Trustees for Alaska is offering environmental law internships to interested law students who have a demonstrated commitment to the public interest and the environment. Second and third-year law students with coursework in administrative and environmental law are preferred. Trustees for Alaska provides a full spectrum of public interest law experience to its interns, including research, writing, client contact, drafting legal documents, and public speaking on administrative law matters, depending on client and case needs. Commitment extends over ten weeks; start and end dates are negotiable. Internships are paid a modest hourly wage, but education makes up for low pay. Interns find their own housing, but Trustees for Alaska staff will provide leads on possible living arrangements.
Trustees for Alaska is a non-profit, public interest environmental law firm that has been providing legal services in Alaska for almost 35 years. Trustees for Alaska provides counsel to local, regional and national conservation organizations, Alaska Native villages and tribal councils, fishing organizations, and others in environmental and natural resource matters. Our work generally focuses on state and federal laws concerning oil and gas leasing, exploration and development, clean air and water, mining, marine and terrestrial conservation, energy, land use, public lands, forestry, and transportation.
If you are interested in an internship with Trustees for Alaska, please postmark your application no later than December 15, 2008, though earlier is better as we review applications as they arrive. Electronic applications are encouraged and may be sent to email@example.com. Please include a cover letter, resume, transcript, short writing sample, and reference list to Tamar Shai, Paralegal. Our snail mail address is: Trustees for Alaska, 1026 W. 4th Avenue, #201, Anchorage, AK 99501.

How comfortable are you with regular client contact? More importantly, how comfortable are you with having regular contact with low-income clients? Most public interest law clients have incomes at or below the Federal Poverty Level. For 2007 that meant a single mother with two children had a total monthly income of $1430.

Look for a job where you will be regularly conducting research and writing memos on public policy issues. Otherwise you may find yourself miserable in a job where you must regularly meet with indigent clients and maintain an active litigation caseload.
What area of public interest law is your passion? It could be representing petitioners, usually women in domestic violence injunctions; representing tenants in eviction cases; representing migrant farm-workers in labor disputes; preparing advance directives for seniors; or helping the homeless or people who have a mental illness get public benefits, such as food stamps, Medicaid, Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF), or Social Security disability benefits.
Are you willing to branch out into different areas of law? Frequently your public interest law client will have a problem with multiple layers. Consider the single mom who ... to continue reading click HERE.
