Democracy in Action

Law School Democrats of America connects law students with state parties, campaigns, and grassroots mobilization efforts around the country that need voter protection support, research into local voting laws, and “get out the vote” (GOTV) efforts. As just a few examples, LSDA volunteers have researched the hiring and firing of impartial election administrators and assisted a national organization with a state-by-state voting manual project. In addition to the listings on this page, we send out new opportunities regularly through our LSDA newsletter, so make sure you’re signed up!

We were proud to place a Voter Protection Fellow with the Kentucky Democratic Party in 2023. Stay tuned for our 2024 opportunities!
