Undergraduate internship program


Long hours, naught for pay /
Wouldn't have it another way ...

Full-time and part-time internships are available during summer and the academic year. Interns have the chance to do research, write op-eds, spin the media, and perform other important tasks while working with some of the best lawyers in Washington.

Sound appealing? Send your resume to the attention of Terry Pell, preferably by January 31.
