Below are current job and internship postings for the Asylum Seeker Advocacy Project (ASAP).
Fall 2019 Legal Internships
(Note: ASAP is no longer seeking summer legal interns.)
The Asylum Seeker Advocacy Project (ASAP) at the Urban Justice Center is currently accepting applications for Fall 2019 legal internships. Legal interns may assist in various aspects of client representation, including emergency legal assistance to asylum seekers at a distance and filings at immigration courts, the Board of Immigration Appeals, and Courts of Appeal. In addition, interns may prepare public education materials and support ASAP’s private online community, which provides thousands of refugee families with legal information and emergency support.
Legal interns must be currently enrolled in law school and pursuing a U.S. law degree. Please note that a high degree of Spanish proficiency is a plus.
Applicants available to work in New York, Chicago, and Washington, D.C. are preferred, but interested candidates based elsewhere are also encouraged to apply! While internships are unpaid, ASAP is happy to support interns in their efforts to receive school credit and/or outside funding.
How to Apply
Interested applicants should send a cover letter, resume, and a writing sample to: firstname.lastname@example.org. Please use the subject lines “Fall 2019 Legal Internship Application”.
Applications will be considered on a rolling basis.
