Internship Opportunity at the Headquarters Immigration Court
The United States Department of Justice, Executive Office for Immigration Review, is seeking two law student interns to participate in an excellent internship opportunity during the Spring of 2012. Positions are available at the Headquarters Immigration Court (HQIC) in Falls Church, Virginia. The jurisdiction of the United States Immigration Courts includes all matters brought before the Court by the Department of Homeland Security. The immigration judges at HQIC preside over formal immigration hearings via video teleconferencing links to determine whether aliens are deportable, excludable, inadmissible or removable from the United States. In addition, the judges have jurisdiction to consider applications for various forms of discretionary and mandatory relief, including various waivers, adjustment of status, cancellation of removal, asylum, withholding of removal, and protection under the U.N. Convention Against Torture.
The internship will entail in-depth research and analysis of legal issues, as well as preparation of legal memoranda for the immigration judges. Interns will have opportunities to draft decisions that will be taken under advisement by an immigration judge. Interns can expect to complete assignments that may later be used as writing samples. In addition, they will be able to observe all types of matters brought before the Court. Although the internship is unpaid, academic credit may be obtained with the permission of the intern’s law school.
