Law Clerks & Interns

The summer clerkships have been filled for 2020!

If you are interested in applying for Summer 2021, please check here this summer for information on how to apply

We hire 1-2 law clerks to work in our Boise and Portland offices and during the summer. Law clerks work closely with Advocates for the West’s 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. Contact Staff Attorney Bryan Hurlbutt to find out more. 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.
