Undergraduate Internships

“This internship surpassed all my expectations! The most rewarding part was being able to be immersed in the world of religious liberty and understand cases both from a legal and communications perspective. I know the connections and knowledge I gained are going to be extremely beneficial in the years to come.” -Maci, BYU

About Becket’s Undergraduate Internship Program 

Becket’s undergraduate internship program allows top communications, media arts, and pre-law students the chance to litigate high profile religious liberty cases in the court of public opinion. 

We equip our interns with the tools and experience needed to excel in their future career and to advance religious liberty in their chosen profession. We do this by teaching the legal and historical foundations of “religious liberty for all” and providing hands-on training in a fast-paced environment that allows interns to work alongside Becket’s diverse team of experts. Each intern will have the opportunity to work one-on-one with a Becket mentor to develop and execute a summer work plan and receive comprehensive feedback. 

Becket interns collaborate with the communications, legal, research, operations, and management teams to gain experience in all aspects of non-profit management while also developing subject-matter knowledge of religious freedom.
