Summary: Commissioner Allison Clements is hiring legal and technical interns for her office at the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC). The position may be full- or part-time and will run for the duration of the summer term, with exact dates flexible to accommodate the applicant’s curricular commitments. We will consider alternate position lengths and work schedules on a case-by-case basis. Although the position is unpaid, our office will enthusiastically support an application for course credit or public interest funding through the applicant’s law school.
Major duties of this position include:
- Reviewing and analyzing Commission orders;
- Preparing memos summarizing legal issues arising under the Federal Power Act, Natural Gas Act, and Energy Policy Act of 2005;
- Working on the Commissioner’s speeches and separate statements; and
- Assisting with other projects as assigned.
Who May be Considered: 2nd and 3rd year law students as well as non-law graduate students with relevant industry experience.
How to Apply: Applicants should submit a resume, a transcript, a writing sample, and a list of three references. Applicants in their first year of graduate school should also include an undergraduate transcript. Applications should be submitted to Alexander.DeTaboada@ferc.gov with the subject line “Summer 2022 Internship Application, [Name].” We will consider applications on a rolling basis, beginning Monday, November 15, 2021.
Additional Information: U.S. Citizenship is required. Volunteers will undergo a background investigation. The Commission is currently operating in a 100% telework environment due to the COVID-19 pandemic; if this changes during the position’s duration, the intern may report to FERC HQ in Washington, D.C. but will not be required to do so.
