Summer Legal Internship

We are now accepting applications for a Summer 2022 Legal Intern. This position is located in CELP’s Seattle Office.

We seek a legal intern with a demonstrated interest in environmental issues. There are a number of projects that the intern might work on including researching alternative water legal system, researching other water issues in Washington water management, drafting potential legislation, or drafting comments and responses to agency rulemaking. While we don’t anticipate any litigation at this time our intern will also be involved in that process should we be engaging in litigation by this summer.

Qualified candidates will have completed their 2L year and taken an environmental law course.  Coursework or clinical experience in administrative law is preferred. Exact internship dates are flexible depending on academic schedules, but generally run from June – August and last 10 weeks. Please email a CV, a writing sample, and references to Maggie Franquemont, Staff Attorney at

Deadline for applications is March 1st.

We are hopeful this position will be in-person. If necessary, due to COVID, we will arrange for the internship to be hybrid or remote. The intern should still be located in the Seattle area. In accordance with COVID-19 safety practices, CELP expects all employees and interns to be fully vaccinated. If you have any questions related to our COVID policy please reach out to Trish Rolfe, Executive Director – trolfe[at]
