The Center for Constitutional Rights is dedicated to advancing and protecting the rights guaranteed by the United States Constitution and the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. Founded in 1966 by attorneys who represented civil rights movements in the South, CCR is a non-profit legal and educational organization committed to the creative use of law as a positive force for social change. Our work began on behalf of civil rights activists, and over the last four decades CCR has lent its expertise and support to virtually every popular movement for social justice.
CCR is an equal opportunity, affirmative action employer and actively recruits people of color, women, persons with disabilities, and persons with diverse gender and sexual identities.
Over the past 24 years, CCR has trained the next generation of "people's lawyers" through its renowned Ella Baker Summer Internship Program. The program is designed for students in their first or second year of law school. During the summer, law students assist CCR attorneys with their case loads while taking part in educational seminars and talks (more about the Ella Baker Program).
CCR also offers limited internships throughout the year in its Legal, Communications, and Development departments to graduate, undergraduate, and high-school students on an as-needed basis, for which school credit may be offered when appropriate. Please check this page regularly as internships will be posted here – at the bottom of this page – first.
