Summer 2024 Internship Program

Hybrid – Full-Time – Paid

6AC is now accepting applications for the Summer 2024 Internship Program!

Law students are integral to our team, gaining direct exposure to pressing criminal justice issues across the nation and making meaningful contributions to 6AC’s evaluations and policy work. A 6AC internship is ideal for any law student interested in criminal justice policy and reform, indigent defense, and social and racial equity, and provides a unique opportunity to learn about the type of multi-strategy advocacy that is necessary to advance justice.

While specific projects change each internship cohort, below are some highlights:

  • Observe court proceedings and interview stakeholders (including judges, defense attorneys, and prosecutors) for 6AC’s evaluations 
  • Receive recognition in nationally published reports (e.g., The Right to Counsel in Lake County, California and The Right to Counsel in Oakland County, Michigan)
  • Conduct legal research and writing on cutting-edge issues pertaining to the right to counsel
  • Track news, litigation, and legislation on the right to counsel in all 50 states daily
  • Receive ongoing training, supervision, and mentorship from 6AC’s staff 

Residency and stipends: Interns must live in or near the Boston area during the ten-week, full-time hybrid internship program to meet in person at least weekly. 6AC will supplement law school stipends so that each student receives a total of $10,000 for the summer.

To apply: Applications are reviewed on a rolling basis until positions are filled. To apply, please submit a (1) cover letter explaining your interest in 6AC’s work, (2) resume, and (3) law school transcript (may be unofficial) to Aditi Goel, Senior Program Manager at

6AC’s commitment to core principles of diversity, equity, and inclusion is central to our mission, impact, and success. We believe that a board and staff composed of varied perspectives generates better ideas and strategies to solve the complex problems our nation’s criminal legal system faces. We encourage students from wide-ranging backgrounds, perspectives, and lived experiences to apply.
