The House Committee on the Judiciary’s democratic staff is seeking interns for the spring of 2023.
This internship program offers undergraduate students, law students, graduate students, and recent graduates an opportunity to experience the operation of a congressional committee firsthand and learn about the important role that our Committee plays in the legislative process. The Judiciary Committee has jurisdiction over a wide range of legislative and oversight issues, including oversight of the U.S. Department of Justice, constitutional law, federal criminal law, voting rights, immigration and naturalization, and antitrust law.
Interns work closely with committee staff, including subcommittee staff and/or the oversight team, on a range of issues. This internship is based in Washington, DC with both full-time and part-time options.
Due to the large volume of applicants we receive, only those applicants who are offered interviews will be contacted by the Committee. No phone calls or emails please. Thank you.
Intern assignments will vary depending on the work of the Judiciary Committee each semester. Examples of potential responsibilities include:
•Researching policy issues under the committee’s jurisdiction
•Conducting legal research
•Attending briefings and hearings on the Hill
•Supporting committee counsels
•Supporting committee clerks and professional staff members
•Providing administrative support, including answering calls, delivering correspondence, and setting up the hearing room.
