    Looking for summer internship in public interest land use law

    Hi everyone,

    I'm a law student with an interest in land use law. The law firm at which I will be working this summer offers the opportunity to spend half the summer doing some sort of public interest legal work at a non-profit organization. I'd receive full funding from the firm.

    I'd really like to apply for this opportunity, and spend the time doing research or work on issues of land use law. It'd have to be related to the law and must be public interest, but I "land use" can be interpreted broadly. Does anyone have any suggestions of organizations that do this type of legal research or advocacy and might be interested in having help from a law student this summer?

    I really appreciate any help you can offer!

    try places like Sierra Club, Audobon, Nature Conservancy, Trust for Public Land or look around for grassroots organizations that band together to fight a proposed development project (though that might be a little too hot for the firm!)
