Summer Intern Program

The Summer Intern Program has a long history and is one of the most important programs NABA-DC organizes. It provides educational and networking opportunities to interns working in organizations throughout DC in the Indian law and policy field.

The Mentorship Program provides interns the opportunity to receive a NABA-DC mentor.  Interns receive a personal networking experience as well as valuable insight from their mentors. Not only does the Mentorship Program enrich the interns’ educational experience in DC, but it also connects practitioners with the next generation of leaders in Indian law and policy.  NABA-DC makes efforts to match interns and mentors with similar professional and personal interests.  If you have questions about the NABA-DC Mentorship Program or would like to sign up to receive or serve as a mentor, you can contact nabadcmentorship@gmail.com.  You may also request to receive a mentor during the school year if you will be located in DC.

The Intern Lunch Program provides interns the opportunity to attend lunches scheduled each week throughout the summer.  The lunches are organized by NABA-DC and hosted by organizations throughout DC in the field of Indian law and policy, including government offices and agencies, large and small law firms, and non-profit organizations.  Many host organizations have generously opened their doors to the NABA-DC interns for years.  Through the lunches, the interns are able to learn about the wide spectrum of Indian law and policy practiced in DC within the various organizations and to meet practitioners.  If you have questions about the NABA-DC Intern Lunch Program or would like to sign up to host a lunch, you can contact nabadcbrownbag@gmail.com.

NABA-DC also organizes social events throughout the summer for the interns.  Past events have included a welcome happy hour, a summer picnic, and a Washington Nationals’ baseball game.
