Law Student Internships
The FHJC seeks highly motivated law students (1L or 2L) for summer internships to assist the FHJC with federal and state civil rights lawsuits and with cases pending before administrative agencies. Interns work on individual housing discrimination cases by conducting pre-litigation investigations and by researching and analyzing a wide variety of substantive and procedural legal issues. Interns also help with legal research involving systemic discrimination in rental, sales, and mortgage lending on the basis of race, national origin, disability, source of income, sexual orientation, and other protected characteristics under local, state, and federal fair housing laws. The focus of most cases developed with student assistance is on reducing residential segregation and expanding access to publicly assisted and affordable housing thoughout the New York region.
