The project is small, made up of law students, staff attorneys, and undergraduate interns. As a result, undergraduate interns have the opportunity to work hands-on with the clients and cases.
The WV Innocence Project is looking for current full-time WVU undergraduate students who are interested in pursuing a career in law, advocacy, non-profit work or public administration. The legal intern will work in the clinic for 5-10 hours a week. Tasks will include organizing case files, research for cases, answering mail and other duties as assigned. Internships are unpaid, but eligible to receive class credit through the student's department or major.
Applications will be accepted until March 15, with interviews in April and decisions by May. To apply, fill out this application.
