The Access to Justice Commission has several opportunities for both law students and undergraduates with an interest in the law or social justice to help close the justice gap in Arkansas. Internships are available both during the summer and the semester.
One to two summer internships are available each year for either law students or undergraduates. The projects summer interns work on vary based on individual interests and the Commission’s current needs, but may include assisting with data entry, developing educational materials, and assisting in conducting research. Our scheduling options are flexible and we can structure an internship for half or all of the summer. Summer internships are unpaid. Those interested should complete the form below.
Application Deadline: May 1st.
Fall and Spring Internships
The Commission hosts one law student as a Fendler Fellow each fall and spring semester. This fellowship is administered in conjunction with the William H. Bowen School of Law. Those interested in the Fendler Fellowship can learn more and apply here. This fellowship comes with a stipend.
Other Fall and Spring Internships
An additional fall or spring internship may be added for either a law student or undergraduate based on applicant interest and the Commission’s needs. Fall or spring Internships, other than the Fendler Fellowship, are unpaid.
Fall semester-August 1st.
Spring Semester-December 1st.
Other Volunteer Opportunities
We recognize that not all students will be able to intern with us, but may still be interested in volunteering. We periodically have legal clinics at which students can assist volunteer attorneys. To find our next clinic, check out our calendar.
