DOJ Honors after 1L

Postby Anonymous User » Thu Apr 28, 2011 3:24 pm

Is this unheard of? I know it's probably pretty competitive, but I'm really set on trying to find something paid for 1L summer to save some money (who isn't, I guess...). Does anyone on TLS have experience with a paid gig for the DOJ after 1L?

I don't think there is anything for 1L summer paid DOJ. They have competitive unpaid positions and they do have this for 2L summer though:

On that page it says that anyone with at least 1 semester of law school is eligible to apply. Though it does also say that most individuals selected will have completed 2L by the time they start.

It says you need to have completed 1 semester by the application deadline. Application deadline to do it Summer 2011 is September 7, 2010.

Agreed. There are no paid positions for post-1L at DOJ. The best you can do is attend a school with a good public interest stipend for the summer so you at least don't add more debt over summer.
