Crumiller Legal Intern Brooklyn, NY · Part time

A motivated law school student with an interest in employment and civil rights law

Description

We are a feminist litigation firm that is well known for representing victims in high-profile sexual harassment and employment discrimination lawsuits. We have also teamed up with trailblazing victims’ rights law firm C.A. Goldberg PLLC to create the Survivors Law Project, fighting sex abuse and those who enable it.


We have rigorous standards; the payoff is the opportunity to work with a truly top-notch team. The most important thing is that you are nice, and secondly, that you are sharp. We like to think and move fast, and we need people who can keep up. Excellent communication and interpersonal skills are paramount. We go overboard to keep clients in the loop and are a positive, collaborative team. You must be a person who is motivated to excellence, both intellectually and emotionally; our work is driven by our passion.


Anticipated Student Responsibilities:

Students will work on various tasks related to the Firm’s current needs. Work will include case law research, drafting complaints, charges of discrimination, demand letters, and motions related to our active employment discrimination cases. Students will have the opportunity to assist with discovery obligations including reviewing client documents for relevancy, drafting deficiency letters, and drafting responses to discovery requests. Students may meet with clients and/or witnesses. Students may have the opportunity to sit in on mediations, settlement conferences, oral arguments, depositions, and arbitration hearings. Students will assist with all facets of the litigation stage of any active case.
