Volunteering at CELA

Volunteering, Student Internships, and Summer Positions

CELA has limited capacity to take on unpaid volunteers. However, we do periodically take on student internships, where students require a work placement as a portion of university or college courses. CELA’s legal team enjoys mentoring highly motivated, self-directed individuals with a strong background in environmental law, academic research, and community development.

Please submit a cover letter and résumé via email to admin @ cela.ca.

CELA occasionally obtains funding for summer students. Any openings are posted in our Media Releases and Job Opportunities areas, likely in late winter or early spring.

For additional options for working in the areas of social justice and poverty law, see Careers at Legal Aid Ontario for postings by all LAO community legal clinics. The LAO site may include postings for articling students, counsel, paralegals, community legal workers and administrative assistants. You may also wish to view the Careers Page of the Law Society of Ontario website.
