The American Bar Association’s Section of Litigation has announced its Summer 2014 Judicial Intern Opportunity Program. The mission of the Judicial Intern Opportunity Program is to provide opportunities to students who are members of racial and ethnic groups that are traditionally underrepresented in the profession. The program also provides opportunities to students with disabilities, students who are economically disadvantaged and students who identify themselves as LGBT.
The program is a summer internship program open to all first- or second-year diverse law students. Selected students are given an opportunity to intern for six weeks or more during the summer with a participating state or federal judge. The program offers a $2,000 award to each selected student. Students can also elect law school credit or coordinate their award with their work/student financial aid.
Applications will begin accepting applications for second-year students on November 4 and December 1 for first-year students. Applications must be submitted by January 10, 2014.
