The legal internships at the Campaign for the Fair Sentencing of Youth will give law students an opportunity to work on the cutting edge of constitutional and human rights law.The goal of the Campaign is to support litigation and legislative strategies to abolish life-without-parole sentences for juveniles in the United States and ensure that all children have a meaningful opportunity to obtain release once they have been rehabilitated.

The litigation intern will help support CFSY by drafting legal memos for the litigation team, including analysis of state laws relating to extreme sentences for youth, parole and review eligibility for youth, and mitigating sentencing factors for courts to consider once a juvenile has been tried and convicted in adult court. The work of the litigation intern will be integral toward our broader strategy of eliminating life without parole as a sentencing option for juveniles.
