The American Bar Association Section of Litigation is pleased to announce its summer 2012 Judicial Intern Opportunity Program. The program is a full-time, six-week minimum, summer internship program open to all first- or second-year minority law students. We begin accepting applications for second-year students: November 1, and December 1 for first-year students. The deadline for applying is January 6, 2012.
Selected students are given an opportunity to intern for six weeks or more during the summer with a participating state or federal judge in participating cities. Participating judges are from Illinois; Texas; Miami, FL; Phoenix, AZ; Washington, DC; Philadelphia, PA: Seattle, WA; Los Angeles and San Francisco, CA. Students selected to the program will receive an award of $1,500. The award is intended to be reimbursement of some of the expenses associated with the placement.
