These positions are unpaid.  Although in limited circumstances we may be able to help exceptionally strong candidates identify funding sources, applicants must ordinarily secure external funding on their own. Your law school, the National Lawyers Guild, and social justice-oriented fellowship programs are all good places to begin the process.
