Overview

*As of November 2019, the following offices are accepting applications for 1L candidates: San Francisco, Santa Monica, and Washington, D.C.

 

Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC) is a national nonprofit public health and environmental advocacy organization. We use law, science, and the support of 3.1 million members and online activists to protect the planet's wildlife and wild places and ensure a safe and healthy environment for all people and living things. NRDC was founded in 1970 and our staff helped write some of America's bedrock environmental laws, including the Clean Air Act, and many of those laws implementing regulations; our water enforcement cases have also played a major role shaping current water policy throughout the country. Today, our staff of more than 700 lawyers, scientists, economists, policy and communications experts, and others work out of offices in New York, Washington, DC, Chicago, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Montana, and Beijing.

 

RECENT NRDC VICTORIES

  • Successfully challenging numerous rollbacks of environmental protections by the Trump administration
  • Advancing clean energy and climate change projects in India
  • Safeguarding the people of Flint, Michigan, from continued exposure to lead in drinking water
  • Successfully defending the protection of 128 million acres of ocean in the Arctic from oil and gas leasing

Responsibilities

NRDCs summer legal interns may participate in writing briefs, drafting complaints, preparing legal analyses, obtaining affidavits, investigating violations of environmental and health laws, developing policy advocacy campaigns, and drafting white papers and comments for submission to Congressional committees and administrative agencies. Our interns play an active role on the frontlines to protect our planet and the communities that depend upon it.

 

NRDC encourages successful applicants to secure funding from scholarships or their law schools, but such funding is not a factor in selecting interns. NRDC will supplement outside funding to ensure interns receive at least $10,000 for the 10-week internship.*

We also know that celebrating and actively welcoming diverse perspectives that come from a diversity of identities will help us innovate to solve the planet's most pressing environmental crises. We are committed to fostering an inclusive workplace where the most underrepresented voices are amplified, promoting equity in our practices, policies, and the work we take on, and valuing diversity in our workplace and our constituency.
