Catholic Legal Immigration Network, Inc. (CLINIC) Seeking Advocacy Interns

CLINIC is a national network of immigration legal service providers that serve low income communities, and the Advocacy Department seeks to make the collective experience of our affiliates influence immigration policy.  Interns can expect to work in several different modes of advocacy, including tasks involving the administration’s immigration policy, state and local laws affecting immigrants, and the BIA Pro Bono Project.

Interns will assist attorneys with administrative advocacy efforts to remedy problems faced by low-income immigrants and CLINIC member agencies and assist in our efforts to support state advocates working to combat local anti-immigrant measures.  Tasks may include:

  • Reviewing government regulations and policy memos
  • Drafting comments on federal regulations
  • Attending meetings with government agencies, hearings, and other events
  • Assisting affiliate programs with individual case inquiries
  • Researching and analyzing state immigration-related legislation
  • Supporting pro bono attorneys in immigration appeals

Applicants must have strong writing and communication skills and excellent attention to detail.  These internships are ideal for law students considering a career in public policy or advocacy.

If interested, please send a resume and cover letter to Allison Posner, CLINIC’s Director of Advocacy, no later than Friday, February 21, 2014.
