At this time, Casa Cornelia Law Center has suspended its in-person internship program due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and regrets it is not currently accepting internship applications from undergraduate students.
Casa Cornelia Law Center offers students a diverse and exciting opportunity to volunteer as Legal Administrative Assistants or as General Law Clerks. We invite you to apply and be part of our efforts to provide quality pro bono representation to those in need.
Candidates are selected according to the needs of the law firm, as well as the interests and skillsets of the interns. We accept students for the following sessions/semesters:
- Fall – August through December
- Spring – January through May
- Summer – June through August
Students volunteering must commit a minimum of 12 hours per week to Casa Cornelia. All students participate in a required orientation workshop prior to the beginning of each internship session. They are offered opportunities to participate in professional trainings and webinars, and may have the opportunity to accompany a legal team member to court hearings.
Although our internships are unpaid, many schools offer work study, unit credit, or grants. Law students are also encouraged to explore funding opportunities for their participation in Casa Cornelia’s volunteer program through their school’s community service or pro bono program.
