Profile

Legal Summer Internship The intern will work with Trial Attorneys engaged in litigation against employers for violations of Title VII, the ADEA and the ADA. This work will mostly be legal research and writing. Students may assist in interviewing claimants or witnesses, help prepare discovery responses based on those interviews, or help prepare claimants or witnesses for deposition. Students may also be asked to abstract depositions and develop fact responses for defending against motions for summary judgment. Students may also work with enforcement staff involved in investigating Charges of Discrimination. Depending on availability and schedules, students will sit it on intake interviews, mediation sessions, Administrative Hearings, court hearings on routine and contested matters, and, sometimes, trials. Students will also have opportunities to observe depositions. When possible, the students are encouraged to observe activities that build upon work they have performed. For example, if a student has provided research on a motion, they are encouraged to attend court when the motion is heard. Candidates will be evaluated based on academic performance, demonstrated research and writing skills, and interest in furthering the mission of the agency.
