2021 Ella Baker Summer Internship for 2Ls

Deadline: October 19, 2020

The Center for Constitutional Rights created the Ella Baker Summer Internship Program in 1987 to honor the legacy of Ella Baker, a hero of the civil rights movement, and to train the next generation of social justice lawyers.

The Center for Constitutional Rights created the Ella Baker Summer Internship Program in 1987 to honor the legacy of Ella Baker, a hero of the civil rights movement, and to train the next generation of social justice lawyers. Through our program, interns gain practical litigation experience and sharpen their theoretical understanding of the relationship between social change, organizing and lawyering. Ella Baker Interns also become connected to a global community of social justice law students and lawyers through our Ella Baker Alumni Network.

Most summers all Ella Baker interns work at the Center’s office in NYC. The internship was remote during the summer of 2020 and Center staff continue to work from home at the current time. Due to the COVID19 pandemic we do not yet know whether the summer of 2021 will be remote or in-person, that decision will be made by Center for Constitutional Rights management based on what is safe for staff, interns and the larger community. That said, we certainly hope to be in-person again for 2021. Regardless, interns will work under the direct supervision of Center attorneys and advocacy program managers on our cases and projects. Interns also participate in trainings on litigation skills, movement lawyering, and other relevant topics. Interns’ responsibilities may include: legal research & writing for domestic and international litigation, factual investigation, client & witness interviews, policy/legislative research, and participation in client and community meetings. In addition, interns are provided opportunities to attend court proceedings, community and client meetings, and law related panels and events.

In the past, interns have worked on cases involving solitary confinement, discriminatory policing practices, social and economic rights, immigrants’ rights, U.S. detention and targeted killing practices, universal jurisdiction over international human rights abuses, gender and LGBTI justice domestically and internationally. Interns also have the opportunity to work on various advocacy campaigns. Interns at the Center for Constitutional Rights experience the unique opportunities and challenges of doing social justice lawyering at a national organization.

The internship will begin on Tuesday, June 8, 2021 and end on August 13, 2021. Interns are expected to work 40 hours per week.

Work the Polls in November for Pro Bono Hours

Students can gain pro bono hours by volunteering as poll workers for November’s election.

Pennsylvania needs you in November! Because of the shortage of poll workers in the June primary and the resulting voter suppression, the Kline School of Law is partnering with the Voter Project to offer pro bono credit hours for students who volunteer as poll workers in November’s election.

Students who wish to receive pro bono credit for their work as poll workers must:

  • Sign up to be a poll worker!
  • File their project registration form with Rashida West as soon as possible.
  • Track their hours using the student timesheet.
  • Donate their compensation to the Public Interest Experience Auction (details on this requirement are forthcoming). Because of school policies, all compensation received from poll working and related trainings must be donated to the Public Interest Experience Auction in order to receive pro bono credit. Students who do not wish to donate are still encouraged to volunteer as poll workers but cannot receive pro bono hours.

All students who are selected by their counties to be poll workers will receive training from experts at the Voter Project as well as their county. Poll workers will also be provided with personal protective equipment (PPE) for the duration of their time.

If we want to deliver justice for everyone who calls Pennsylvania home, we must come together and make this year’s general election a success. Sign up here to learn more about becoming a poll worker and to ensure that every single vote counts.
