Internship for 2nd- & 3rd-Year Law Students in Fall 2023

Adler & Colvin will offer a student internship this Fall 2023. The internship is open to 2nd- or 3rd-year law students, concurrently enrolled at an ABA or California-accredited law school, from diverse backgrounds and/or who have demonstrated a commitment to promoting justice, diversity, equity, and inclusion in legal practice.

Our attorneys work daily to help nonprofits maximize their impact. In our collaborative practice, we advise our clients on nonprofit corporate structures and governance, social enterprise, lobbying and political advocacy, international philanthropy, and much more. Although our area of practice is specific, the work we do is diverse, complex, and challenging. Our clients represent a wide spectrum of size, stage, and purpose, from small, newly launched grassroots advocacy organizations to large, established philanthropies. Our clients are committed to making a better and more equitable world, and they inspire us every day.

Interns will join us in this work by shadowing each of our most experienced attorneys over the course of the internship, getting a close, first-hand look at our unique and rewarding specialty practice. Interns will also have the opportunity to work on special projects, which may include research, development of legal resources for internal and external audiences, drafting blog posts or articles, etc. They will learn the fundamentals of the laws applicable to tax-exempt nonprofit organizations; participate in attorney-client meetings; and have direct access to some of the top practitioners in the field. Their efforts will support the firm’s service to the nonprofit sector in creative and innovative ways.

Interns will work at least 10-15 hours a week for 10 weeks during the Fall 2023 academic semester and will be paid $50/hour. Scheduling will be flexible to accommodate academic obligations. Interns will be asked to work in our downtown San Francisco office at least two days per week for the duration of the internship. We will gladly provide support and requested documentation to students who are eligible to receive academic credit for the internship.
