Law Clerks & Interns

Advocates for the West hires 1-2 law clerks to work in our Boise and Portland offices and during the summer. Law clerks work closely with attorneys – primarily on federal court environmental litigation. Law student applicants with strong writing skills and demonstrated interest in environmental matters are preferred.

We also occasionally host legal externs or legal volunteers in both offices throughout the year. If you are currently a law student looking to further your knowledge of environmental litigation, consider a clerkship or internship with us! All hiring occurs in late summer / early fall. If you are a Lewis and Clark Law School student interested in externing or interning in our Portland office during the school year, please contact the school’s externship coordinator for placement information.
