Clerkships and Internships

Published: Dec 18, 2019

Clerkships

The Republican Staff of the House Committee on Oversight and Reform, the chief investigative body of the House of Representatives, is looking for full- and part-time law clerks.  Law clerks will have the opportunity to work with the oversight and policy teams, conducting research, reviewing documents, and preparing for hearings and markups.  

Applicants must be current law school students with strong writing skills who are enthusiastic and knowledgeable about the Committee’s work.  The strongest candidates will also be organized and detail-oriented, as they will balance multiple, often disparate, projects corresponding with the broad jurisdiction of the Committee.   

Clerkships are usually available in the spring, summer, and fall.  Specific dates for clerkships will be determined on a case-by-case basis, and preference will be afforded to those who are available at least three days a week.  This is an unpaid position, but we are happy to work with an applicant so they can receive class credit. 

Interested individuals should submit a cover letter and resume to oversight.committee@mail.house.gov.  Please place “LAW CLERK” in the subject line.  Applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis.

Internships

The Minority Staff of the Committee on Oversight and Reform, the chief investigative body of the House of Representatives, is seeking full- and part-time interns.  Interns will have the opportunity to work with the administrative, policy, and press teams, conducting research, assisting during hearings and markups, and helping with other administrative tasks as necessary.  

Internships are usually available in the spring, summer, and fall.  Specific dates for this internship will be determined on a case-by-case basis, and preference will be afforded to those who are available at least three days a week.  

Applicants must be strong writers, organized, and detail-oriented, as they will balance multiple, often disparate, projects corresponding with the broad jurisdiction of the Committee.  The strongest candidates will also exhibit discretion in working on confidential matters and be enthusiastic and knowledgeable about the Committee’s work.  Previous experience on Capitol Hill strongly desired, but not required.  The position is unpaid, but we are happy to work with an applicant so they can receive class credit.  

Interested individuals should submit a cover letter and resume to oversight.committee@mail.house.gov.  Please place “INTERN” in the subject line.  Applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis.
