Application Deadline: 01/31/2012
The Office of Regional Counsel, U. S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), Region III, an equal opportunity employer, has approximately ten (10) volunteer clerkship positions available during the summer, for first- and second-year students. We will consider students who qualify for work-study funds, but only where EPA is not required to contribute financially to the work-study program. Summer law clerks will be expected to undertake a variety of tasks, which will include complex research projects and the drafting of legal documents under the supervision of staff attorneys in the Office of Regional Counsel. Additionally, clerks will be encouraged to accompany staff attorneys to client meetings, negotiating sessions, trials, hearings, and depositions.
The 2012 summer program will run from May 30 to August 10.
Although summer clerkships are not salaried positions, the selection process is quite competitive. Qualified candidates should have strong academic credentials and excellent legal research and writing skills. Previous experience or demonstrated interest in environmental or administrative law is helpful, but not required for prospective law clerks. All qualified applicants are encouraged to apply.
