According to the blog Litination, funding has so dried up at many public interest employers that they've had to get creative in raising money to fund the good work they do. And knowing the desperation of some law students to get some valuable summer experience on their resumes now that law firm summer associate programs have gone the way of analog television, they are charging students up to $250.00 per week for the privilege of serving as an intern. But the fun doesn't stop there - summer interns may have to pay to use the Internet, the toilets, and even drink the coffee. Office supplies? Are you kidding - it's BYOB, baby!
I kid you not. Read the story for yourself here.
