Current Opportunities as of September 18, 2017

Spring 2018 Internships

The Fair Elections Legal Network (FELN) is seeking current law students with strong academic credentials and a demonstrated commitment to civil rights.  Primary responsibility will be to support the work of the legal staff to identify and respond to legal and administrative obstacles to voter participation and election administration. Duties will include performing legal research for legislation, reports, and litigation; investigating relevant legal, rulemaking or legislative proceedings for legal violations; and interacting with election reform organizations and key elections officials to advocate for changes that will protect the right to vote.  Additional responsibilities may include assisting with outreach and organizing for our Campus Vote Project.

This is a great opportunity for exposure to election law and voting rights litigation for someone who is a self-starter and comfortable handling significant responsibility. Must possess strong research, analytical, and written and oral communication skills. Ability to meet deadlines is required.

Flexible start/end dates and weekly time commitment.  FELN is an Equal Opportunity Employer (EOE). Applicants from diverse backgrounds are strongly encouraged to apply.
