This week’s 2L Weekly Docket features paid summer internship opportunities with the NRDC and DOJ, an upcoming DOJ webinar to help you optimize your summer applications, and an invitation to the ABA Diversity in the Judiciary panel in Chicago in August.
Paid Summer Legal Internship: NRDC, October 19 Deadline but interviews start in August
NRDC’s summer legal interns may participate in writing briefs, drafting complaints, preparing legal analyses, obtaining affidavits, investigating violations of environmental laws, developing policy advocacy campaigns, and drafting white papers and comments for submission to Congressional committees and administrative agencies. NRDC hires passionate students who possess the intelligence, skill, self-confidence, and maturity to take on substantial responsibility. Our interns play an active role on the frontlines of the environmental movement. Over the course of a summer, an NRDC intern will typically work on a variety of projects and amass experience that he or she could not obtain anywhere else.
NRDC encourages successful applicants to secure funding from scholarships or their law schools, but such funding is not a factor in selecting interns. NRDC will supplement outside funding to ensure successful applicants receive at least $6,000 for the 10-week summer internship.
Hiring will be conducted on a rolling basis, with applications being reviewed and interviews being scheduled starting in early August. The deadline to submit an application is October 19, 2018 (2Ls).
Offers will be made on a rolling basis; we strongly encourage you to apply early.
