The White House Council on Environmental Quality has a legal internship opening for this summer (minimum 8 weeks, June-August), and is accepting applications from highly motivated rising 2Ls and 3Ls on a rolling basis.
Clerks are supervised by CEQ’s Office of the General Counsel, and provide critical research and writing assistance to both legal and policy staff on a variety of matters pertinent to CEQ’s functions, including oversight of the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA). Through CEQ’s participation in policy processes across the Federal government, clerks have the opportunity to perform diverse, substantive legal work, including: (1) Drafting memoranda on environment, energy, natural resources, and general law issues; (2) Tracking Federal agency actions on environmental issues; (3) Attending interagency working group meetings; and (4) Assisting with responses to Freedom of Information Act requests and other inquiries regarding CEQ’s activities. Clerks also have the opportunity to help advise CEQ’s policy teams on legal issues, and to analyze significant draft regulations through CEQ’s participation in the interagency regulatory review process under Executive Order 12866.
