Dear BLSA Students,
We are very excited to announce an incredible opportunity for two first or second year law students. The Center for Constitutional Rights is providing two law student fellowships at the Bureau des Avocats Internationaux through its Ella Baker Summer Internship Program. This is an excellent opportunity for students to contribute to exciting, cutting-edge human rights work while learning how to use the law for progressive social change. Applications are due November 11 (2Ls) and December 15 (1Ls). You can find information on the program and the application process attached.
The Bureau des Avocats Internationaux is the leading human rights legal organization in Haiti. Since 1995, they have helped victims prosecute important human rights cases, trained Haitian lawyers and spoken out on social justice issues. Ella Baker interns will be working closely alongside the BAI and assisting in their various advocacy and legal projects. Attached is a letter from one of BAI's former interns, Lindsey Laveaux, discussing her experience with BAI and encouraging students to apply for this opportunity.
We greatly encourage law students with a passion for Haiti and social justice to apply for this internship. To apply, please visit http://ccrjustice.org/ella-baker-fellowship for the application and further information on the internship.
