Summer Legal Internships (Paid)
Friday, December 05, 2014

The Chesapeake Bay Foundation seeks a Legal Intern for both their Litigation Department and Maryland Office to be based at their Philip Merrill Environmental Center headquarters located in Annapolis, MD.


THE CHESAPEAKE BAY FOUNDATION

The Chesapeake Bay Foundation (CBF) is the largest regional non-profit conservation organization working solely to save the Bay. Established in 1967, CBF has a staff of approximately 185 employees working in offices in Annapolis Maryland; Richmond and Norfolk, Virginia; Harrisburg, Pennsylvania; and Washington, D.C., and in 15 field education program locations. CBF's headquarters office is in the Philip Merrill Environmental Center, the world's first LEED platinum building.

CBF has an annual budget of approximately $21 million and is supported by more than 200,000 members and e-subscribers. For more information on CBF please visit www.cbf.org.

The Litigation Department uses the law as a tool to protect and preserve the Chesapeake Bay. Using federal, state and local laws, CBF attorneys file amicus briefs, regulatory challenges and, if necessary, lawsuits to stop polluters and to ensure governmental compliance with those laws.

The Maryland Office works to Save the Bay in two key areas: environmental protection and restoration and constituency outreach and education. The state office is responsible for directing CBF's policy work on the state level and employs a fulltime attorney in this pursuit. This includes working directly with the state lawmakers by drafting and proposing legislation. The state office also works with local and state agencies on regulatory issues regarding water quality, environmental and planning issues.


CONTEXT OF THE POSITION

While legal interns with CBF work directly under attorneys, they also work with scientists, lobbyists, public relations staff, and planners. Interns may work with outside staff from other environmental organizations or governmental agencies as well. Work often involves some travel. Interns have much independence and responsibility while working with CBF. Interns are strongly encouraged to attend at least one of CBF's educational field trips (canoeing, work boat, skipjack, etc.) for a direct experience with the natural resources CBF strives to protect.

Essential functions include:

Legal intern activities with CBF involve a broad range of policy, legislative, regulatory and legal matters. Duties may include:

  • Prepare comments to proposed regulatory actions
  • Help to prepare policy positions and presentations, craft proposed legislation, and monitor legislative study committees
  • Work with staff to investigate and critique implementation of state laws and regulations
  • Review documents in support of litigation
  • Assist in preparation of administrative petitions, amicus briefs, and litigation documents
  • Conduct legal research on a broad range of environmental issues
  • Help with management of legal projects
  • Work with other staff to experience "on-the-ground" environmental activities


PROFESSIONAL EXPERIENCE AND QUALIFICATIONS

Applicants must be second year, third year or LLM students and must have a good understanding of available legal research tools such as Lexis and Westlaw. Prior environmental law course-work is also strongly preferred. We seek independent, creative thinkers who will help us to act wisely and in the public interest as we strive to "Save the Bay".

Legal internships during the summer are expected to last 10-12 weeks and interns are expected to work fulltime during this time. Students may elect to receive credit for their internships through their colleges or receive a stipend through CBF. Only one may be chosen and requests must be made clear prior to start of position.

To apply, please send resume and cover letter explaining your interest in CBF and indicate the office in which you are interested in working by March 31, 2015 to:
