As countries around the world continue to grapple with inadequate prison conditions, law students in the U.S. have become fierce advocates for incarcerated individuals. Fighting systemic injustices, these students have fought to improve living conditions, provide medical treatment, and reduce practices such as solitary confinement in prisons, among many other issues facing some of the nation’s most vulnerable citizens. If you are interested in working with an organization to defend prisoner civil rights, there are many opportunities for the coming 2023 summer.
UCLA School of Law recently compiled a list of summer opportunities for current law students, both paid and unpaid. With positions available across the country, opportunities abound wherever you will be spending the summer. Make sure you apply early as these roles are sure to be filled quickly, and schedule an appointment with a CSO advisor to review your application materials!
