Andrew S. Cray Law Fellowships, Legal Internships, and Post-Graduate Legal Fellowships

As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, regrettably, we will not be able to accommodate any interns or fellows during the summer of 2020.  As we get closer to the fall, we will reassess the situation in light of the recommendations from the Center for Disease Control, the District of Columbia Health Department and other public health officials.

NCTE offers legal internships for law students year-round and post-graduate legal fellowships for recent law graduates. Summer legal interns are Andrew S. Cray Law Fellows, named in memory of trans health advocate Andrew Cray.
We welcome applications from students currently enrolled in law school or recent graduates. Andrew Cray Law Fellowships are awarded for summer, full-time interns, and come with a stipend to cover living expenses. Legal interns during the academic year are generally unpaid unless they are working full-time. NCTE will work with a student's university to assure academic credit is received if eligible for credit. Post-graduate fellows are encouraged to bring their own funding from their law school or other granting organization. NCTE is happy to work with schools so that fellows or interns can receive academic credit.
  • Strong research and writing skills are absolutely critical
  • Ability to excel at working both independently and collaboratively
  • A commitment to transgender equality
  • Demonstrated interest in transgender, LGBT, health care, privacy, civil rights or related issues a plus

Andrew S. Cray Law Fellows work out of our national office in Washington, DC during regular business hours over the summer for 40 hours per week, Monday – Friday.

Spring/Fall Legal Interns work out of our national office in Washington, DC during regular business hours for at least 12 hours per week. Full-time legal interns are also desired for Spring and Fall semesters.
