It's rare to find a summer 1L job that pays, but your school may offer grants for working Government or public interest. My school pays close to $4000 for the summer.
It's also very rare for large firms (like those on vault) to hire 1L interns at all. Big Law firms look for federal legal work or even research with professor for experience. They don't expect you to know everything about your job coming in 2L summer, but only that you know how to research and got plenty of experience doing so.
Legal counsel with US House would be good I would think...don't know much about it though...
