HALT is a public interest nonprofit organization dedicated to improving access to and accountability within the civil legal system. Among its goals are expanding self-help resources and alternatives to traditional legal channels so that more Americans can handle their own legal affairs, as well as holding legal professionals accountable for their actions. In addition, HALT publishes books and pamphlets to help educate citizens on the legal process.
The HALT internship program strives to expose students to the difficulties and rewards of engaging in public interest work. Each intern is involved in research and writing on issues related to civil justice reform and improving legal access, and completes one major research project by the end of the program. Students also have the opportunity to write one or more articles for the HALT newsletter and become involved in lobbying and public education campaigns.
Open to undergraduates and graduate students with an interest in public service and legal reform.
