externship

working with Hawai`i Appleseed Center during the academic year

Hawai`i Appleseed Center will host law students in their second or third year of law school, graduate students and some undergraduate students as an extern/intern earning academic credit. Under the direct supervision of one of our attorneys, students will conduct research on issues affecting the low income population of Hawai`i, help prepare potential litigation as well as participate in pending cases. Assignments may include drafting policy briefs, legal manuals, litigation memos and pleadings. Students may also be assigned projects that involve discovery and trial preparation.

Interested law students, graduate students and undergraduate students should contact Hawai`i Appleseed Center to express interest in working with us for a time frame adequate for projects to be developed and required paperwork from academic institutions completed.

Candidates should send an email to lej@hiappleseed.org expressing your interest in a volunteer position. Please include in your email a current resume and letter of interest.
