4. Where are your internships located?

All of our internships are located at the national headquarters of the National Association of Women Judges at 1001 Connecticut Avenue, NW, Suite 1138, Washington, DC 20036. We do not offer internships in any other locations, and we cannot pay for the relocation expenses of our interns.

Our office is very accessible by public transportation within the Washington, DC metropolitan area, both by Metrorail (Red, Blue or Orange lines) and Metrobus. For more information on public transit in Washington DC, visit www.wmata.com.

5. Will I be offered a job after my internship?

Interns at the National Association of Women Judges are encouraged to apply for permanent jobs as they become available. Interns will have access to our soon-to-be-released online job board as well, and may apply for vacant positions in the chambers of our member judges. Our internship program, however, does not in any way guarantee employment after the completion of an intern’s time.

6. When will I hear whether or not I was accepted into NAWJ’s internship program?

Our hiring timeline is very flexible and variable. We review applications on a rolling basis and will sometimes hire interns long before an internship semester starts.

7. Do you accept applications from international students?

We have hired qualified international students in the past, considering them with the rest of our applicant pool. We generally do not accept applications that are facilitated by third party groups, preferring that interns apply directly using our application process.

8. Do you require recommendations or writing samples?

Interns are selected on the basis of their application, cover letter, resume, references and phone interview(s). We do not require applicants to include recommendations or writing samples in their application materials.

9. Do you accept applications through internship placement programs?

NAWJ welcomes applications from students who are involved in an internship placement program. We do require, however, that these applicants comply with our application process. While internship placement program staff are welcomed to initiate contact with us, we strongly prefer to communicate directly with applicants.
