We are now accepting applications for the 2022 Judicial Intern Opportunity Program. The application period for this year’s internships closes on January 7, 2022. In addition to our current cities, we will be expanding the program to include internships in Salt Lake City, UT.

Deadline is January 7, 2022.

The mission of JIOP is to provide judicial internships to first- and second-year law students who are members of racial and ethnic groups traditionally underrepresented in the profession. The program also provides opportunities to students with disabilities, women, students who are economically disadvantaged, and students who identify as LGBTQ+.

Internships are available in several locations in California, Illinois and Texas. In addition, we offer internships in the following metropolitan areas: Phoenix, AZ; Washington, D.C.; Miami, FL; New York, NY; Philadelphia, PA; Salt Lake City, UT and Seattle, WA.

Students may indicate geographic preferences on their applications but may not request specific judges or courts.

Interns are required to work full-time (32 hours/week) for a minimum of six weeks and will receive an award of $2,000.

Internships for students with a focus on intellectual property law will be offered in Chicago, Los Angeles, Miami, New York, Texas, San Francisco and Washington, D.C. These specialized spots are limited, and any student applying with a request for specialization will also be considered for general litigation internships

The deadline to apply is January 7, 2022
