Judicial Intern Opportunity Program

The American Bar Association Section of Litigation is now accepting applications from 2Ls for the Judicial Intern Opportunity Program (JIOP); AND beginning December 1st, 1Ls may apply as well.

The deadline for both 1 and 2Ls is January 6.

JIOP's mission is to provide opportunities to students who are members of racial and ethnic groups that are traditionally underrepresented in the profession. The program also provides opportunities to students with disabilities, students who are economically disadvantaged, and students who identify as LGBT.

The judicial internships are with state and federal judges throughout Arizona, California, DC, Florida, Illinois, Pennsylvania, Texas, and Washington State and are full-time (32 hours per week), six week minimum commitments.

JIOP seeks self-starting, critical thinking, success oriented, problem-solving team players with strong oral and written communication skills and great capacity for growth.
