Fair Elections Center is seeking current law students with strong academic credentials and a demonstrated commitment to civil rights for an internship next summer. Primary responsibility will be to support the work of the legal counsel to identify and respond to legal and administrative obstacles to voter participation, as well as election administration. Duties will include performing legal research for litigation, legislative advocacy, and reports; investigating relevant legal, rule-making or legislative proceedings for legal violations; and interacting with election reform organizations and key elections officials to advocate for changes that will protect the right to vote. Additional responsibilities may include assisting with legal research, outreach, and organizing for our Campus Vote Project.
This is a great opportunity for exposure to election law and voting rights litigation for someone who is a self-starter and comfortable handling significant responsibility. Must possess strong research, analytical, and written and oral communication skills. The ability to meet deadlines is required.
