Interning at the North Suburban Legal Aid Clinic is a great way of getting a comprehensive look into the non-profit and legal services world. We are committed to making sure interns leave with an understanding of how legal clinics are run and how they help surrounding communities. Interns will be given the opportunity to sit in on intakes, go to court, practice grant writing skills, research surrounding communities, and more.
