Legal Internship Summer 2022

About CAC

The Constitutional Accountability Center (CAC) is a nonprofit law firm, think tank, and action center dedicated to making real the progressive promise of our Constitution’s text, history, and values.  We work in our courts, through our government, and with legal scholars to preserve the rights and freedoms of all in America and to protect our judiciary from politics and special interests.

At CAC, we view the Constitution as an inherently progressive document—amended over the generations to become more just, equitable, and inclusive.  To make real the promises of our national charter, we must honor and celebrate different ideas, perspectives, and backgrounds, and especially the contributions of historically marginalized communities.  As an organization, we make every effort to live by these ideals and help create the conditions that will allow all individuals and communities to thrive.  We are committed to the recruitment, development, and retention of talented and diverse staff who believe in true justice and equality for all people.  CAC is an equal opportunity employer, and we particularly encourage people who identify as Black, Indigenous, Latino/Latina or Latinx, Asian American or Pacific Islander, and from other underrepresented communities to join us.
