Senator Feinstein is seeking current law students for unpaid, part-time or full-time law clerkships in her Senate Judiciary Committee office in Washington, D.C. The clerkship will begin mid-May and end at the beginning of August. Law clerks assist staff with legislative and oversight responsibilities.

Clerks engage in a range of activities, including, but not limited to, preparing hearing materials, conducting legal research, and drafting briefing memoranda for the Senator. Some general office support is also required. Ideal candidates are current students who wish to learn about the legislative process, and are interested in government and public interest law. Candidates should have strong writing and research skills as well as a good sense of humor. Please e-mail your resume, a cover letter that includes your availability, your unofficial transcript, a short writing sample, and a list of at least three references to firstname.lastname@example.org.
