The Supreme Court Internship Program provides students with a unique opportunity to build a substantial working knowledge of the role, functions, and history of the Supreme Court of the United States. The Program offers a compelling study experience and valuable exposure to work in a professional environment. Special enrichment opportunities include attending Court sessions as well as seminars organized by the Supreme Court Fellows.
The Office of the Curator at the Supreme Court of the United States is currently accepting applications for Spring 2019 internships. For more than 40 years, interns have played an integral role in the Curator’s Office, contributing their skills and enthusiasm to completing substantive projects that assist the curatorial staff in fulfilling our mission to preserve the records and history of the Supreme Court and provide visitors with information on Court history and architecture. Additionally, all interns gain valuable public speaking and interpersonal skills by regularly conducting tours and Courtroom Lectures and by staffing a Visitor Desk.
A detailed description of our program and application instructions can be found on the Supreme Court’s website: http://www.supremecourt.gov/jobs/curatorial_internship/InternshipInfoSheet.aspx. Please share this link with any students who may be interested in applying. We encourage students to submit applications as soon as possible, but no later than the deadline of Monday, October 15.
Please note: Interns will gain an understanding of museum practices and procedures and a thorough introduction to the history and functions of the Supreme Court, however this is not a legal internship. It does not involve working with legal functions of the Court.
Students may submit questions regarding the Supreme Court Internship Program via web form or by phone at 202-479-3415.
We look forward to reading applications from your students.
