The Center for HIV Law and Policy (CHLP) provides substantive internships to law students with strong skills in legal analysis and writing. We occasionally provide internships to graduate students in non-legal fields related to our work, or exceptional undergraduates.
Although internships are unpaid, CHLP will support applicants' efforts to secure stipends, fellowships, or course credit. In addition, interns will have the opportunity of creating a flexible work schedule that will allow them to work remotely if preferable. Qualified applicants for both full- and part-time internships will be considered. Internship descriptions are set forth below.
CHLP is currently seeking legal interns.
Intern opportunities include work on the following initiatives:
Intern Requirements: The applicant must be a law student with excellent analytical skills and the ability to engage in thoughtful and thorough research independently. Moreover, the applicant must be a skilled writer with the ability to describe and analyze research findings clearly and concisely, and the ability to identify and consider additional issues these findings raise. Experience or interest in human rights – particularly the rights of young people, women, people of color, and LGBT people – is preferred but not required.

The Center for HIV Law and Policy (CHLP) welcomes the opportunity to partner with a current law student, judicial clerk, or other eligible individual to develop a public interest fellowship such as an Equal Justice Works, Soros Justice, Skadden, or Liman Fellowship. A fellowship with CHLP affords an aspiring and gifted individual the opportunity to join our mission to reduce the impact of HIV on the most marginalized communities, support and increase the advocacy power and HIV expertise of attorneys, community members and service providers, and advance policy initiatives that are grounded in and uphold social justice, science and the public health.
If you are interested in developing a fellowship proposal with CHLP, send a brief statement outlining your proposed project along with a resume, transcript, writing sample, and contact information for three references to email@example.com, with the subject line "Fellowship Proposal." Please indicate the fellowship for which you are seeking sponsorship as well as its application deadline in your email. To learn more about postgraduate fellowships, visit PSJD.org.
