DMRS’ Legal internships are a great way for students and recent graduates to learn more about immigration issues and gain valuable experience in their area of interest. The time commitment required for interns is flexible and depends on the needs of the intern, DMRS, and the interns’ college, university, or other program. All internships are unpaid unless otherwise specified. However, should you be eligible for external funding from your university or other source, DMRS will be happy to support your application and provide any assistance needed to secure funding.
Every year several law students spend their summer at DMRS gaining hands on experience in immigration law. Legal interns must have completed at least one year of law school to participate in this program. *Every year, DMRS typically receives funding to support one paid legal intern for the summer in our Removal Defense Program. Please check this page in February/March for information regarding this opportunity and how to apply.
*Pre-law and paralegal students are welcome to serve throughout the school year as volunteers. Tasks may include legal research, writing, and administrative tasks.
