Student Experiences at NHLC
Part of the kuleana of all attorneys is to contribute to the development of rising lawyers, and developing the rising generation of indigenous rights advocates is one of NHLC’s strategic priorities.
NHLC hosts legal and undergraduate interns each summer, and regularly hosts students for short term service trips, pro bono projects, and externships throughout the year.
How to Apply
NHLC is currently accepting applications for Summer 2024.
NHLC participates in the fall and spring on campus interview processes at the University of Hawai’i Richardson School of Law.
NHLC also accepts applications from students across the country at any time for summer work, and other experience during the school year, i.e., for externships and service projects. For the summer program, NHLC recommends that students send in their application materials starting in January. Applicants should send their application materials to StudentProgramsMgmt@nhlchi.org. Applications should include a resume, most recent transcript, and a cover letter explaining:
- why you are interested in working at NHLC,
- relevant experiences that have lead you to an interest in NHLC,
- the kind of work you are interested in doing at NHLC,
- the type of experience you are seeking, e.g., summer internship, externship, short term service project, etc.,
- your preferred dates for your work at NHLC, and
- whether you have public interest funding support from your school or a different program to support your student experience. This is not required, but helpful to understand.
