Federal Trade Commission
The Federal Trade Commission is seeking applications for undergraduate interns to work with their legal staff in two FTC departments: the Bureau of Competition (the FTC’s antitrust arm) and the Bureau of Consumer Protection.
Summer interns in the Bureau of Competition work directly with attorneys and paralegals and are responsible for doing research, assisting with the preparation of case files, sitting in on meetings to take notes, drafting reports, and preparing trial exhibits. More information on the Bureau of Competition can be found at: http://www.ftc.gov/about-ftc/bureaus-offices/bureau-competition/about-bureau-competition.
Summer interns within the Bureau of Consumer Protection assist attorneys and paralegals with investigations by reviewing consumer complaints, interviewing potential witnesses, assessing fraud trends, gathering evidence online or from mobile devices, conducting research, assisting in litigation preparation, analyzing financial data, and assisting with workshops and other public events. More information on the Bureau of Consumer Protection can be found at https://www.ftc.gov/about-ftc/bureaus-offices/bureau-consumer-protection.
In all cases, interns are treated as part of the FTC’s legal team. No background in law is expected or required. But a strong interest in law and public policy is desired, and a background in Economics will be helpful for those interested in working in the Bureau of Competition.
