The application process for the Summer Judicial Internship Diversity Project is approaching! The Project’s goal is to provide unpaid summer judicial internships for highly qualified minority, underrepresented, and economically disadvantaged law students. 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. Interns will have the opportunity to draft bench memoranda, judicial orders, and opinions on a variety of substantive matters, including motions to dismiss, motions for summary judgment, magistrate judge reports, and habeas corpus petitions. Applicants should possess strong research and writing skills and be prepared to handle the rigors of working in a federal court. Applicants who are hired must commit to attending two mandatory training workshops prior to the beginning of the internship, either in-person or via video conference and must be available to work full-time as unpaid intern for a minimum of six weeks.
Application information will be available here on November 20, 2012. The application deadline is 5:00 p.m. EST on Friday, January 4, 2013.
