Spring 2017 House Judiciary Committee Internship Opportunity

The House Judiciary Committee on Capitol Hill is currently seeking interns for the Majority Staff Office (i.e. the Republican Member supporting staff office).  The Spring Semester (Jan-April 2017) internship application deadline is quickly approaching! Please see the following link for more info: We would love to see all students apply!

Although the internship is unpaid, it allows flexible scheduling for our interns (comfortable with as little as 18 hours/week commitment, and as much as 40 hours/week is welcomed too), and offers invaluable insight to young adults who have an interest in civil service, particularly in relation to judicial matters. A little bit about our Committee’s intern program:

-For undergraduate students – our Committee will staff 2 interns year-round who are in their undergraduates years of study.  The students will work to assist our Full Committee office in duties to include: legislative research, oversight of Committee proceedings, office administration, and special projects as directed by full-time staff.

-For law students – our Committee will staff 5 interns year-round who are In law school.  Each student will be assigned to 1 of 5 subcommittees of our Office, and work to assist said subcommittee in: legal research, bill editing, extensive writing, preparing for and leading legislative meetings/proceedings, and special projects as directed by the small staffs of each subcommittee.

As the link above reflects, internship applications are due by end-of-the-day on Wednesday, Oct. 12. Please email all applications to John C. ManningIf interns make it through an initial review of applications, they will be contacted about setting a time for a phone interview later that week or the following week.  Intern slot selections will be made by the Chairman of the Committee by early November.

For additional information about the internship, please contact John C. Manning at
