Internships and Law Fellowships
The National Center offers students unpaid and work/study educational internship opportunities to assist us in fulfilling our mission. We also have begun a Law Fellowship Program that provides recent law school graduates interested in collective bargaining issues and a career in labor and employment law with an opportunity to research contemporary issues for up to a year on a volunteer basis, without a longer-term commitment.
If you are interested in an internship or our Law Fellowship Program, please submit a cover letter and resume to: firstname.lastname@example.org. All other inquiries regarding internship opportunities at the National Center should be directed to our Administrator Michelle Savarese (212) 481-7550.
