Summer Judicial Internship Diversity Project for Law Students


Applications for our 2019 SJID Project have closed.


The Judicial Resources Committee of the United States Judicial Conference and Just The Beginning – A Pipeline Organization are pleased to host annual Summer Judicial Internship Diversity Project (“Project”). The Project’s goal is to provide underrepresented law students summer judicial internships in the chambers of federal and state appellate judges, federal district judges, and federal bankruptcy and magistrate judges. The Project is national in scope and seeks to place approximately 100 law students as judicial interns 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. Applicants should possess strong research and writing skills and be prepared to handle the rigors of working in a court.
