Job Opportunity: EEOC in Tampa, Deadline: ASAP
The Tampa Field Office of the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission is currently recruiting legal interns for the summer and we would love to speak with any Notre Dame students that are interested in working with us. The official job announcement is at: https://www.eeoc.gov/eeoc/jobs/intern-miami.cfm. However, students should feel free to reach out to me directly, Brandi Meredith, firstname.lastname@example.org, if they are interested in my office and I can answer any questions and direct their materials appropriately.
The Legal Unit is charged with the responsibility of assisting the Enforcement Unit on legal issues and with litigating individual and class employment discrimination cases in the federal courts on behalf of employees and job applicants: EEOC seeks law students with a commitment to public interest law and EEOC’s mission. We give preference to students with a demonstrated commitment to civil rights and/or who have completed course work in employment discrimination, employment law, evidence, or trial practice.
Law student interns assist with various aspects of litigation and litigation development. Assignments typically include legal research and writing relating to employment discrimination and general federal practice issues such as discovery, trial practice and evidence. Interns may also be involved with interviewing claimants, drafting discovery demands or responses, summarizing deposition testimony, attending depositions and court conferences, analyzing documents, using litigation support software, and assisting with outreach projects. Interns also assist attorneys and other EEOC staff with investigating and analyzing charges of discrimination before litigation.
