$4,000 stipend (more details in description)
40 hours/week

The Death Penalty Information Center (DPIC) is looking for full-time law students for summer 2021 internships. The internship will likely be remote, but there may be an in-person possibility depending on the status of the coronavirus pandemic. Law students will conduct legal research about the death penalty. The work will include research about prosecutorial misconduct, governmental transparency, the consideration of mitigation evidence, and racial bias in capital sentencing. 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 and be comfortable with a small office environment. We are willing to work with you to obtain law school credit. The law internships are full-time positions, and students will receive a $4,000 stipend to offset living, moving, and other expenses for the summer unless they are receiving school funding. If you are receiving less than $4,000 in school funding, we will work with you to provide a stipend to bring you to $4,000. If you have questions, please contact Chloe Madvig at cmadvig@deathpenaltyinfo.org.

Applications are due by Sunday, January 24. 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 Chloe Madvig at cmadvig@deathpenaltyinfo.org.


Other Considerations:

  • The internship will begin in May and end in August; exact dates will be determined closer to the start date.
  • Applicants from historically disadvantaged groups, including women, people of color, and LGBTQ+ individuals, are encouraged to apply.
  • Internship is only available to current law students who will have completed at least one year of law school by summer 2021.
