Law School Students

Each school sets its own requirements for externships, usually requiring a minimum number of hours per semester.

Students should contact their law school internship/externship or career services program to learn about the school’s requirements including application deadlines before contacting CLSMF.

Pre-Law Students

CLSMF offers a wide range of options for volunteer opportunities as well as externships for course credit or service learning.  The minimum number of hours for an internship is 100 hours during a semester or four-month period. Can’t commit to 100 hours a semester or a four-month period?  Send us an email anyways as we regularly have special events, legal clinics, and other tasks suitable for ad hoc volunteers.   

Community Members

Community members, be they students, paralegals, other non-legal professionals, or lay-persons, are encouraged to inquire about our volunteer opportunities. CLSMF loves volunteers and we can’t do our work without them. Here at CLSMF, we value eagerness to help us in our mission to deliver top quality legal services in Central Florida, flexibility in accepting work assignments, and a dose of humor and creativity to make it all come together. In most cases prior experience is not necessary and we will train you in the relevant law and procedure. CLSMF utilizes volunteers during traditional business hours.
