City Bar Justice Center projects operate across a diverse range of legal issues. Each project is run by an experienced legal expert, coordinated by a dedicated staff member, and delivered through pro bono volunteer lawyers and community outreach. In addition, CBJC operates the largest free civil Legal Hotline in NYC, providing assistance to over 1,000 people per month.
The City Bar Justice Center considers applications for academic year internships on an ad hoc basis and accepts applications for our summer internship program between December and March each year. We typically seek law students, but often have capacity for one or two undergraduate interns depending on our program needs at the time. All internships are unpaid (unless you secure independent funding – e.g., from your school). Please see current open opportunities listed below or if you are interested in applying for any future openings, please send a cover letter as well as your resume, transcript, and a brief writing sample to cbjc–firstname.lastname@example.org.
