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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
