SLIP Participating Components

Participating components for 2014 will be posted in May/June 2014.

The components listed below indicated that they will participate in the Summer Law Intern Program for summer 2014. Actual hiring is subject to availability of funds and the number of positions listed is tentative. A final decision on whether the Department will hire for the SLIP will be made later in the year but prior to issuing any offers. We regret any inconvenience that this may cause. Applicants must meet Summer Law Intern Program eligibility requirements for all positions listed below.  Some offices, in particular the Office of the Solicitor General and the Office of Legal Counsel, impose additional eligibility criteria (e.g., judicial clerkship requirements).   Applicants must meet any additional eligibility criteria specified by a hiring component by the application deadline.

Other Department components may participate informally in the Summer Law Intern Program.  They may not follow the regular Program timeline and may contact a candidate at any time during or after the review and selection process. 

Some informal participants request to be listed on the online application. Applicants are then able to check a box to indicate their interest in being considered by that office. This does not count as one of an applicant's three employment preferences.
