Working at PHLP

At PHLP, we have been blessed with amazing staff, volunteers, and interns.  We attract driven and compassionate individuals who bring great ideas, hard work, and a willingness to dive right in. PHLP is an Equal Opportunity Employer and we are committed to diversity and inclusion in our workplace. 

Open positions are posted below.  For inquiries about career, internship, fellowship, or volunteer opportunities or to apply for an open position, follow the instructions below. If you have general questions, please e-mail HR@phlp.org.

  • PHLP invites summer internship applications from rising 2Ls and 3Ls. Interns are based in our Philadelphia office. Intern tasks include client interviewing and intake, handling Medicaid eligibility and service denial cases under the supervision of a Staff Attorney, assisting Attorneys and Paralegals with case preparation, observation of both in-person and telephonic Administrative hearings, research projects with a legal or public policy focus, and statewide health policy advocacy.

    PHLP is unable to offer payment for summer internships, but we will happily work with your law school to award you credit for your internship hours, if applicable.

    The successful candidate will be a “self-starter” who has little need for supervision, an interest in experiencing non-profit legal/advocacy work from the inside, and commitment to improving access to quality health insurance coverage and services for all Pennsylvanians.  PHLP particularly welcomes summer internship applications from law students interested in later seeking a post-graduate fellowship.

    Applications are accepted on a rolling basis. To apply, send a cover letter and resume to Pamela Silver at psilver@phlp.org.

  • We will add postings for staff positions as they become available. Please check back often.

  • PHLP evaluates candidates for sponsorship for post-graduate fellowships on a rolling basis. Candidates interested in applying for an Independence Foundation Fellowship, Skadden Fellowship, Equal Justice Works Fellowship, Philadelphia Bar Foundation Fellowship, Martin Luther King Fellowship, or other post-graduate public interest law fellowship to work in the health law field may apply.

    To apply, please send a resume and cover letter indicating your interest in health law and any ideas you have for fellowship project proposals to Laval Miller-Wilson lmillerwilson@phlp.org.

    While ideas for project proposals are welcome, they are not required.

  • PHLP’s Philadelphia office welcomes school-year internship applications from undergraduate, graduate, and law school students. We require a 10-20 hour per week commitment and will work with your institution, if applicable, to arrange for course credit. Interested students should send a cover letter and resume to hr@phlp.org.
