Internships and Careers


Thank you for your interest in Catholic Migration Service’s internship program.

Current Internship Opportunities
Catholic Migration Services is currently accepting applications from 1L and 2L students for summer 2018 legal internships. Catholic Migration, a non-profit organization associated with the Roman Catholic Diocese of Brooklyn, with offices in Queens and Brooklyn, has provided free and low-cost legal advice and representation since 1971. Our legal services – which include assistance with matters involving immigration, housing and employment – are available to low-income New York City residents regardless of religion or immigration status.

Summer legal interns will be responsible for legal research, memorandum writing, factual investigation, development of educational and outreach materials, client interviewing, and a host of other needs that arise at Catholic Migration litigation and advocacy efforts. Internships are unpaid and limited in number.

Applicants should be currently enrolled in an accredited law school, have excellent writing, communications and analytical skill, a strong commitment to social and economic justice, and proficiency in Spanish or one of the Chinese dialects.

Students may seek summer funding from their law school’s student-run public interest organizations and foundations. Interns are expected to work for at least eight (8) to ten (10) weeks during the summer. Applicants should email a cover letter and resume to the address below. Catholic Migration Services will fill summer legal intern positions on a rolling basis; however, we encourage applicants to apply as soon as possible to:
