Washington, DC Program
ABA Rule of Law Initiative Internships are offered throughout the year and are approximately in line with Fall, Spring and Summer academic semesters. Applications are accepted on a rolling basis and internships are created and filled based on each ABA ROLI division’s specific staffing needs, workload, and capacity to host an intern for that particular internship cycle. Typically, the recruitment process can last anywhere from two to six weeks.
Interns for ABA ROLI will work with program staff of their assigned division to gain an understanding of international development programs and international rule of law issues. Responsibilities vary and may include duties such as assisting with the management of international programs, monitoring the political and economic developments in a region, researching areas of interest, developing promotional or outreach materials, aiding with correspondence, and working on day-to-day support tasks.
Although all internships are unpaid, interns at ABA ROLI are eligible for a wide variety of perks and learning opportunities, including: transportation reimbursement up to $15.00/day, field trips to D.C. legal destinations such as the U.S. Department of State, U.S. Supreme Court, and Library of Congress, and brown-bag lunches with ABA ROLI staff and guest speakers.
