Department of Energy (DOE) General Counsel Undergraduate Intern Program

The Department of Energy’s Office of the General Counsel Undergraduate Intern Program offers an exciting opportunity for college students to gain firsthand exposure to cutting-edge issues in energy law and policy.

Interns will have an opportunity to attend meetings, observe hearings, and learn first-hand about the work of DOE and the Office of the General Counsel. Interns can expect work assignments concerning an array of energy related issues, such as energy efficiency enforcement, implementation of energy law, renewable technologies, and increasing transparency, accountability and efficiency within the DOE. Interns will have a mix of substantive and administrative responsibilities, and may perform a wide array of tasks. Examples include: (1) policy and legal research on energy-related issues; (2) cite-checking and proofreading legal briefs, memoranda, and correspondence; (3) maintaining and improving the General Counsel Office website and DOE internal wiki; and (4) various administrative duties.

The internships are unpaid.
