      Student Internship in Housing Law and Policy

      Job Title: Student Internship in Housing Law and Policy

      Description: The National Housing Law Project (Oakland) seeks students for
      fall 2009, spring 2010, and summer 2010 internships or field placements. A
      significant portion of the students’ time will be spent on
      foreclosure-related issues, including rights of tenants in foreclosed
      properties and stabilization of neighborhoods impacted by the foreclosure
      crisis. Recent significant student work projects have included drafting
      testimony for Congressional hearings; submitting comments on proposed
      regulations; researching the impact of proposed housing legislation and
      regulations; drafting amendments to federal housing legislation;
      summarizing briefs in preparation for oral arguments; providing research
      assistance in drafting pleadings and motions; drafting portions of
      advocacy guides used by housing advocates across the country; and
      researching and writing articles for NHLP's monthly Housing Law Bulletin.

      Ideal candidates must possess high-caliber research and writing skills;
      demonstrate a commitment to working for low-income and underserved
      populations; and demonstrate an ability to work independently as well as a
      member of a team. Students will have an opportunity to develop a writing
      sample as part of their work. NHLP has successfully sponsored several of
      its interns for post-graduate fellowships. Stipends are available for
      students who are not receiving school credit.

      To apply, please email or mail a cover letter, resume, writing sample, and
      3 references to:
