Lateral hire into the section after at least one year of practice is available through experienced attorney hiring.
Law students are encouraged to apply for internships made available through volunteer legal intern recruitment and the Summer Law Intern Program (SLIP). The Aviation and Admiralty Section selects roughly seven law students per summer as volunteer interns, and one or two interns during the academic year.
