Workplace Programs Legal Internship (graduate and law students)

For more than 45 years the National Partnership for Women & Families has fought for every major policy advance that has helped women and families. Today, we promote reproductive health and rights, quality health care, fairness in the workplace, and policies that help women and men manage the dual demands of work and family. Founded in 1971 as the Women's Legal Defense Fund, the National Partnership for Women & Families is a nonprofit, nonpartisan 501(c)(3) organization located in Washington, D.C.

The National Partnership seeks a Legal Intern to support our Workplace (work/family and workplace fairness) programs. Our Workplace team works to advance work/family policies (e.g., paid sick days, paid family leave, the Family and Medical Leave Act, workplace flexibility) and workplace fairness initiatives (e.g., employment discrimination, equal pay, judicial nominations).

The Legal Intern’s duties will include researching and analyzing legal and policy matters; drafting legal briefs, reports, talking points, fact sheets, and other written materials; tracking state work-family legislation; attending meetings, hearings, and briefings; and monitoring federal and state court litigation.

Qualifications include strong research, writing, communication, and interpersonal skills; the ability to manage multiple tasks and take initiative; and the ability to work independently.
