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.

Internship — TexasLawHelp.org LiveChat

Within the LiveChat feature, you'll help visitors navigate the site and find relevant information for their legal issue. You will be using your legal knowledge to triage their legal situation then direct them to appropriate site resources like forms, clinics, legal aid organizations, and legal toolkits. As students, you will not be providing legal advice since no attorney-client relationship would be formed. A Texas Legal Services Center attorney will be on hand to review your work and be of help.

 

You'll learn how to interact with clients experiencing urgent legal needs directly and quickly collect facts, spot issues, and provide the appropriate legal information/resources. You'll gain exposure to the practical realities of the day-to-day practice of law along with a wide-range of civil practice areas, like family, consumer, housing, and estate law. 

Qualifications: Currently enrolled in an accredited law school in Texas or a certified paralegal.

Location: Remote. You may work anywhere that has a reliable internet connection.
