The U.S. Government Accountability Office (GAO) is an independent, non-partisan agency in the legislative branch. As the “government’s watchdog,” GAO researches and investigates policy issues touching upon all aspects of the work of the federal government in order to assist Congress in carrying out its core Constitutional responsibilities—investigation of all areas in which Congress may legislate, evaluation of the use of taxpayer dollars, and oversight of the government’s programs and activities. GAO’s Legal Honors Program is designed to attract, develop, and retain the highest caliber of new attorneys. Annually, 5-10 Summer Associates are hired into the program with the possibility of permanent hire once they have completed the summer program successfully. We are looking for candidates that can demonstrate superior law school performance; participation in extracurricular activities in law school, especially law journals; membership in law student organizations and other self-initiated activities; and a demonstrated interest in public service.
The GAO will be interviewing 2L/3Es for its summer internship program on Monday, September 9, 2013. Students interested in interviewing with the GAO should submit their application materials in Symplicity by 5:00 on Monday, August 19.
