Jobs

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.

Internships

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 February 1 and March 15 each year. We typically seek law students, but often have capacity for one or two undergraduate interns depending on our program needs at any given time. All internships are unpaid (unless you apply for and secure independent funding – e.g., from your school). 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 Pro Bono Counsel Kurt M. Denk (kdenk@nycbar.org).
