The Mississippi Center for Justice Now Accepting Applications for Internships

October 19, 2011

 The Mississippi Center for Justice, a nonprofit, public interest, homegrown law firm, invites applications from law students to take part during the summer in its work advancing racial and economic justice in Mississippi.  Although the program cannot provide a stipend, it will work with students to meet grant application deadlines at CSL or with other funders. They encourage all summer interns accepted into the program to submit an application to Equal Justice Works Summer Corps to earn a $1000 education award (applications open in spring 2011 – check for more information). You should submit a résumé with current contact information, including an e-mail address, and a cover letter that outlines your interest in the Mississippi Center for Justice and its work, and identifies what kind of experiences and policy areas draw you to the organization. Include three references.  If you are applying for a summer grant from an external source, please make any deadlines you must meet clear in the opening paragraph. Please also indicate whether you have a preference for working out of our Jackson, Biloxi (Gulf Coast) or Indianola (Mississippi Delta) office, or if you are open to placement in either office. More information is available at  


Applications for Summer 2012 placement must be postmarked AND received via e-mail by February 1, 2012. Send resume, cover letter and references to:

Mississippi Center for Justice, Summer Internships, P.O. Box 1023, Jackson, Mississippi 39215-1023; Phone: (601)352-2269;

(Email submission alone is fine.)
