Summer Judicial Internship Opportunities
The Judicial Resources Committee and Just The Beginning Foundation are pleased to announce the third annual Summer Judicial Internship Diversity Project. The Project is national in scope and will place 75 students as judicial interns in federal appellate, district, bankruptcy, and magistrate judges' chambers across the country.
Applicants should submit the following materials: (1) a cover letter; (2) a resume; (3) a law school transcript; (4) a writing sample (no more than 10 pages in length); (5) a list of three references; and (6) a completed geographical preference form with locational ranking (available HERE). At present this is an unpaid internship, so applicants are encouraged to seek law school or non-profit funding.
The American Bar Association Section of Litigation will began accepting applications for its Summer 2013 Judicial Intern Opportunity Program on November 1st for second-year law students. Applications for first-year law students will be accepted December 1st, in accordance with NALP guidelines. The program is a full-time (32 hours per week), six-week minimum, summer internship program open to all first-or second-year diverse law students.
Participating judges are located throughout the country. Students may indicate geographic location preferences on their applications, but may not request particular judges or courts. Interns will receive an award of $1,500. The deadline is Friday, January 4, 2013. Click HERE for more information.
