Public Interest Law Initiative

Apply for a 2018 Summer Law Student Internship

The application system for summer 2018 Internships is now open for 2Ls. Applications will open for 1Ls beginning December 1st.

PILI summer Internships are open to law students from any ABA accredited law school in the United States. There are 28 agencies approved to host PILI Interns, and you can apply to up to 10 of them. Learn more about our Participating Agencies »

To apply for a PILI Law Student Internship, follow these steps:

  • Prepare your resume and cover letter(s), with a separate cover letter for each agency to which you wish to apply.
  • Save each document separately as pdf files. Be sure your name is in the file name for each document.
  • Complete the form below. You will need to submit a separate application for each agency. Tip: if you enable autofill on your browser, the form should populate automatically after your first application.
  • You will receive a confirmation e-mail each time you successfully submit an application to an agency. Keep track of these confirmation e-mails so you know which agencies you have applied to and how many of your 10 total applications you have left.

Please note: All application submissions are final, and will be sent immediately to the agency to which you are applying. You cannot make changes to your application after it has been submitted. Agencies make their own hiring decisions, and they will get in touch with you directly if they wish to pursue your application further.

Questions? If you have questions about the application system, don’t reach out to the hiring agency directly. Please contact Program Manager Brent Page by email or by phone at 312-832-5128. You can also visit our “How to Apply for PILI Internships” page for general information.
