Advanced Law & Trial Internship Summit

The Advanced Law and Trial Internship Summit is a first-of-its-kind program that allows motivated high school students to assist Goodwin, Weber PLLC in two cases of national importance, one federal criminal and another federal civil. In this accelerated micro internship, students will spend seven days working on witness preparation for either a federal criminal investigation or completing trial research on disparate impact portion of a civil rights case involving gender discrimination. These cases contain highly confidential information and will require nondisclosure agreements from students and parents.

The criminal trial is scheduled to begin this summer. The discrimination case will be filed in the Fall of 2018.

Throughout the micro internship, student teams will connect with top law professors and leading attorneys about the cases, sift through legal documents, review evidence, and help prepare the client for trial. On the final day, students assigned to the criminal case will do a mock direct and cross-examination to prepare their client for witness testimony in the nationally publicized case in July. Students focusing on the civil rights case will present case law precedent and strategies for trial to the client and attorney, which ideas and case law research may become part of the U.S. District Court complaint to be filed in the Fall. Students will receive letters of recommendation from the lead attorney trying the cases and may have their ideas implemented.

Students selected to participate in this program automatically receive the Future Leaders Mentorship Scholarship. The scholarship partners students with top-tier mentors from across the globe for six months. Mentors include members of the State Department, USAID, Capital Hill, Georgetown University, World Bank, National Institute of Health, NASA, FBI, ACLU, The Peace Corps, Johns Hopkins and more.

Students will also receive $1000 in tuition assistance, free SAT/ACT training through TestRocker, college essay editing assistance, two letters of recommendation, and scholarship application assistance. These benefits remain available for four years to allow nominations for rising freshmen through rising seniors. Graduating seniors receive specialized benefits tailored to them.
