Spitzer Interns will work closely with National Health Law Program staff attorneys who are among the most experienced, knowledgeable, and respected health law advocates in the nation. National Health Law Program attorneys work collaboratively across offices and all engage in the primary work of the organization – providing high quality advice and support to state-based health lawyers, administration officials, and policy makers. All of our offices engage in federal administrative advocacy, litigation, and state-based advocacy, however opportunities to participate in litigation may be greater in our Carrboro, NC office, opportunities to work on California state policy may be greater in Los Angeles and opportunities to work on national policy may be greater in Washington, DC.
Spitzer Interns will receive up to $10,000 for 10 weeks of work. The specific amounts will be determined on a case by case basis taking into consideration other funding that is available to the intern and restrictions that are attached to it.
