Summer Internships at Community Law

Would you like to spend your summer working with Community Law Wellington and Hutt Valley?  We have several part-time internships available!

Community Law work is varied, interesting and meaningful. Our interns get involved in all aspects of Community Law business, from research and client interviewing to filing and coffee drinking. If you’re passionate about access to justice, excited to work in a bicultural organisation and keen to gain experience, we would love to have you.

Internships available

  • General Services Intern (Wellington office)
