Public Interest Internship Program

The YLD Public Interest Internship Program (PIIP) Committee is pleased to announce that applications for 2017 funding are now available.

Law students and recent law school graduates may apply for limited $5,000 grants to fund unpaid full-time summer internships in public interest law. We hope this will help expand the number of students and young lawyers able to pursue opportunities in public interest law in Georgia. Applicants must have secured an unpaid internship in a law-related nonprofit or government agency in Georgia. Applications are due no later than March 24 at 5 p.m.

Eligible internship placements must be unpaid and for a minimum of 10 weeks of work and 400 hours at a public interest legal organization in Georgia.
