LCCHP Offers Law Students & Recent J.D.s Internship Opportunity

Posted on March 4, 2010


Built in 1781 and rebuilt in 1845, the chapel stands beside a former hospital complex at the heart of Pornic, a commune in western France.

You may notice I hat-tip relatively regularly to the Lawyer’s Committee for Cultural Heritage and Preservation (LCCHP), a dynamite non-profit for people with similar interests to mine.  Well, they’ve posted an internship opportunity for law students and recent graduates of law school.  If I were earlier in my career I’d take it myself!  Here are the details, from an LCCHP email —

The Lawyers’ Committee for Cultural Heritage Preservation is seeking volunteer interns for the summer of 2010. Through its internship program, the Lawyers’ Committee is giving law students and recent graduates an opportunity to become involved in its exciting work. In addition to making a valid contribution to the organization, interns will benefit from their work by gaining hands-on experience in cultural property law, a fast growing field of increasing importance.

Interns are encouraged to work remotely from their home institutions, though there is also the possibility of working onsite, on a case by case basis. They are expected to work a minimum of 20 hours a week for at least six weeks. Start and end dates are flexible, as are the number of positions available.

Interested applicants should submit an online application by March 31, 2010.   For more information, please contact Tess Davis at
