Internships

Get real-world experience while helping us tackle real-world problems. Internships with Texas Legal Services Center put you on the frontlines of access to justice—helping Texas' most vulnerable populations get the vital legal help they need.

There are two types of internships available at Texas Legal Services Center: 1.) Traditional in-office intern opportunities, and; 2.) Serving our clients through the TexasLawHelp.org LiveChat. 

If you're interested in working on the TexasLawHelp.org LiveChat project, email livechat@tlsc.org with an attached resume. 

Internship — Access and Visitation Hotline

This is a great experience for those interested in pursuing legal careers because you're working directly with clients. You'll learn to think quickly on your feet, dissect situations to determine legal needs, translate legal information into language that clients can easily understand, and receive a general overview of family law. You'll  also learn equally important skills like client communications, phone/speaking skills, conflict resolution, and general office procedures. All of which are very advantageous when beginning your professional career.

Qualifications: Currently enrolled in an accredited higher education institution — with a special preference for those studying law, civil service, social work, or those pursuing their paralegal certification.

Location: Austin

Internship — Medical-Legal Partnerships

Play an important role in ensuring that patients have access to high-quality legal assistance in the clinical setting on cases that impact health and safety, shelter, economic security, and personal stability.

This patient-facing position offers the opportunity to learn about the connections between law and health in the clinical setting. Assignments may include assisting with case management, public health and legal research, presentation design, patient-client interviewing, and even legal drafting.

Qualifications: We think it takes a village, and that professional isolation is inefficient. Previous interns have been law students or paralegal students, of course, but others have been pre-law or pre-med, studying health and society, biology, neuroscience, and public health. If you're interested in health, we're probably interested in at least having a conversation with you.

Location: Austin (People's Community Clinic)
