Internship Opportunities

UPLC is looking for interns for the summer of 2023! Submit your application now at

We envision our interns working 15 hours a week with flexibility for fully remote, in person, or hybrid work. Some projects may require time in the office. This is an unpaid internship, but UPLC will work with applicants to receive funding from their institutions if applicable.

Interns would help out with a variety of tasks including, but not limited to:

  •  Legal pre-screening calls for tenants rights, Social Security, and prisoners' rights issues
  •  Developing and vetting a reliable referrals network for housing case management, healthcare, and legal assistance
  •  Conducting data entry and crafting responses to letters from prisoners requesting assistance
  •  Scheduling, and taking notes during, legal calls with people in prison
  •  Assisting our communications team as needed

Our office is located in Uptown. Please email with further questions.
