Legal Intern

The Organization

The National Institute for Reproductive Health works across the country to increase access to reproductive health care by changing public policy, galvanizing public support, and normalizing women’s decisions to have abortions and use contraception. Believing that a bottom-up strategy is necessary to create lasting change, we work through a partnership model, providing support in the form of funding, capacity building, strategic guidance, and technical assistance and building connections between and among partner organizations at the local, state, and national levels.

The Position

The law clerk/legal intern should expect to engage in policy analysis of key pieces of state legislation across the country; perform legal research and draft legal memoranda to advance our policy priorities; and gain experience working in state and national coalitions working to advance reproductive rights.

Primary Responsibilities:

  • Policy analysis of bills affecting reproductive rights on the state level;
  • Legislative tracking of related bills in key states;
  • Legal research and writing.

Qualifications:

  • Second- or third-year law student;
  • A commitment to and knowledge of reproductive health and rights is preferred but not required;
  • Excellent legal research and writing skills;
  • Knowledge of and/or interest in the legislative process
  • Excellent organizational and interpersonal skills, including exceptional attention to detail; and
  • Ability to work independently and as part of a team.
