Term Time Internships

The Bernard Koteen Office of Public Interest Advising at Harvard Law School seeks undergraduate interns to assist the office in various capacities.

Our office, staffed by experienced attorneys, counsels hundreds of law students and alumni/ae interested in pursuing public service work. The intern position offers great exposure to the legal profession, particularly for someone contemplating a career in public interest law. Interns have the opportunity to meet experienced attorneys, attend panels and job fairs, and work with engaging students and staff.

Project assignments include the following:

  • Enter and organize public interest fellowships and job openings.
  • Assist with publicity and set up for OPIA events.
  • Perform general office duties, such as fielding phone calls from students, employers, and alumni/ae; photocopying; data entry; and project and publication support.

Excellent organizational and writing skills are required, along with the ability to self-start on innovative projects. Enthusiasm, sense of humor, and interest in public service work are a must! Familiarity with Microsoft Office and PC platforms is extremely important; knowledge of databases and HTML is a plus. This position pays $10/hour. Interns are expected to work approximately 10 hours/week. Sophomores and juniors are especially encouraged to apply.

Please send a cover letter and resume to Micah Nemiroff at mnemiroff@law.harvard.edu. Positions for the school year are typically filled by the preceding spring semester.
