/ Press Release
Put your legal education and passion for public service to work this summer while gaining experience in immigration law.
Are you interested in making a difference in immigrant communities, but aren’t sure where to start? Apply for the Equal Justice Works Immigration Summer Legal Corps (ISLC), our newest law student program, and gain exposure to the immigration field through hands-on experience.
ISLC, an eight-to ten-week summer internship program, places law students at legal services organizations to respond to the critical needs of underserved and low-income immigrant communities. ISLC is open to first- and second-year law students and provides a $5,000 stipend for completing 300 hours of service in the program.
Through ISLC, students have the opportunity to learn valuable skills outside of the classroom, such as providing direct legal services, engaging in community outreach and education, and building capacity at the organizations where they serve. Additionally, law students receive training in immigration law prior to the start of the program.
Applications for the program are due at 11:59 p.m. EST on February 18, 2020. For more information about ISLC eligibility and requirements and to apply, please visit here.
