The Law and Policy Section (LPS) advises and assists the Assistant Attorney General on legal and policy issues.  Working with the Office of Legislative Affairs, LPS coordinates the Environment and Natural Resources Division's legislative program.  LPS also represents the Department of Justice on interagency groups of a variety of issues that relate to the mission of the Division.  LPS also litigates amicus cases and undertakes other specially assigned litigation projects at the trial and appellate levels. Other duties include monitoring citizen suits; responding to citizen mail, congressional, and FOIA requests; and serving as the Division's ethics officers.  LPS attorneys also coordinate the Division's activities on international environmental matters and environmental justice matters.

Duties of the unpaid undergraduate intern position include: attending congressional hearings and reporting on environmental legislation; researching legal and policy issues; and providing support for the section's amicus litigation. 

Applicants must be U.S. citizens, pass a mandatory background check, and be willing to commit to about 30 hours per week.  Applicants should be either enrolled as undergraduates during the internship, or planning on returning to their school in the time period following the conclusion of the internship. 

Applications must be received no later than 11:59pm on October 5, 2016.  The internship will run roughly from the beginning of January to May 2016 (dates flexible).  We will also consider applications from students on the quarter system (i.e., available from December to March or March through June) on a case-by-case basis.  Please specify in your cover letter what dates and what hours you are available.
