Summer 2019 Internship
The MacArthur Justice Center’s Appellate Project is accepting applications from students who are interested in spending the summer working on appellate litigation and are passionate about criminal justice issues. Students will work principally on appeals before the U.S. Supreme Court, federal circuit courts, or state courts of appeal, which raise important issues related to civil rights and the criminal justice system. Students will have the opportunity to make a substantial contribution to the office’s ongoing appellate cases, including performing research and drafting legal analysis for briefs that will be filed in federal court.
