February 2: Deadline for Vietnamese American Bar Association of Washington (VABAW) Law Student Clerkship Program in Vietnam

The Vietnamese American Bar Association of Washington (VABAW) is accepting applications for its national law student clerkship program.  VABAW’s Hong Duc Clerkship provides a law student with the opportunity to clerk at an international law firm in Vietnam for summer 2009.  The Clerkship Recipient has the unique opportunity to learn about the local cultures and customs firsthand while living in Vietnam and to learn about international and comparative law by working at a major law firm.  The Clerkship will award up to a total of $5,000, with approximately $2,000 applied to a round-trip airfare ticket to Vietnam and a maximum of $1,000 for each month of the Clerkship paid directly to the Clerkship Recipient for living expenses.  The Clerkship Recipient is matched with one of the following participating law firms: Baker & McKenzie; Duane Morris LLP; Fraser Law Company; Lovells; Mayer Brown JSM; Tilleke & Gibbins; and VILAF-Hong Duc.  

The participating law firm will provide the Clerkship recipient with meaningful legal work, including but not limited to conducting legal research, preparing legal documents, and other related legal work.  The Clerkship program was not created to provide long-term, post-law-school graduation employment for the Clerkship Recipient. However, the participating law firm has discretion to review such option and extend such employment to the Clerkship Recipient directly. Because VABAW fully funds the Clerkship, the law firm is prohibited from paying the Clerkship Recipient any additional stipend for summer 2009 (excluding complimentary social meals, law firm summer retreat activities, etc.).  The Clerkship Recipient is also not allowed to split his/her summer.  

Applicants will be evaluated by VABAW based upon the following criteria: (1) overall academic background; (2) community service involvement; (3) professional interests; (4) communication skills; (5) personal statement; (6) references; (7) writing abilities; (8) resume; (9) connection to Washington state;  (10) connection to or interest in the Vietnamese American community; and (11) interview (for out of state applicants, VABAW will arrange for a telephonic or video interview).  All application materials must be received by February 2, 2009, by 5 pm (PST).  Application materials may be submitted in one of two ways:

1) By hard copy (postal or express mail only; no personal deliveries will be accepted) to Thuy Nguyen-Leeper, 1015 Third Avenue, Floor 12, Seattle, WA 98104; or

Department of Justice Volunteer Legal Internship Opportunities for Spring and Summer 2009

The Department of Justice offers approximately 1,800 volunteer internships each year. Approximately 1000 are available during the summer; with the remaining 800 offered during the academic year.

First-year (second-semester), second-year and third-year law students are eligible to apply at any time. First-year, first-semester law students may apply after December 1 for internships the following summer. The Department follows the National Association of Law Placement guidelines that prohibit employer contact with first-year (first-semester) students regarding summer employment prior to that date. Law students may work in volunteer positions only while attending law school. Law school graduation terminates eligibility, except for graduate law students enrolled at least half time and who are not practicing law. Part-time and joint-degree law students may apply provided they meet eligibility requirements.

How to Apply: The Department publishes detailed information about volunteer opportunities and announces upcoming vacancies for specific offices in late summer (for internships during the academic year) and in December (for summer internships). Each participating office conducts its internship program independently and has its own internal deadlines. Students should apply separately to each office in which they have an interest. Offices typically request a resume and a law school transcript. Application requirements vary and are outlined in the "Qualifications" section of each announcement. Some organizations request a writing sample, a cover letter listing times and dates of availability, and references. For more information, visit OARM's website at http://www.usdoj.gov/oarm/arm/int/legalinternjq.htm.

 

Public Interest Law Initiative (PILI) Summer Internships

Each year, PILI offers over 40 public interest law internships that provide excellent legal training and experience for first or second  year law students.  Interns work at one of PILI's affiliated public interest law agencies in Chicago.  PILI raises the money to fund the internships and then issues grants to its eligible host agencies.  The agencies, in turn, pay their Interns directly.   PILI ensures quality supervision by experienced lawyers at its agencies, and provides a lunch-time educational seminar program.  The Internship program encourages law students to work at --and learn about-- legal institutions that serve the public interest, and engenders a life-long commitment to public interest law and pro bono work.

PILI sponsors a Summer Internship Program for first and second year law students.  The Summer Internship program is open to law students from across the country. Each summer, PILI funds dozens of internships at public interest law agencies in the Chicago metropolitan area. Agencies hosting Summer Interns receive $5,000 to pay an Intern for 10 full-time weeks of work. 

2Ls may apply starting October 15th, 1Ls may apply beginning December 1st. For more information on how to apply, visit http://pili-law.org/HowtoApplyforInternships.htm.

Federal Communications Bar Association (FCBA) Foundation is Accepting Applications for Funding of Unpaid Legal Internships at Government Agencies

The Federal Communications Bar Association (FCBA) will award stipends to law students from its Chairman Robert E. Lee Scholarship and Internship Fund. In 2009, the Foundation will award at least five $5,000 stipends to law students employed as unpaid summer interns in positions with the FCC and other government agencies or entities with a connection to the communications industry (i.e., broadcasting, cable television, telephony, satellite, wireless, and information technology).

In addition, the Foundation will select one outstanding intern among those chosen to receive an additional stipend of $600 for the summer—the “Max Paglin Award.”  Mr. Paglin was the former General Counsel and Executive Director of the FCC, and the founder of the Golden Jubilee Commission on Telecommunications, which compiled a definitive legislative history of the Communications Act.

Applicants will be selected on the basis of: (1) a demonstrated interest in the communications field, (2) having secured or having pending, an unpaid summer position (internship) for at least 8 weeks in communications with a government agency, (3) dependence on financial assistance in order to accept the unpaid internship in a government agency or entity involved in communications; and, (4) community activities.  To the extent a recipient receives unanticipated funding for the unpaid internship, the FCBA Foundation’s general policy is to reduce its scholarship awards by any amount that a recipient’s total funding (including all sources) for the internship would otherwise exceed $7,000.

Applications for a Lee Fund scholarship should be submitted to Kerry Loughney, FCBA Foundation, 1020 19th Street, N.W., Suite 325, Washington, D.C. 20036, by Friday, March 6, 2009.  Applicants may be asked to interview with members of the Foundation Board; interviews may be conducted by telephone.  Winners will be notified by Friday, April 17, 2009. For an application please go to www.fcba.org.

Job Fairs


February 7 : Midwest Public Interest Law Career Conference (MPILCC)

MPILCC, the Midwest Public Interest Law Career Conference, is an opportunity to meet and interview with Chicago and Midwest-area public interest organizations. The annual conference is coordinated by a coalition of Chicago area law school career service offices, of which Chicago-Kent is a part. Last year, over 100 students from Chicago-Kent participated, as well as 40 government and public interest agencies.

This year’s conference will be held on Saturday, February 7, 2009 at Northwestern’s Law School Campus (located in downtown Chicago). The conference offers students the opportunity to interview for summer law clerk positions and entry-level attorney positions. Most of the summer positions are unpaid or invite outside funding. In addition, you can meet with representatives from public interest and government organizations during “table talk.” Table talk is a good way to become familiar with a wide variety of public interest and government employers. You can pass out your resume, ask about internships, both in the summer and during the school year, and find out about post-graduation opportunities. Table talk is from 9am-12pm and is one of the most important periods of time during which students can make valuable connections.

If you do not receive any interviews, or you did not register in advance for the conference, you can still attend and meet many of the employers through table talk. You can also show up at the conference early and try to receive an interview on the day of the conference, because people who don’t check in at the conference on time, lose their interview slots, and their slots are filled by the people who arrive early. For those of you who receive interviews ahead of time, be sure to arrive on time or you will lose your interviews!  Visit the MPILCC website at www.mpilcc.org for all conference details and attend the special workshop session on “Preparing for MPILCC” which is being held on Tuesday, January 27 at noon, Room C40.

If you are interested in a public interest or government legal position in the Chicago area, you are encouraged to attend this conference. If you are interested in government or public interest opportunities outside of Chicago, you should consider attending the annual Equal Justice Works Conference in Washington DC, held every October. If you have question, contact Michelle Vodenik.
