With over 900 attorneys, the Civil Division is the largest litigating division in the Justice Department. The Civil Division is composed of six components: Appellate Staff, Commercial Litigation Branch, Consumer Protection Branch, Federal Programs, Office of Immigration Litigation, and Torts Branch. Representing more than 100 federal agencies and the people of the United States, the Civil Division defends the united States in suits challenging the constitutionality of lawfulness of federal statutes; defends money claims brought against the government; and seeks affirmative fraud recoveries, among other types of litigation.
The mission of the Federal Programs Section is to represent virtually the entire Executive Branch in civil litigation. The Branch defends civil actions against the Executive Office of the President, Cabinet and other government officials, and the approximately 100 federal agencies and departments in actions attacking the legality of government policies and decisions, principally in cases brought in the federal district courts.
This is a student internship opportunity under the Pathways Program. After successful completion of the program requirements, the individual may be converted to a permanent appointment, though there is no guarantee of conversion.
You are encouraged to read this announcement in its entirety for instructions on how to apply.
