The Charter Cities Institute is offering a 10-week, full-time summer legal internship. Work will primarily consist of research and drafting model statutes and regulations for future charter cities. Legal research interns will be engaged in multiple projects dedicated to the development of this model legal code that draws inspiration from model legislation developed by organizations such as the Uniform Law Commission and the United Nations, with this work likely focusing on administrative and regulatory law. This role is designed for individuals who have an interest in a broad range of legal topics including economics, governance, public policy, and international development. Other duties may be assigned as needed. Interns will also have the privilege of working with our in-house team of researchers and receiving mentorship and academic guidance. Candidates are ideally rising 2L or 3L JD students having just completed their first or second year of law school, but LLM students are welcome to apply as well. Interns will be provided a $2,500 stipend. This internship will be remote because of COVID-19. The time requirements are 40 hours of work per week for 10 weeks, which will run from May or June until August or September, depending on the availability of the prospective intern.
