Summer 2015 Internship
The Staff Attorney’s Office for the Second Circuit Court of Appeals is accepting applications from second-year law students for summer internships in 2015.
The office handles the court’s immigration docket, which principally involves challenges to the denial of applications for asylum, withholding of removal, or relief under the Convention Against Torture, as well as issues relating to the immigration consequences of criminal convictions. The office also handles all pro se appeals and motions, counseled motions, and successive petitions for habeas corpus relief. The pro se appeals frequently raise issues of prisoners’ rights, civil procedure, constitutional law, employment discrimination and social security.
An applicant must be a second-year student at an ABA-accredited law school seeking an internship for the summer preceding his or her third year (or the equivalent for students in non-traditional programs). A successful applicant will have outstanding academic credentials, and superior skills in analysis, research, writing, and editing.
