Sample cover letter for Internship position at Immigration Law Firm




My name is Ann Summers and I am a second year student at Charlotte School of

Law. I am writing to apply for the position of legal intern at your organization in Nashville,

Tennessee between July and December of 2016. I would welcome an opportunity to intern at

your office due to my strong commitment to serving underrepresented communities and

immigration law.

I have been grateful for a number of opportunities to develop practical skills in

immigration law. In the past year I have spent the past year working specifically on

asylum and refugee cases with clients from all over the globe in both a firm and legal

clinic setting. These opportunities have helped me develop an understanding of the

necessity of good communication and attention to detail, as well as the necessary skillset

to contribute in a setting like your organization.

As the daughter of a Filipina immigrant I have been immersed in the experiences and

hardships of the immigrant community since a young. Because of that experience, I

began to delve into international nonprofit work in college, where I studied in

International Relations and provided a senior thesis on the effects of human trafficking in

third world countries, where communities are most vulnerable. Additionally, I worked as

volunteer coordinator for a medical nonprofit that served impoverished people in rural

villages abroad and took a course on intercultural communication at a university in

Shanghai, China to learn how to become a better communicator with people from all

around the globe.

I believe my past experiences, leadership ability, and academic background have

provided me a strong toolset that will enable me to contribute to your organization as a

legal intern.

I have enclosed my resume. If you have further questions for me, please feel free to

contact me by e-mail at or by phone at no. I look

forward to hearing from you.
