Fair Shake Is Hiring Interns

Fair Shake Environmental Legal Services, an organization that provides sliding-scale cost legal services for private clients in environmental law matters, is looking for interns. 
This is an amazing organization founded by Emily Collins, a prior director of the Pitt Law environmental clinic. Based on Emily's experience as a clinician, Fair Shake has made training young lawyers and law students a core part of its mission.
Here's the announcement from Fair Shake:
Fair Shake Environmental Legal Services is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit law firm designed to incubate legal services start-ups in the area of environmental law for underserved, modest means clients. The purposes of the organization include the education of attorneys in serving modest means clients, increasing equal access to justice, and community empowerment in the Appalachian Basin (New York to North Carolina). Fair Shake advances local, community decision-making about community health, environmental protection and cleanup, and development by providing access to justice for individuals and groups that are currently underserved. Both our Pittsburgh and Akron offices are currently seeking applicants for a Spring Semester 2019 Legal Internship.

Prior experience or education in the areas of environmental law, land use and zoning, or natural resources law is preferred.
