The interns will work under the supervision, and with the assistance of, experienced tax lawyers (or personnel and labor attorneys in General Legal Services Division). Will gain training and work experience that helps prepare for a career as a tax lawyer and also provides an excellent view of what the practice of law is like at the Office of Chief Counsel. May take part in a variety of training, educational and social events, as well as interagency tours and presentations. Second-year law students at ABA accredited law schools preferably having class rank in Top 20% will be considered. Must have work or achievement in the law school's law review or other recognized law journal. Should have special high-level honors for academic excellence in law school, such as selection to Order of the Coif or receipt of the American Jurisprudence Award in related courses; or top grades in related course work (e.g., 'A' grades in tax courses). Winning a moot court or mock trial competition or membership on a moot court or mock trial team is preferred. Significant participation in legal public service (e.g., public sector or non-profit organization internship, work in tax clinic as a VITA volunteer, etc.); significant legal tax related or other relevant experience while in law school (e.g., law firm internship, clerkships, or other work which has substantially contributed to preparation for the position) is desired.
