Education is central to the mission of the Lawyers' Committee. We actively work to inform the public about cultural heritage issues, raise the profile of cultural heritage law in our nation’s schools, and serve as a clearinghouse for employment and internship opportunities for law students. Learn more about our educational endeavors below.
Student Writing Competition in Cultural Heritage Law
The next Student Writing Competition in Cultural Heritage Law will be announced in March 2017. The First Place winner will receive a cash award of $1,000. If a tie occurs, the First Place winners will split the cash award. LCCHP reserves the right not to select a First Place winner if a majority of the judges so recommends. LCCHP may also award a Second Place prize of $500, at its discretion, if it determines that such a prize is appropriate.

Law School Survey
Guide to Internships and Externships
The Lawyers' Committee has compiled an extensive list of course offerings in cultural heritage law, which we intend to provide a primary resource for law students, those who are thinking of attending law school, and others who are interested in determining the extent and nature of the teaching of cultural heritage law in law schools today.

The Lawyers' Committee Guide to Cultural Heritage Preservation Internships and Externships contains information on numerous summer internship and school-term externship opportunities that are available to law students and recent graduates. In addition, some of these opportunities are also open to undergraduate and graduate students in non-legal programs. While we have done our best to ensure the guide's accuracy we recommend that users confirm all deadlines and other application procedures, since this information is subject to change.
The database is free to all members of the Lawyers' Committee. Access the Internship and Externship Guide (Members Only)
