Internship Opportunity
Washington, DC
$ stipend towards expenses

The summer legal internship is for a current or recently graduated law student. The selected intern will participate in the day to day work of the Office of General Counsel and have the opportunity to become involved in legal issues that affect the ability of the agency to accomplish its mission. Assignments may include issues related to historic preservation law, ethics, Freedom of Information Act, and appropriations law, and may involve attendance in meetings with outside parties. Specific assignments will be developed based on the skills and interests of the intern and agency needs. Interns will also become familiar with the full range of work of the agency and will participate in meetings and programs with others interning at related agencies and organizations.

Interns are volunteers, though a small stipend to help offset expenses will be provided. Projects can be tailored so that academic credit can be awarded. ACHP professional staff members supervise all interns.
