Over ten weeks, our interns will see first-hand the unique opportunities and challenges of implementing a movement lawyering approach. Interns will receive structured training to develop and deepen their understanding of movement lawyering through a curriculum of bi-weekly readings, seminars, relationship building, and reflections.

Along with our partner organizations, we host an opening retreat and facilitate cross-organizational exchanges so interns can learn about, and engage with other organizational approaches to movement lawyering.

At Amistad Law Project, we combine law, organizing, and policy advocacy to build the power of our movement. Our legal interns will:

  • learn and collaborate with like-minded law students from around the country
  • strengthen legal research, writing, and advocacy skills
  • work alongside communities directly impacted by the prison industrial complex
  • imagine and learn to develop narratives for Black radical abolitionist futures
