Legal interns are requested to perform 200 hours of legal research and/or program work regarding a plethora of civil liberties issues. This summer, we are going to be working on the use of RICO, anti-terrorist statutes, and other environmental and animal rights based laws that have been passed in the last few years. We have several federal police misconduct cases ongoing, including challenging the use of tasers. It is likely that we will also be assisting activists arrested during demonstrations throughout the summer. We will also be developing brief bank databases, websites, as well as updating our Patriot Act materials and presentations. Attorney Lauren Regan will primarily supervise this intern position.
We are attempting to secure funding for modest summer stipends. We strongly encourage applicants to secure funding through their schools, the NLG, or other public interest funding sources. We will cooperate in any way possible to assist students in securing fellowships, stipends, or private grants to fund their summer work with the CLDC. We are more than happy to assist clerks in attempting to secure academic or other credit through their schools as well.
