NCAI Summer 2018 Legal Internship – Domestic Violence
NCAI is hiring a summer intern to assist us in our work concerning domestic violence in Indian Country. Students must have completed at least one year of law school by the start of the internship. Intern applicants must be able to serve a minimum of 16 hours per week, for a minimum of six weeks. The internship is based in our Washington, DC office. Internships are unpaid, but many schools will offer college credit or financial assistance, and some tribes may be willing to sponsor NCAI interns from their tribe. NCAI will be glad to provide information to your school or tribe to assist in securing credit or financial support for your internship.
The intern will work directly with a team of NCAI staff to plan and coordinate NCAI’s outreach and advocacy work concerning Domestic Violence, specifically NCAI’s projects on VAWA 2013 expanded criminal jurisdiction and on mapping domestic violence resources throughout Indian Country. Responsibilities include legal research, drafting legal memos, helping organize the summer 2018 meeting of the Inter-Tribal Working Group, helping assess gaps in domestic violence services, and organizing webinars on legal topics.
Applications will be accepted on a rolling basis until a candidate is selected. Applicants are encouraged to apply as soon as possible.
Interested applicants should apply by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org a resume, law school grade sheet, writing sample, and cover letter that includes a brief explanation of your interest in the position, tribal affiliation (if any), and two references.
