This fall internship, beginning in September 2015, is a paid opportunity for undergraduate students in their junior year or senior year, recent college graduates or graduate students with an interest in national security. Interns will be responsible for helping to run and maintain Lawfare, a website devoted to serious, Non-ideological discussion of national security legal and policy issues. Lawfare has emerged as the internet’s indispensable resource for information and analysis on the law of national security. Devoted to “Hard National Security Choices,” the site features top-quality writing and analysis from experts on developing stories in the national security arena, relevant legislation, and judicial opinions. It is a digital magazine that includes a podcast, a book review, research tools, a daily news roundup, an events calendar, and exhaustive coverage of events other media touch only glancingly.
This internship pays an hourly rate of $10.50, and ideally applicants will work part-time during regular business hours (dependent on the applicant’s school schedule), with some flexibility around an academic course schedule. The internship is based in Washington, DC and will last approximately 10- 12 weeks (depending on the start date).
