The National Health Law Program’s Spitzer Internship is developing the next generation of public interest health rights advocacy. The paid internship, created in honor of former Executive Director Emily Spitzer, enables talented law students to spend spend a summer with the National Health Law Program, learning from its legal and policy experts, and gaining invaluable insight into the challenges of public interest advocacy. Through Spitzer Internship we are providing the tools for future generations of public interest lawyers and policy advocates to protect and further the health and civil rights of all people.
The Spitzer Internship allows us to provide law students from law schools from all parts of the country with annual summer positions in each of our three offices – Washington, Los Angeles, and Chapel Hill. The National Health Law Program is committed to cultivating an environment that empowers an exceptional and diverse staff and to advancing health equity in our substantive work. We welcome applicants who represent that diversity and who will contribute to our equity journey, including people of color, women, people with disabilities, and LGBTQ individuals.
We invite you to contribute to the Spitzer Internship – to join us in providing for the long-term success of our future health advocates.
