If you’re in law school or working on your undergraduate degree and are interested in immigration law, we can provide a meaningful learning experience for you. We have work-study contracts with many schools in the Bay Area and work with your school to offer credit.
We require a minimum commitment of one semester, at 15 hours a week. Interns will perform a variety of tasks, including researching emerging issues, writing briefs, and working directly with clients on cases.
Internships are typically on a rotating schedule beginning August for fall semester, January for Spring semester, and May for Summer.
If you are interested in an internship position, please email a brief cover letter explaining your interest and your current resume to firstname.lastname@example.org.
pro bono opportunities
SJC provides a range of ways for pro bono attorneys to get involved in immigration work. From big firms to solo practitioners and in-house counsel, SJC encourages pro bono attorneys and other legal staff to volunteer their time and compassion to help SJC achieve its mission.
SJC offers free trainings for CLE credit for pro bono attorneys. We partner with the Alameda County Bar Association to provide malpractice insurance for cases taken through SJC’s pro bono program, so you’ll be covered. We also partner you with an SJC expert to help mentor you through the process.
If you or your firm is interested in getting involved by taking on a full-scope case, volunteering for a workshop or clinic, or handling an appeal, please fill out the application form below.
