What better way to get involved with CCR than working here? Openings for fellowships, our Ella Baker Internship Program, other unpaid internships and staff positions are listed here. CCR is an equal opportunity, affirmative action employer and actively recruits people of color, women, people with disabilities, and LGBTQ people.
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 offers internships throughout the year in its Legal, Communications, and Development departments to law school, graduate, undergraduate, and high school students on an as-needed basis, for which school credit may be offered when appropriate. Generally, term-time internship opportunities will be posted, with application instructions, in the middle of the preceding semester. Please check this page regularly as internships will be posted here – at the bottom of this page – first.
