BAY AREA LEGAL AID
July 5, 2011

I am a law student at a local law school and I have interned at multiple non-profits in the Bay Area. However, Bay Area Legal Aid is by far the best place that I haev ever interned. At the San Francisco office interns get their own cubicle or office so we can work productively. The office staff is the nicest and most inclusive group of people ever. They also plan a lot of activities to encourage socializing among the staff and interns.
Most of all, interns meet with clients and handle entire cases on their own. That means you will have have a lot of responsibility but the work is extremely rewarding. It is really nice to learn a lot, enjoy your work environment, and be able to help those who need legal aid.
