OPPORTUNITIES For STUDENTS

In addition to our regular staff and fellows, the Policing Project is fortunate to draw on the energy and labor of talented students from New York University, the University of Chicago and other local universities.

Policing Project Legal Fellows

The Policing Project’s new fellowship program provides opportunities for current first- and second-year students to engage in a wide variety of work from conducting factual research into particular policing technologies or civilian oversight bodies to drafting new police department policies relating to surveillance technologies and use of force, and much more.

Fellowships for the 2019-2020 academic year are filled. Please check back for information on the 2020-2021 hiring cycle.

The Policing Project Externship

Students in the Policing Project Externship work closely with the Policing Project personnel and our partners across the country. The NYU Externship is offered in both the Fall and Spring semesters through NYU Law. Students may sign up for either or both sessions. Summer externships are offered through the University of Chicago, NYU Law and other qualifying programs.

Externship applications for the 2018-2019 academic year are closed. Please check back this summer for updates on the 2019-2020 academic year. The Policing Project is not part of the clinic matching system.
