Students who seek summer public interest internships in non-profit and government agencies will find that it is quite common for these positions to be unpaid--though fortunately, there are a number of school sponsored and outside programs that offer law students a stipend to fund their summer work.
The Equal Justice Foundation is a student group which partners with Georgetown to offer guaranteed summer funding to all 1L, 2L, and 3E Georgetown Law students that work for eligible public sector employers.

In addition to EJF, Georgetown students can take advantage of several external (non-Georgetown) funding programs that provide stipends to students once they have secured an unpaid summer internship and programs that provide a stipend for their internship programs. These programs run the gamut from location based to issue based funding.
