Native American Internship

The Native American Unit, based in Bangor, provides civil legal services to the Maliseet, Micmac, Passamaquoddy and Penobscot tribes as well as to other Native Americans residing in Maine. We travel regularly to Indian Island, Indian Township, Pleasant Point, and Houlton.

Specific responsibilities include outreach to reservations, client interviews, factual investigation, negotiation on behalf of clients, representation at administrative hearings, legal research and writing, and litigation support.

Internships with the Native American Unit are available in Bangor. Interested students should send a cover letter and resume to Judd Esty-Kendall jesty-kendall@ptla.org. Applications will be considered on a rolling basis, but priority will be given to those received by July 15th for Fall/Spring Internships or March 15th for Summer Internships.
