Subject: Fwd: Summer internship: African Amer. law or collegestudent...

FYI: If you know of anyone interested, please pass it on.

I'm working for the Democrats on the House Judiciary Committee on
Capitol Hill.

I'm trying to solicit some internship applications for this summer from
African Americans - law students or college students. If you know any
students who might be interested for this summer (I know its super late
in the game for this) please have them contact me. Of course we take
applications from anyone. But we have 7 black lawyers on staff and have
hardly had a single black intern over the last 3 years so we've raised
that concern with our boss and we're trying to find some candidates.
We would also welcome any law graduates of course.

Our work involves writing letters, speeches, legal/policy memos and
managing legislation on a wide range of issues including: telecom,
antitrust, civil rights, immigration, refugees and asylum, tort reform
(medical malpractice), federal courts (administrative and legislation
stripping courts of jurisdiction), constitutional issues (abortion, stem

cell research, church and state issues), bankruptcy, homeland security,
border security, terrorism, torture and detention, intellectual
property, internet law and regulation, crime, and oversight of DOJ, FBI,

DHS among other things. There is no pay, of course, this being Capitol
Hill. Interns can basically make their own schedule. We take interns
year round.

I appreciate any help you can offer. And please go ahead and send this
to anyone you think appropriate.

Thank you!

:o  OMG!!!  Sands, thanks.  I am so glad you posted this.  I can't do it this summer but it is the best news on Earth to here they have a minority shortage, and am hoping they have one next year for me!  That would be my DREAM 1L summer job.

Yeah that seems like it would fit you like a glove.  Holler at them anyway and see what they say about next year.

I think we should go ahead and expand it for now, for current law students.  I don't think we have enough people to do a thread for each year. But if we end up with enough people to do a thread for each year, then we can just create new threads then.  My two cents.

As for that summer internship . . .if you had posted it a month ago I would be all over it, but right now, I don't have the money to do it without pay.  :-\

I know, Sands. We are 2L's.  Don't know if we need our own thread yet, though. What do you think?  :)  First questions would be what did you do this summer and what courses are you taking in the fall?  Or probably a better question: How have you changed over the past year--did you ever expect to be the person that you are now?

And Sands, it is hard to let go of the 1L title. . .1L was the longest,  hardest year of life (thus far).  When something has shaped your identity for a year, its hard to let go. . . .Sort of.  ;)

Girl you ain't never lied!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I think Lawyers have a common bond among themselves BECAUSE no matter where they went to school, they all went through the hazing ritual of 1L.

But you bring up a good point, I was thinking of whether we keep this board specifically for the 1L's or expand it to cover all current law students, even though we dont' have any active 3L posters (and technically no 1L posters!). I'm thinking expand it. What do you think?

you can try and see if the dorms at gw or gtown are open. and i would start with craigslist, they usually have sublet type stuff like they do in nyc, like a person going on vacation who'll let you live in their house for a month or whatever. i got that email a couple of weeks ago but didn't think about posting it. you should probably email them asap and see if they've been able to fill the position...

There's a lot of places you can sub-lease in DC for the summer, when I interned at the WH, a lot of the interns roomed in the dorms at GW.

or American University...AU is probably cheaper as it isn't in the heart of downtown
