3) Inside the Living Rm

Inside the Living Rm

My name is Jose Murillo and I am the Director of Professional Development for the student ran organization, Inside the Living Room (ILR).  ILR holds a mission to provide eye-opening and hands-on opportunities for students interested in learning more about immigration/refugee rights. We are emailing your organization because we believe that some of your members may hold special interest in our internship. 

Our year-long internship runs from the beginning of October to the end of April. Interns must be able to dedicate a minimum of 4 hours per week (however best fits with their schedules!). That being said, they are NOT required to complete hours during any official breaks (Thanksgiving, Winter, and Spring), RRR Week, and Finals Week. 

Anyone and everyone is welcomed to apply for the internship. You do NOT need to be majoring in anything related to law and/or interested in pursuing a career in law.

The deadline to apply for the ILR Internship is Saturday, September 15th at 12:00pm. Below you can find the link to the ILR website where you can find more information about the internship for those that may be interested. Please feel free to email ilrstudentdirector@gmail.com with any further questions.
