The Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC), one of
the world's most effective environmental organizations, is seeking 1-2
China Summer Legal Interns to work in its Beijing office. NRDC hires
passionate students who possess the intelligence, skill,

exchange for their hard work, our interns will have an opportunity to
play an active role on the frontlines of the environmental movement in
China.

China Summer Legal Interns will work with the staff of NRDC's China
Environmental Law Project to carry out research and implement

typically been able to secure funding through their schools or other

some travel within China.
