PCL/PCLF internships are a great way to become familiar with environmental policy in California and network with environmental non-profit organizations, government representatives, and other stakeholders. Possible work assignments include policy research, report writing, event planning, and outreach to community groups. Interns work on a core project and often provide support to PCL/PCLF staff on other assignments. Interns have opportunities to do work in the Capitol, such as attending hearings and meetings on assigned bills. This is a friendly, flexible, and fast-paced office, and our interns provide key support to our environmental mission.
We are looking for law students or graduate students in related fields for these positions; however, outstanding undergraduate interns will also be considered. All candidates should possess excellent research and communication skills, and be well suited to work in a fast-paced environment. These are unpaid internships, but PCL/PCLF will assist in attempting to secure funding for the position.
