How To Apply

To apply for a summer legal internship in Eugene, Oregon, please email a cover letter, resume, writing sample (less than 10 pages), and a list of three references (including phone numbers) to:

summerlaw@elaw.org (no calls, please).

Successful applicants generally possess excellent research and writing skills and a strong dedication to public interest environmental law. Proficiency in a language or languages other than English is preferred, but not required. ELAW actively seeks applicants with diverse backgrounds.

The ELAW summer legal internship involves considerable English-language research and writing, plus frequent research of U.S. laws. If you are an applicant from a non-English speaking country, ELAW requires the following proficiency scores to be considered for an internship:

Paper-based TOEFL: 600

Computer-based TOEFL: 245

Internet-based TOEFL: 100

IELTS: 8

At ELAW's discretion, we will work with summer internship applicants who wish to provide alternative proof of English language proficiency. This may include a telephone conversation with a member of ELAW staff to evaluate an individual's level of fluency.

Due to limited resources, we are unable to provide funding for interns. We encourage interested applicants to look for alternate sources of funding, including their law school. Previous legal interns have obtained academic credit through educational institutions for their work at ELAW.
