Procopio Now Accepting Applications for 2016 Native American Law Internship

San Diego, CA – Procopio, San Diego’s largest business law firm, is excited to announce that it is now accepting applications for its 2016 Native American Law Internship.  Procopio maintains a long-standing tradition of providing growth opportunities to the communities it serves.  The Native American Practice Group extends this tradition by actively investing in the future leaders of Indian Country through paid internships for Native American law students or law students with an emphasis in Native American law.

Procopio’s Native American Law Interns have joined us from the Navajo Nation, Bishop Paiute Tribe, Iipay Nation of Santa Ysabel, Pala Band of Mission Indians, the Seminole Nation, the Cherokee Nation, the Shinnecock Indian Nation, the Isleta Pueblo and Tohono O’odham Nation.

This unique internship program provides an opportunity for law students to gain experience handling everyday legal issues facing Native American communities.  Interns are involved in matters that deal with specific Indian law-related legal practice matters and other legal problems facing tribal governments and Native entities.  Procopio enhances this educational experience even further with a community outreach component, in which interns provide guidance and inspiration regarding educational direction and opportunities to local Native American youth.

This paid Native American Law Internship program extends 8 to 10 weeks, and applicants should have completed their first year of law school prior to the start of the internship.

Applications are due by Friday, October 30th by 5 p.m. PST. 

Applications should include:

  • A blog post writing sample (for examples, see Blogging Circle)
  • Law school transcript
  • Resume
  • Cover letter identifying why this is an opportunity you would like to pursue, any tribal governmental experience you have and why Native legal issues are significant to you.

The writing sample for the internship program should be a 250-300 word sample blog post on a newsworthy Native legal topic of your choosing written in a way that will appeal to readers.

Applications can be submitted via email to or sent via USPS mail to:
