The Texas Young Lawyers Association is proud to announce Interns Across Texas, a free program aimed at creating judicial internships for law school students all across the state.
Interns Across Texas aims to “kill two birds with one stone.” First, it is increasingly more difficult for law students to find meaningful internships while in law school that provide the “real-world” work experience that law firms or governments often require. Second, many of the judges in Texas lack access to smart, hard-working law students to assist in researching and drafting opinions and orders.
The goal of the Interns Across Texas program is to increase the availability of judicial internships throughout Texas by connecting law students looking for internship opportunities with state and federal judges in Texas who seek well-qualified interns.
The Web-based program allows judges to identify and ultimately hire law students across the state for unpaid, judicial internships for the summer, fall, or spring semesters. Students will apply for internships online, and judges will receive all applications electronically.
The user-friendly site allows judges to easily sort and select the best-suited applicant for each position. If you are interested in participating in the program, please sign up today!
