2017 Summer Judicial Internship Project for Law Students

The 2017 application cycle is now closed. Please check back next year!

The Summer Judicial Internship Diversity Project is a collaboration between the Judicial Resources Committee of the United Stated Judicial Conference and Just the Beginning – A Pipeline Organization (JRC-JTB). The Project’s goal is to provide summer judicial internships for law students from communities underrepresented in the legal profession.  Operating nationally since 2011, the JRC-JTB Project has placed nearly 300 law students in successful internships to date.  Over 100 judges have participated in our efforts and look to the JRC-JTB Project for summer internship candidates.  Fifteen JRC-JTB intern alumni have secured post-graduate judicial clerkships.  The Project is national in scope and will place about 100 students as judicial interns in federal appellate, district, bankruptcy, magistrate and select state appellate 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.
