Jobs & Internships


Thank you for you interest. We are not hiring at this time.


The Center for WorkLife Law is hiring summer law fellows.  Housed at the University of California, Hastings College of the Law, the Center for WorkLife Law is a nonprofit advocacy and research organization that seeks to advance gender and racial equality in the workplace and in education. Our current initiatives include legal advocacy to promote the rights of pregnant and breastfeeding employees; The Pregnant Scholar resource center on pregnancy and parenting in higher education; research on how gender bias differs by race; a path-breaking study on fair work schedules for hourly workers; social science research on interrupting bias in the legal profession, STEM, and other industries; and programs and best practices for advancing women leaders. The Center has also been a pioneer in the field of Family Responsibilities Discrimination (FRD), a form of employment discrimination against workers based on their family caregiving responsibilities.  An internship with WorkLife Law is particularly well-suited for students with an interest in employment law, workers’ rights, and/or women’s advancement.

Summer interns are involved in all aspects of the Center’s work, including participating in strategy sessions, researching law and policy, and contributing to articles and reports.  Interns also attend the Center’s special events, including a three-day leadership skills training for women in law. Interns typically produce a significant piece of written work over the course of the summer, usually in the form of a legal research memo.  WorkLife Law staff is dedicated to providing professional mentorship to summer interns, including conducting a mock legal job interview and providing constructive feedback on written work.

Summer interns receive a $5,000 stipend for ten weeks of full-time work.

To apply, please submit a cover letter, resume, writing sample, and unofficial law school transcript to Staff Attorney Jessica Lee at Applications must be received by February 28, 2018.

The Center for WorkLife Law is an equal opportunity employer. We encourage applications from all qualified individuals without regard to race, color, religion, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, age, national origin, marital status, citizenship, disability, or veteran status.
