Volunteer Opportunities

EBCLO offers volunteer programs for attorneys and legal interns who wish to participate in our representation of foster youth.  EBCLO regularly employs paralegal students, law school interns and volunteer attorneys.  The application timelines and corresponding employment periods are as follows:

Paralegal, fall or spring law school internships and volunteer attorney programs:  Paralegals, law school interns, and attorneys wishing to volunteer may apply for part-time internships for the spring and fall terms.  For the spring term, please submit a cover letter and resume by the previous November 1; and for the fall, cover letters and resumes should be submitted between May 15 to June 15 each year.

Summer Full Time Legal Internship Program: We accept applications for our full time summer internship program beginning in October of the previous year. Rising 2L and 3L students interested in our summer internship program should submit a cover letter and resume before February 15th.  Students may also apply annually through the PIPS program normally held in February.

Interested applicants should send resume and cover letters to Peggy Stone, Director of Interns and Volunteer Attorneys.

If you are not a law student or an MSW student and are interested in volunteering for EBCLO in some other way, please contact Interim Executive Director, Susan Walsh.
