Message from the Young Lawyers Division:
$5K Stipend Opportunity for PIIP Internships
Since 2009, the YLD has been at the forefront of the fight to combat decreases in both young lawyer employment opportunities and staffing at Georgia's public interest legal organizations. Through the Public Interest Internship Program (PIIP), the YLD has, over the past eight years, made it possible for 36 young lawyers and law students to pursue internships at Georgia's public interest legal organizations. These 36 PIIP interns have provided approximately 14,000 hours of service to Georgians in need of legal services that they otherwise could not afford. Providing legal services to the indigent remains a critical need in Georgia and is one of the focuses of the State Bar's strategic plan. The need for PIIP is as great now as it has ever been.
As a result, I am happy to announce that the YLD is now accepting applications for the 2018 class of PIIP interns. Any law student or new lawyer who has already secured a summer internship for at least 10 weeks and 400 hours of service at a public interest legal organization in Georgia can apply for a PIIP internship and the $5,000 stipend that accompanies it. Applications will be vetted by the YLD Public Interest Internship Program Committee, with the applicants ranked based upon their ties to the state of Georgia and commitment to public service, essay, strength of resume and extracurricular activities.
Apply here. Applications are due no later than March 30 at 5 p.m.
Won't you seize this opportunity to assist the YLD in its efforts to combat the ongoing shortage of legal employment opportunities for young lawyers and aid in the delivery of legal services to the millions of Georgians in need of them by applying for a PIIP internship?
