Procopio Announces Opening for a Native American Law Intern, Summer 2012
San Diego, CA – Procopio has a long standing tradition of providing growth opportunities to the community it serves. With our Native American Law Internship Program, we extend this tradition specifically to the Native American Community interested in entering the legal field.
The Native American Law Internship provides an opportunity for a Native American Law Student, or Law Student emphasizing Native American Law, the opportunity to gain hands-on experience dealing with everyday legal issues facing the Native American Community. The intern will be exposed to matters that deal with specific Indian law related legal practice matters and other legal problems, which do not raise inter-tribal or intra-tribal issues. The intern will assist in legal research on various Native American matters for Tribal Clients and pro bono matters affecting Indian country, while gaining experience working in a law firm. Projects may include the development of programs for Tribes that they can use in their governmental operations, including Tribal Histories, Program Audits and development, employment manual audits, strategies for cultural resource protection and legislative and rulemaking review and analysis. There will be a single annual internship position, which will typically last 8 to 10 weeks during the summer months (timing is flexible). Internships are paid a stipend of $700 per week.
Applications should include a short cover letter expressing applicant’s interest in Native American Law, along with a brief resume and Law School transcript. Applications are accepted through March 31st of each year, and are submitted to the Firm attention Ted Griswold (firstname.lastname@example.org). The internship is scheduled to begin after June 15, 2012.
