Law firms in other cities will sometimes hold receptions for first-year students over Winter Break. The purpose of these receptions is for the law firms to introduce themselves and get to know you for the future – it does not necessarily mean they intend to hire any 1Ls for their 2012 summer class. You should view these receptions as networking opportunities, and take advantage of any that are of interest to you. The following is a list of firms hosting 1L receptions over the break. Contact information included where provided by the firm.
U.S. Department of Justice
Executive Office for Immigration Review
New York Immigration Court
The United States Department of Justice has openings for several legal interns with the New York Immigration Court for the Summer of 2012. All rising second and third year law students are eligible and encouraged to apply. Prior knowledge of immigration law is helpful, but not absolutely necessary. Strong research and writing skills are required.
Issues commonly before the Court include asylum eligibility, cancellation of removal and motions to reopen. The types of projects assigned to legal interns vary depending on the Court’s docket, and will entail:
* Research and preparation of memoranda on complex legal issues
* Drafting decisions on motions pending before the Court
* Drafting decisions on applications for relief from removal
This internship offers an excellent opportunity to develop research, writing and analytical skills. Legal interns will work under the supervision of the Court’s Attorney Advisors, but will also have interaction with individual Immigration Judges. Legal interns will have the opportunity to work at both the New York City and Varick Street Immigration Courts.
The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission's Summer Honors Law Program gives law and JD/MBA students the opportunity to become acquainted with the regulation of the securities markets and careers within the Commission.
