Public Policy and Regulation Internship

About the Program

Holland & Knight's Public Policy & Regulation Group operates a fall, spring and summer internship program geared toward current undergraduate students. During their time at Holland & Knight, interns can expect to conduct substantive issue research, attend congressional and executive branch agency hearings, draft memorandums, prepare white papers and presentations for client meetings, and provide general administrative support.

Student interns will participate in regular meetings with the firm's senior personnel to discuss their practices, backgrounds and experiences. Strong analytical and critical thinking ability, as well as a keen attention to detail and strong writing skills are essential requirements. An applied understanding of executive and legislative branch processes will also be valuable to the intern experience.

About the Position

We structure our internship program around the academic semester/summer schedule. Generally, interns work a minimum of 18 hours and a maximum of 25 hours per week. Eligible candidates are current undergraduate students in good standing. Summer candidates must plan to be enrolled in class for the following fall semester. This is a paid position.
