SEC'S Summer 2012 2L Honors Program

The SEC has opened its applications for 2Ls interested in our 2012 Summer Honors Program.  Please include the following listing in any resource or email that you provide to your students.  We welcome applications, and we will begin reviewing applications on a rolling basis on September 16, 2011.

The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission is looking for strong 2L students for its 2012 Summer Honors Program.  Students have the opportunity to work for ten weeks during the summer at the SEC's Washington DC headquarters or at one of its eleven Regional Offices.  Interns directly support attorneys and other professionals in the regulation and enforcement of the securities markets.  Each intern is assigned to one of the SEC’s offices or divisions for a ten-week period.  The potential assignments are as varied as the SEC’s responsibilities in regulating the securities markets.  We have high expectations for our interns, often assigning them the same work we would give a newly-hired staff attorney who had completed law school.  Students who succeed in their assignments assist with tasks such as drafting regulations, reviewing filings, or preparing for interviews and testimony.  They spend hours every day with line attorneys, and they support senior executives.

We will begin reviewing applications and hiring on a rolling basis beginning September 16, 2011.  We expect to evaluate applications at two-week intervals after that point.   The posting will officially close on October 14, 2011.

For more information, look at the SEC’s Web site.  There is a link there to the Futurestep Web site used for SEC hiring.  Students should look on that page under Current Opportunities / Washington, DC and click “Student Opportunities/Volunteer Opportunities.”  From there, they can apply to the DC or regional offices.  Any questions regarding the application process should be directed to students@sec.gov
