Opportunities at HIRC

HIRC Student Workstations

If you are interested in volunteering, interning, or interpreting for the Clinic, please send a cover letter and detailed resume to hirc@law.harvard.edu. HIRC receives many volunteer requests and is only able to take a few volunteers and interns each summer. Please apply early - we review all requests on a rolling basis. Applicants from other law schools welcome. Please bear in mind that the needs of the Clinic fluctuate so we may not be able to accommodate everyone who is available and interested.

Thanks to donations from clinic alumni, the Clinic is able to offer new opportunities for students to travel domestically and abroad. The Clinic also hosts the following fellowships:

Cleary Gottlieb Fellowship

The Cleary Gottlieb Fellowship will reopen in December for applications. The selected Harvard Law student will work with the Harvard Immigration and Refugee Clinical Program and Greater Boston Legal Services on cases involving the direct representation of noncitizens applying for U.S. asylum and related protections. In addition, the Program is active in appellate and policy advocacy on local, national and international levels. The fellow will work on appellate and advocacy issues, perform research and assist in representing clients through the clinic.

Additionally, the Clinic is grateful to Sheela Murthy for endowing the immigration travel fund enabling immigration law teachers to attend professional meetings and conferences.  All donations made to the clinic go directly toward enhancing student curriculum and opportunities as well as serving the immigrant community of Boston with which we work.
