U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission
The Office of General Counsel, the litigation arm of the EEOC, is composed of four units, headquartered in Washington.
Over the past several years, our interns have researched and drafted memoranda on various legal issues for cases in active litigation, including cases pending before the United States Supreme Court; evaluated lower court cases for possible amicus participation; evaluated data pursuant to the investigation of alleged systemic discrimination; and participated in settlement conferences. Interns may also attend the moot court arguments that our appellate attorneys do in preparing for oral argument in the courts of appeals.
We anticipate similar work this summer. Thus, applicants must have strong analytical, research and writing skills, and should have an interest in discrimination, civil rights and/or public interest law. To apply, please e-mail a cover letter, resume, and short writing sample to: email@example.com. The cover letter should be addressed to:
