The Majority Staff of the House Judiciary Committee is seeking fall semester candidates for a legal internship.
Legal interns will hone legal writing skills, improve legal research aptitude, sharpen the ability to analyze and summarize legal arguments, gain an in-depth understanding of the legislative process, develop the ability to draft legislative language, acquire substantive legal knowledge of Judiciary Committee issues, and experience a professional work environment.
Interns receive a variety of tasks which may include writing legal memorandum on legislation; preparing questions, testimony, and summaries for Judiciary Committee hearings; help draft and analyze floor amendments; and drafting letters on legal issues.
Additionally, interns may attend and observe House and Senate debates, and attend lectures by the Congressional Research Service on legal research and parliamentary procedure.
