Judicial Watch is currently seeking interns for our 2014 Fall Internship Program to serve in the following capacities:

Public Affairs interns will gain experience in media relations, media booking, copy-editing, event planning, and inter-departmental communications. Interns will assist with media outreach, media calls, media contact updates, booking Judicial Watch spokespeople for appearances and interviews, tracking lawsuits and research through the press release process, reaching out to leading experts and Members of Congress for speaking engagements, planning educational panels and special events, helping to keep the staff apprised to what is being said in the media about Judicial Watch, as well as various other duties as assigned. Interns must have an excellent command of English; a willingness to learn; and must be detail oriented and comfortable in a deadline-driven environment. A familiarity with the AP Stylebook is preferred. If interested, please send a cover letter, resume, and a 500-word writing sample to Patrick Roy at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Investigations Internships: Investigations interns at Judicial Watch are introduced to the structure of government agencies subject to the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA). Investigations Interns learn about the nine FOIA exemptions, and how to draft FOIA requests accordingly. They also research the open records laws for state and local governments and use their findings to supplement requests at the federal level. Once the interns in the JW Investigations Department have been trained on proper FOIA protocol, they are encouraged to explore key issues of personal interest and/or open investigations under Judicial Watch’s guidance. If interested, please send a cover letter, resume, and a 500 word writing sample to Patrick Roy at email@example.com.
Legal Internships: Legal interns have the opportunity to work closely with our Legal Department and our FOIA lawsuits seeking information on such vital issues as the Benghazi scandal and voter fraud. Over the course of 8-10 weeks, interns will assist Judicial Watch’s six attorneys and two paralegals with legal research, brief writing, drafting FOIA requests and administrative appeals, document review and analysis, initiating litigation, and a host of other key litigation responsibilities. If interested, please send a cover letter, resume, and a writing sample (no more than 10 pages) to Patrick Roy at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Development and Fundraising Internships: Judicial Watch’s Development Department is seeking interns for its busy and growing fundraising development program to assist Development staff in the many day-to-day activities fundamental to raising over $21 million for one of the leading conservative non-profit organizations in America. Development interns will gain experience and understanding in all aspects of non-profit fundraising, from direct mail, internet fundraising, and foundation grants, to major and planned giving programs. Interns will assist with a variety of tasks including donor correspondence, telephone calls to donors, writing and sending acknowledgement letters, major donor research and foundation grant writing. Interns will also gain a thorough knowledge about the importance of donor databases by assisting with data-entry, data clean up, donor coding and more. Interns must be politically conservative, detail oriented and willing to learn. If interested, please send a cover letter, resume, and a 500 word writing sample to Patrick Roy at email@example.com.
