Together we can defeat giants.

Join Our Team

Thank you for your interest in joining the International Rights Advocates team!  We review applications for legal interships/ externships on a rolling basis. We rarely accept undergraduate students as interns; however, we may consider interested undergraduate applicants who can assist in social media outreach and graphic design. We are also launching a Fellowship program for law school graduates.

Although we consider applications on a rolling basis and may consider your application after the dates below, we recommend sending in intern/externship applications by the following dates:

December 15- for Spring externship applications

March 15- for Summer internship applications

July 1- for Fall externship applications

Please see the Legal Intern Posting attached below, and send your application materials to acollingsworth@iradvocates.org if you would like to be considered for an internship position. Please address your cover letters to Mr. Terrence Collingsworth.

Required materials: Resume, Cover Letter explaining your interest and outlining your skillset, law school transcript, writing sample (5-10 pages).

If applying as a 1L before Fall semester grades have been released, please supplement your materials with your transcript and updated resume indicating your GPA and/or class rank.

Fellowships:

We are currently accepting applicants for Fellowship Positions beginning in Fall 2022. Applicants are strongly encouraged to apply for fellowship funding through their schools or independent sources. We will likely be able to provide matching funds if necessary.

Legal Fellows would work on a full-time basis assisting in our litigation efforts.

Please email acollingsworth@iradvocates.org with a cover letter, transcript, resume, writing sample, and list of at least three professional/ law school references. Please address cover letters to Mr. Terrence Collingsworth.
