The Community Health Law Project is always looking for law students who are interested in a legal internship in one of our offices.  Interns in our Regional Offices will assist staff attorneys in providing legal representation to clients on Social Security, public entitlements, housing, family, and other civil matters.  In our Administration Office (South Orange), interns research and write on civil rights and other disability-related issues.

Every year we also hire a law or graduate student to work as a public policy intern. Public policy interns research and write on matters of public policy that affect our clients, e.g., welfare regulations, proposed changes in the Medicaid program, psychiatric institution lien law reform.

Candidates can call 973-275-1175 for more information.
