The BCCLA is seeking summer law students who are passionate about working to uphold civil liberties and human rights across BC and Canada.
The full-time role offers an opportunity to be closely involved with BCCLA’s public interest advocacy work. Students will work in all program areas, including litigation, public education, research and outreach. The role carries a minimum 12-week period, up to a maximum of 14 weeks (to be discussed with successful candidates).
The BCCLA is a small team with big reach, and we want you to be part of our work. With a mandate that includes work on police accountability, democratic rights, patients’ rights, national security, and prisoners’ rights, we are one of the most vibrant and visible advocacy groups in the country.
The BCCLA is committed to building an inclusive and diverse workplace, and encourage applications from all qualified applicants. Indigenous and racialized people are strongly encouraged to apply. Applicants from traditionally underrepresented or marginalized groups are encouraged to self-identify, should they feel comfortable in doing so, in their cover letter or body of their email when submitting their application.
The deadline for applications is September 4, 2019. However, we will accept and evaluate applications on a rolling basis. Students with a strong interest in the BCCLA are encouraged to apply early.
