Summer 2023 Democracy Undergraduate Internship, DC

Washington, DC - Full Time

The Brennan Center for Justice at NYU School of Law is a nonpartisan law and policy institute that seeks to improve the systems of democracy and justice in the United States. We work to hold our political institutions and laws accountable to the twin American ideals of democracy and equal justice for all. The Brennan Center’s work ranges from voting rights to campaign finance reform, from ending mass incarceration to preserving Constitutional protections in the fight against terrorism. Part think tank, part advocacy group, part cutting edge communications hub, we start with rigorous research. We craft innovative policies. And we fight for them – in Congress and the states, in the courts, and in the court of public opinion.

We are seeking interns to provide administrative and clerical support to staff in our Washington DC office in our Democracy program.

Note: This internship will take place in person at our Washington DC office.


All interns will assist with general administrative, research, and clerical work for the Brennan Center, including filing, coordinating meetings, drafting routine correspondence, and assisting with events. There will be opportunities to attend and observe substantive meetings, events, and conversations on program work.

In addition to administrative duties, specific responsibilities include: assisting in the research for and rollout of reports, monitoring federal legislative and executive branch activity, and aiding the Democracy Program’s federal advocacy efforts.


The ideal candidates are independent self-starters; detail-oriented; energetic; punctual, and highly organized. Interns must also have excellent, research, writing, and analytical skills, as well as a passion for our issues. Experience with Microsoft Excel and Microsoft Word is a must. Database experience is very helpful. Applicant must be open to evolving responsibilities.

The Brennan Center is committed to advancing Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion in the workplace. We continuously work with our staff to find new ways to increase diversity and to build and cultivate an inclusive and equitable work environment, where everyone can be their true self and feel a strong sense of belonging. As such, we seek to hire employees who have a commitment to and/or experience with diversity, equity, and inclusion. In addition, we expect employees to participate/contribute with DEI initiatives or activities with recruitment, retention, and workplace culture.

This internship is only open to current undergraduate students.


Approximately 40 hours per week


$15.00 per hour.
