2019 Martin Luther King, Jr. Summer Internship Program

Pennsylvania Legal Aid Network, Inc. is currently accepting applications for its 2019 Martin Luther King Jr. (MLK) Summer Internship Program. Each summer, the Pennsylvania Legal Aid Network awards 10 paid internships to current law students to participate in legal services work over the traditional 10-week summer internship period.

The internships are available at Pennsylvania Legal Aid Network programs across the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania for law students who are social justice oriented and desire an opportunity to make a difference.

Students engage in real-world situations which provide an understanding of the special legal issues facing individuals who live in poverty, while providing valuable and necessary service to the Pennsylvania Legal Aid Network program offices in which they are placed.

MLK Interns experience direct client contact, participate in court hearings (for those certified) and administrative hearings, and conduct legal research and writing on actual cases under the supervision of seasoned legal aid attorneys.

Interns are challenged to put classroom training and talent to work on behalf of the many needy individuals the Pennsylvania Legal Aid Network serves, and to work creatively to reduce the barriers to a more just society. 

A current law student (1L or 2L) may indicate their interest in serving as a MLK summer intern by sending a letter (expressing interest and preferences); a resume; a transcript (official or unofficial); and three (3) references to:
