DRNC is seeking exceptional attorneys with 0-3 years’ experience and strong commitment to our mission, to begin a 2-year legal fellowship. Current 3Ls are eligible for consideration for a fellowship commencing August 2019.  Closing date to submit applications: March 4, 2019. A decision will be made by early April and applicants will be notified. 

Law Student Externships and Semester Internships

Disability Rights NC has year-round opportunities for students to work with us. Students in law school and schools of social work have worked with us during the school year and summer for credit. We regularly work with pro bono programs at area law schools to recruit students to staff projects throughout the year. We also are open to undergraduate volunteers, depending on experience.

Law Student Summer Internships

Each summer, we hire four law students. We can offer students a variety of experiences both in and out of the office because we represent clients with all types of disabilities statewide on a wide range of issues including education, public benefits, disability civil rights, employment, housing, voting access, and accessibility.

If interested, please submit a resume and a cover letter detailing your interest in disability law to tadra.martin@disabilityrightsnc.org. Applications are accepted on a rolling basis. If you attend either UNC School of Law or NC Central School of Law, please check with your Career Services Office about on-campus interviews and submit your application through that process. The position is unpaid, so we encourage students to explore grant funding through their law school.
