Advisory Council on Historic Preservation
Office of General Counsel

A small, independent federal agency, the Advisory Council on Historic Preservation (ACHP) advises the President and Congress on national preservation policy and oversees the historic preservation review process for federal projects. The ACHP conducts a variety of preservation programs dealing with promoting public appreciation of cultural heritage, economic development, youth engagement, and Native American interests. Its mission is the preservation, enhancement, and sustainable use of our nation's diverse historic resources.

Legal Intern
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, social media, 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.

Potential 2017 projects

Research relevant parts of the National Historic Preservation Act, Section 106 regulations, federal policies and guidance, and consider how the courts have treated public involvement as part of a federal agency's Section 106 responsibilities.

Related to this research, consider the question of standing to bring claims involving Section 106 and assess the most common types of complaints raised in the context of the National Historic Preservation Act.
