The American Bar Association Rule of Law Initiative (ABA ROLI) is seeking applicants for the Rule of Law Diversity Internship (ROLDI). With the generous support of the Jones Day Foundation, ABA ROLI will cover certain expenses for interns, including travel to/from the Washington, DC area, housing, and commuting to/from the office.
Consistent with the American Bar Association’s Goal III, which seeks to eliminate bias and enhance diversity, ABA ROLI is launching this program and is recruiting for the initial class of Jones Day Interns for the summer of 2018. ROLDI is an initiative to diversify the workforce engaged in the promotion of the rule of law abroad by offering summer internships to students who are from historically underrepresented populations, including racial and ethnic minorities, LGBTQI individuals, and persons with disabilities; and are geographically removed from Washington, DC and do not have the connections, means or other resources to obtain an internship.
Jones Day Interns will have an opportunity to work on a variety of rule of law programs, including current programs in one or more regions in which ABA ROLI operates, research and evaluation, and outreach and communications. They will also have the opportunity to attend events and activities in the foreign affairs, international development, and legal communities, including visits to the Congress, the Supreme Court, Department of State, and the United States Agency for International Development.
Program Eligibility: While open to all students who will have completed their third year of undergraduate studies, priority will be given to law students currently enrolled at an accredited law school and students who have been accepted to enroll at an accredited law school.
Program Duration: Late May – Early August 2018 (interns will commit to 9 weeks)
Program Application Deadline: March 5, 2018
