NATIONAL LABOR RELATIONS BOARD
APPELLATE AND SUPREME COURT LITIGATION BRANCH
STUDENT INTERN POSITION
The National Labor Relations Board is an independent federal agency created in 1935 to enforce the National Labor Relations Act. The NLRB conducts secret-ballot elections to determine whether employees want union representation and investigates and remedies unfair labor practices by employers and unions.
The NLRB’s Appellate and Supreme Court Litigation Branch represents the NLRB in all cases involving enforcement or review of the NLRB’s orders, in all federal circuit courts of appeals. Attorneys in the Branch handle all aspects of the appellate litigation, including drafting the NLRB’s brief and presenting oral argument before the circuit court. The Branch also works with the Office of the Solicitor General in handling the Board’s cases before the United States Supreme Court.
We are looking for a student to assist the Branch’s litigators with case evaluation, legal research, and fact development. Our student interns will work directly with the Branch’s attorneys and will get a close-up look at the development of federal labor law and the appellate process. There will be many opportunities for hands-on experiences, including observing moot courts and D.C. Circuit oral arguments. Our student interns also can look forward to producing substantial written work product, suitable for a writing sample.
We would prefer 2L or 3L students with a demonstrated interest in labor law or appellate advocacy. Strong writing skills are a requirement.
