KAP was my first job out of law school and is a great launch pad for a career in law, policy, or politics. You will get placed in a libertarian or conservative organization in DC, get leadership training, benefits, and a competitive salary

Our 10-month associate program offers professionals the opportunity to gain real-world experience and have a lasting impact on the issues that matter most through paid, full-time work experience. You’ll take your skills to the next level with leadership and professional training and our exclusive curriculum on Market-Based Management®, the philosophy that built Koch Industries into one of the most successful private companies in the world.

Job Opportunity: Congressional Black Caucus Fellowship, April 22 Deadline


The Congressional Black Caucus Foundation, Inc. (CBCF) is currently recruiting fellows for our 2018 – 2020 Cohort! CBCF Fellows work across congressional and committee offices during their two-year tenure in D.C. During the first-year office placement, fellows gain invaluable experience as they assist in the development of legislative and public policy initiatives in CBC Member Offices. During the second half of the program, fellows transition to a congressional committee. The committee placement complements their experience in a member’s office and provides the fellows with a full view of the legislative process.

Job Opportunity: Municipal Art Society of New York, Ralph C. Menapace Fellowship, May 1 Deadline


The fellowship gives recent law school graduates an opportunity to acquire first-hand experience in the legislative process, litigation, and advocacy before New York’s regulatory bodies. It provides the intensive learning experience of a judicial clerkship with a greater opportunity for independent, creative work in finding solutions to new and persistent problems in urban life.

The Menapace Fellow will work under the guidance of MAS’s General Counsel and our Law Committee, which comprises distinguished attorneys with expertise in preservation, zoning, land use and government. The Fellow will be involved in legislative work, litigation, and the preparation and delivery of testimony in proceedings before state and federal administrative bodies, as well as the City Planning Commission, Landmarks Preservation Commission, Board of Standards & Appeals, and the City Council. The Fellow will also serve as in-house counsel, assisting in corporate and non-profit law matters for the MAS.

The Fellow’s term, to commence in summer 2018, will run for a mandatory two-year period. The Fellowship is a salaried position, commensurate with a judicial clerkship, and standard MAS benefits. The Fellow will work with staff in the MAS office at 488 Madison Avenue in Manhattan. Interested candidates should submit a cover letter indicating the basis of their interest, a resume, legal writing sample (no longer than ten pages), and transcript by May 1, 2018 to Robert Libbey, Municipal Art Society, 488 Madison Avenue, 1900, New York, New York, 10022.
