Internship Opportunities at MHLAC

MHLAC strives to protect and advance the rights of persons with mental health issues through advocacy, litigation, education, and systemic projects. The priority areas of focus at this time are family law; school exclusion and discipline; health care reform; due process rights for persons in psychiatric facilities; mental health care for persons in jail; emergency room mistreatment; employment discrimination issues; and access to state services. Interns have the opportunity to do legal and factual research and writing and attend meetings, court and administrative proceedings related to current projects and cases.

Semester Internships

Semester internships are generally part-time, for credit (through the student's educational institution), and take into consideration students’ class schedules. We also welcome applications for full-time semester internships.

MHLAC is now accepting applications for 2019 Summer Internships

Only law students will be considered for summer internships; a full-time internship experience for a minimum of 10 weeks each summer. Students will receive a stipend from the MHLAC Hennessey Internship Fund in an amount to be determined depending on the number of interns hired as well as other funding considerations (such as students who receive funding via work study or public interest grants).

To apply, please send a resume and cover letter to: Megan Mauskapf, Esq. at and specify whether you are seeking a full-time summer internship or a full-time or part-time semester internship.
