Description

The Ohio Center for Law-Related Education (OCLRE) advances law-related and civic education programs throughout the state through curriculum development, educator training, and innovative learning experiences. All of the Center’s programs align with Ohio academic standards and focus on imparting practical law-related information to students and teachers, developing problem-solving and critical thinking skills for students, and providing positive engagement between students and the community. OCLRE’s student programs include Ohio High School and Middle School Mock Trial, Moot Court, We the People, Youth for Justice, and Project Citizen; teacher and educator programs include the Law and Citizenship Annual Conference, Ohio Government in Action, and program-based professional development.

Internships range from 8 to 15 weeks and may be repeated. Hours are flexible (usually 4 to 12 hours arranged over 1 to 2 days), and depend on assignments, but interested applicants need to be available to work during regular office hours: Monday-Friday 830am to 430pm; a set weekly schedule is required. School credit requirements may determine the number of hours per week.

OCLRE internships and volunteer positions encourage transformative growth, offer hands-on practical experiences in non-profit and program management, and develop career skills. All internships are available for course credit as required by academic institutions. Positions are unpaid but offer additional benefits to course credit, including: a professional environment with first class accommodations; exposure to law-related organizations and networking with Ohio lawyers and judges; professional skill development in design as well as experience in marketing and professional writing, project management, and event support and coordination; and letters of recommendation.

How to apply: submit a resume or list of work experience, three references with contact information, and a personal statement detailing specific internship interests. Please also indicate weekly availability and internship start and end date. Submit all application materials to amallat@oclre.org. We will contact you if we would like to proceed with an interview.
