The Disability Law Center is
interested in recruiting legal and non-legal interns who wish to
gain experience with an organization that provides advocacy for
individuals with disabilities.
The Disability Law Center
(DLC) is the Protection and Advocacy agency for the Commonwealth of
Massachusetts. DLC is a private, non-profit organization
mandated by the Federal Government to provide legal assistance to
Massachusetts residents with disabilities. DLC’s mission is to
promote the fundamental rights of all people with disabilities so
that they may participate fully and equally in the social and
economic life of Massachusetts.
Legal interns will work on
active DLC cases. This work will include performing legal
research, writing legal memoranda, participation in client meetings,
and otherwise participating in substantive legal work. Lawyers,
paralegals and administrative staff all have a hand in attending to
our clients, and are all equally respected. DLC has an open
door policy whereby interns are given ample opportunity to interact
with our entire staff on any legal issue. Please see our
for more information on our legal work.
