The Middle District of Florida, Tampa Division, offers a unique opportunity for 12 qualified law students to gain valuable legal experience participating in a rotational program in which each student interns in the chambers of a U.S. District Judge, a U.S. Magistrate Judge, and a U.S. Bankruptcy Judge.
Dates of Internship: May 16, 2022 – July 29, 2022
Location: Sam M. Gibbons U.S. Courthouse, 801 N. Florida Avenue, Tampa, FL
Qualification Requirements: Students must have completed at least two semesters of law school by the start of the program, possess excellent research and writing skills, and be in the top one-third of their law school class.
Application Materials and Deadline: Submit a cover letter, resume, legal writing sample, and law school transcript (unofficial is fine) that includes all law school grades to date. Professional references and letters of recommendation are optional. Application materials should be submitted as a single PDF document to CHAMBERS_FLMD_HONEYWELL@FLMD.USCOURTS.GOV by January 21, 2022. Applications that do not include grades will not be considered.
