Fall 2024 Legal Intern

  • Intern
  • Start Date: 8/26/2024

The Death Penalty Information Center (DPIC) is seek­ing a law stu­dent for fall 2024 intern­ships. Applications are due ASAP but no lat­er than June 4, 2024. 

The intern­ship will be hybrid, with both remote and in-per­son pos­si­bil­i­ties for local stu­dents. While we would pre­fer a hybrid work sched­ule, we are open to ful­ly remote interns. Law stu­dents will con­duct legal research about the death penal­ty. The research top­ics may include dif­fer­ences between state cap­i­tal pun­ish­ment sys­tems, pros­e­cu­to­r­i­al mis­con­duct, gov­ern­men­tal trans­paren­cy, the con­sid­er­a­tion of mit­i­ga­tion evi­dence, and racial bias in the admin­is­tra­tion of the death penal­ty. With super­vi­sion by DPIC staff, the legal interns will be guid­ed in per­form­ing legal research, writ­ing mem­os on select­ed top­ics, mon­i­tor­ing lit­i­ga­tion devel­op­ments, and con­duct­ing cross-juris­dic­tion­al analy­ses.  

Applicants should have an inter­est in the Center’s work of serv­ing the media and the pub­lic with analy­sis and infor­ma­tion on issues con­cern­ing cap­i­tal pun­ish­ment. The law intern­ships are part-time, unpaid posi­tions, but we are will­ing to work with your uni­ver­si­ty for intern­ship cred­it. If you have any ques­tions regard­ing the intern­ship, please email Hayley Bedard, DPIC’s Administrative Assistant, at hbedard@​deathpenaltyinfo.​org.

Applications are due by June 4, 2024. To apply, please send a cov­er let­ter not­ing your expe­ri­ence and/​or inter­est in cap­i­tal pun­ish­ment, resume, and legal writ­ing sam­ple in a sin­gle PDF to internships@​deathpenaltyinfo.​org. Please address your cov­er let­ter to Robin Maher, DPIC’s Executive Director.
