Public Interest Job of the Week – BPI 2013 Summer Public Interest Internship

Business and Professional People for the Public Interest (BPI), a public interest law and policy center that addresses compelling issues of social justice and quality of life in the Chicago region, is hiring interns for the summer of 2013. Interns work closely with staff on important public interest projects in BPI’s program groups: affordable housing, public housing, public education, and political reform. Interns receive excellent supervision and mentorship, the opportunity to contribute directly to solving pressing policy issues, and the chance to learn more about Chicago’s ever-growing public interest community. BPI is frequently able to offer summer funding assistance to legal interns through the Public Interest Law Initiative (PILI) program.

Students at all states of their graduate policy or law career, including 1Ls, 2Ls, 3Ls, and joint degree students are encouraged to apply. BPI makes summer internship hiring decisions on a rolling basis.
