engagement,  Racial  &  Economic  Justice, and Immigrants’ Rights. Interns will have the opportunity to  participate  in  strategy  meetings  with  other ACLU staff, work with other  interns in the program  cohort,  and  likely  attend  (remotely)  technology meetings and events throughout the region. Interns are encouraged to participate in monthly program meetings, where prospective litigation and policy strategies are discussed.

Applicants must currently be enrolled in law school or a graduate program in Computer Science, Engineering, Information Science, Public Policy, Political Science, Journalism, or a related  field, and must demonstrate a strong interest in the intersection of civil liberties and new technology, particularly privacy and free speech.  The Legal-Policy  Department  accepts  1-2 Technology  & Civil Liberties Interns per term

Application Process

Summer internships are full-time  for 10 -12 weeks  and usually  begin the day after Memorial Day. “Split” summers may be considered where the intern is available for a minimum of 10 weeks. Part-time internships are not available during the summer.

For summer internship funding, students should seek available funding through their schools. For students coming from schools that do not offer summer funding or who do not obtain adequate school funding, ACLU NorCal will consider providing funding to students, as available.
