The Bronx Defenders welcomes its 2015 summer interns!

We are very excited to welcome our 2015 summer interns! The Bronx Defenders internship program gives students the opportunity to experience and learn client-centered, holistic advocacy through hands-on work with our interdisciplinary advocates. This summer BxD is hosting a total of 70 interns, including 48 law school students from 20 different schools who will undergo comprehensive, interdisciplinary training and learn from attorneys in our Family Defense, Criminal Defense, Immigration, and Civil Action practices. We are also hosting 19 college interns who will learn from our Investigators, Policy & Community Organizing team, Parent Advocates, and Civil Legal Advocates, and four college interns working towards their MSW who will work with our Social Work practice.
