Summer Judicial Internship Program

The Office of Career Services administers a judicial internship program to help connect students with judges who are interested in having volunteer interns work for them during the summer. Recognizing the significant educational and experiential benefits of working in a judge's chambers, we strongly encourage our students to consider these positions when they are searching for summer employment. In recent years approximately 15% of the 1L class had participated in internships with a judge.

We are pleased to announce that The University of Chicago Law School will provide funding for law students who work at least eight full-time weeks (full-time as defined by chambers) in the summer.

Judges interested in participating in the program are asked to fill out a brief form indicating their time preferences and requirements for applicants. For more information contact Carleigh Lewaniak, Judicial Clerkship and Communications Coordinator, or (773) 834-6448.
