Internships

The House Committee on the Judiciary’s staff 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 nationalization, and antitrust law.

The Committee strives to ensure that our internship class reflects the diversity of the country’s population; candidates from minority backgrounds are strongly encouraged to apply. The Committee does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, religion, sex (including marital or parental status, sexual orientation, and gender identity), disability, age, or national origin.

Due to the large volume of applicants we receive, only those applicants who are offered interviews will be contacted by the Committee. 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
  • Drafting memos
  • Supporting committee counsels
  • Supporting committee clerks and professional staff members
  • Providing administrative support, including answering calls, delivering correspondence, and setting up the hearing room.
