Neither had I until I read about the summer 2012 Judicial Intern Opportunity Program sponsored by the American Bar Association Section of Litigation. This program is a full-time, six-week minimum, summer internship program open to all first- or second-year minority and/or economically disadvantaged law students. It is a wonderful program, and it is customary for several Florida Coastal students to be selected for one of these internships each year.
The ABA begins accepting applications for second-year students on November 1, and December 1 for first-year students. The deadline for applying is January 6, 2012, but the program has “rolling” admission so applying early will definitely help you. And remember, the first 500 applicants will be guaranteed at least one interview! This is pretty amazing!
Selected students are given an opportunity to intern for six weeks or more during the summer with a participating state or federal judge in participating cities. Participating judges are from Illinois; Texas; Miami, FL; Phoenix, AZ; Washington, DC; Philadelphia, PA: Seattle, WA; Los Angeles and San Francisco, CA. Students selected to the program will receive an award of $1,500. The award is intended to be reimbursement of some of the expenses associated with the placement.
Internship opportunities were offered to 191 minority and/or economically disadvantaged law students last year. Please see this year’s flyer, program description, and frequently asked questions page. Students wanting to apply to this year’s program can begin the process by accessing the program application, eligibility requirements, specific information on locations and all of the above information on the program website: www.ambar.org/jiop.

In an effort to encourage minorities to apply for clerkships, several federal judges will be conducting interviews on September 17, 2011 to fill full-time positions. The deadline to apply is January 9, 2012. This step is Just The Beginning.
