An international corporate accountability and human rights NGO seeks a first- or second-year law student for a short-term unpaid legal internship to begin immediately.  Working closely with the NGO’s attorneys, the intern will conduct legal research and analysis to support litigation in U.S. federal court regarding environmental and human rights violations committed abroad.  The work will be completed remotely and on the intern’s own schedule as long as agreed-upon deadlines are met.  We estimate an initial commitment of 10-20 hours of work in the next month, with the possibility of additional assignments depending on how the matter proceeds.  Please submit a writing sample and a CV to Chris Benoit at chris@coylefirm.com. Applications accepted on a rolling basis.
