Procopio has a long-standing tradition of providing growth opportunities to the communities we serve. Procopio’s Native American Practice Group extends this tradition by actively investing in the future leaders of Indian Country through offering paid internships for Native American law students or law students with an emphasis in Native American law. Please join us in identifying qualified legal students within Native American communities that may be interested in being part of this engaging opportunity.
The Native American Law Internship provides an opportunity for a Native American law student, or law student emphasizing Native American Law, to gain hands-on experience dealing with everyday legal issues facing Native American communities. Interns are involved in matters that deal with specific Indian law-related legal practice matters and other legal problems facing tribal governments and Native entities. Procopio Interns reach out to local Native American youth to provide guidance and inspiration regarding educational direction and opportunities.
Applications are due Friday, October 30th by 5 p.m. PST.
Applications should include:
- The blog post writing sample (see below)
- Law school transcript
- Cover letter identifying why this is an opportunity you would like to pursue
- Any tribal governmental experience you have and why Native legal issues are significant to you.
