Organization Overview

For four decades, the Environmental Law Institute (ELI) has played a pivotal role in shaping the fields of environmental law, policy, and management, both domestically and internationally. For more information on the Institute, visit


ELI seeks individuals to support the research and publications departments of the Institute. Interns work directly with staff attorneys, editors, scientists, and economists on a variety of projects. Substantive areas of focus include: land use policy, public participation in environmental regulation, biodiversity, air quality, public health, hazardous waste and brownfields, wetlands and watershed policy, international environmental policy, armed conflict and the environment, environmental management systems, and environmental enforcement.


Interns conduct library and internet research, attend and report on outside events, analyze, edit, and synthesize scholarly material, assist with preparation for environmental training courses, and perform various administrative tasks. ELI integrates interns into the day-to-day operations of the Institute, and interns are encouraged to attend ELI policy events and meetings.


Candidates should possess superior research, writing, and interpersonal communication skills, as well as a strong desire to gain knowledge of the environmental field. A strong academic background is required, but specific environmental experience is not mandatory. Applicants must have completed freshman year of college.
