SLIP or VIP program. I thought SLIP finished awhile back.

Unless they've changed the terms, SLIP is a paid honors internship for 2L's and 3L's (pre-clerkship). All 1L positions and unpaid internships, during the summer or school year are under the VIP program. I'm not trying to be a dick, I'm just trying to figure out exactly what you're doing.

I'll second this (after I figured out what "VIP" stood for). SLIP is long over. There are still unpaid positions being filled, but those aren't SLIP.

They call it Summer Law Internship Program (not Honors program).

It's a summer internship with the USAO here.

I'm just going by what they are calling it.

I think there's a disconnect. DOJ SLIP does not place with local USAOs, does it? So whichever federal district this is probably calls their summer internship program SLIP, not to be confused with "SLIP."

I guess so. Anyway, it was nice. They were pleasant and informative.
