Directory Entry : Founded in 1967 as the Environmental Defense Fund, we tackle the most serious environmental problem...a scrappy group of scientists and a lawyer on Long Island, New York, fighting to save osprey from the toxic pesticide DDT. Using scientific evidence, our founders got DDT banned nationwide. Today, we’re one of the world's leading environmental organizations. In the U.S., Fortune magazine called our board one of the country's most influential nonprofit boards. You can see the jobs of the EDF on their website.

Environmental Defense Fund's Rocky Mountain Office  seeks highly qualified and deeply motivated law students to work on projects related to climate change, air quality, and energy.  Environmental Defense Fund is a national, non-profit, non-governmental advocacy organization with 750,000 members nationwide, and offices across the country.  
Position Description
The internships are ten weeks in duration, and thirty-five hours per week (full-time).  We seek students interested in working on cutting edge regional, national, and international climate and air quality issues.  Exceptional candidates who will have only completed one year of law school will be considered. 
Previous interns have researched and written legal and policy documents for federal court litigation, administrative litigation, national and state regulatory proceedings, and various policy venues.  For example, research activities have supported: U.S. Supreme Court litigation over global warming and power plant emissions; D.C. Circuit litigation over greenhouse gas regulation under the Clean Air Act, major new health-based air quality standards, and rules to reduce industrial air pollution; advocacy to reduce global warming pollution; major national and regional policy initiatives on air quality and climate change; international agreements and guidelines regarding trans-boundary pollution control programs in the U.S./Mexico border region; and protection of air quality and ecological systems in national parks.
The Rocky Mountain Office is located in Boulder, Colorado, nestled at the foothills of the Rocky Mountains, about 25 miles northwest of Denver.  Boulder, home of the University of Colorado, is renowned for its stunning scenery, lofty peaks and beautiful blue skies.  It is also a haven for those who love the great outdoors, and is rich with extraordinary hiking, running, and mountain biking trails, road cycling opportunities, fly fishing lakes and streams, and premier rock climbing. 
To be considered for one of the rewarding internships with the Environmental Defense Fund's Climate & Clean Air legal team, please apply by submitting your résumé, references, transcripts, writing sample, and a cover letter. In your letter please describe your interests in environmental law and policy work, relevant completed course work, whether or not you are able to work for class credit, and if so, how much, and note any work-study or grant money you will be able to provide.  Summer stipends, competitive with other leading non-profit organizations, may be available.
