Hola todos,

I'm currently a U.S. law student and researching potential legal internships in Latin America, preferably in Mexico. My ultimate goal is to move to Oaxaca with my husband, as we have family near the area.

However, it is particularly difficult to find internships online. I'm interested in general legal work serving both expats and mixed status families on both sides of the border. I'm also interested in serving historically marginalized groups, like women and/or indigenous communities. I'm willing to consider large organizations or smaller private practices, so long as there are at least two attorneys (this is an institutional requirement).

If anyone has any leads or contacts, it would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you!

Immigration law meets some of your objectives. The American Immigration Lawyers Association has a Latin America chapter, of which I am a member. I live in DF. Lots of firms in Mexico. See them at aila.org.

Alternatively, if you want to serve native Mexican communities, find firms in San Cristobal de las Casas in Chiapas. Call them. Tell them you will work for free for a year. Lots of activity there, including the recent assassination of a local reporter who wrote about Representative Gomez's cozy relationship with criminal gangs.
