The New York District Office of the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission presides over and decides employment discrimination cases filed against the federal government under Title VII, the Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA), the Rehabilitation Act, and the Equal Pay Act. There are currently six Administrative Judges in our office.
Throughout the year the Judicial Internship Program affords approximately six to eight law students the opportunity to work closely with the Administrative Judges and learn about employment discrimination as well as evidentiary, procedural, and administrative law issues. Interns are directly involved with the cases and participate in a full array of legal work and assignments, including the following:
There is no funding for this Program. Most students receive credit, work study or a fellowship from their law school for their participation. If you wish to apply to the Program, please send your resume and cover letter to Administrative Judge Karen Ortiz at firstname.lastname@example.org or Administrative Judge Monique Roberts-Draper at email@example.com.
