Magistrate Judge Alan Kay of the United States District Court for the District of Columbia is accepting applications for judicial interns for summer 2016.

A judicial intern in Magistrate Judge Kay’s chambers will work directly with the law clerks as well as with Magistrate Judge Kay.  An intern’s primary responsibilities include conducting legal research on issues of civil and criminal law, and drafting bench memoranda and opinions. Applicants must therefore possess strong writing ability and legal analysis skills.  Interns may also assist law clerks with courtroom preparation and other administrative duties.  Additionally, interns will have the opportunity to attend hearings, trials, courthouse events, as well as the summer speaker series.

These unpaid internships are open to all law students, though interns must have completed a minimum of one year of law school by the time the internship commences.

Applicants should submit a cover letter, resume, transcript (unofficial is accepted), list of three references, and a short (5-10 page) writing sample.  First-year (1L) students may submit applications prior to receiving their first-semester grades, though students are expected to update their applications once grades become available.

Please submit all applications to:

Mr. Benjamin Flick, Law Clerk

The Honorable Alan Kay

United States District Court for the District of Columbia

333 Constitution Avenue, N.W.

Washington, D.C. 20001
