SPRING 2012 VOLUNTEER LEGAL INTERNSHIPS - ARLINGTON IMMIGRATION COURT
Legal interns will have a unique opportunity to gain substantive experience in immigration law and procedure in the context of removal proceedings. Interns will work with an array of issues in immigration law, such as eligibility for asylum and adjustment of status, implementation of the Convention Against Torture, and the immigration consequences of criminal convictions. They will develop considerable familiarity with the Immigration and Nationality Act, the Code of Federal Regulations, and immigration case law. Prior knowledge of immigration law is strongly encouraged, but not necessary. However, strong research and writing skills are required.
Interns are expected to work part-time, approximately fifteen to twenty hours per week. If you are interested in a volunteer legal internship at the Arlington Immigration Court, please submit a cover letter, resume, transcript (official or unofficial), and a brief writing sample (no more than five pages) to:
Kavita Kapur, Attorney Advisor, United States Immigration Court, Arlington, Virginia, Email:firstname.lastname@example.org
