Student Trainee (Legal Assistant) – Huntington, West Virginia
U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Department of the Army
Job ID: 206265Start Date: 02/05/2020End Date: 02/19/2020
USACE Huntington District Office of Counsel is searching for a legal intern who has completed at least one year of law school. Applicants should be able to work full-time during the summer of 2020 and the beginning and end dates are flexible. Who May Apply: Students who are eligible for participation in the Department of the Army Internship Program
Positions are open to current students pursuing a qualifying degree or certificate in an accredited high school, college (including 4-year colleges/universities, community colleges, and junior colleges); professional, technical, vocational, and trade school; advanced degree programs; or other qualifying educational institution on at least a half-time basis (as defined by the institution in which the student is enrolled). Short-term training programs (e.g., several two-week programs completed) are not considered an academic course of study. Internship for current students in good standing at an accredited education. For this internship, you should be able to work full-time when not attending classes (i.e., summers, fall and spring breaks, etc.). This intern position is designed to prepare a student trainee for employment after graduation. Interns will be assigned tasks designed to increase familiarity with a legal occupation in a real world work environment. Internship selection will be made at the GS-07. This grade level is what typical college students in their second year of law school may qualify. See requirements for conversion to permanent or term position in the “Additional Information” section below. To qualify for a Pathways Internship as a GS-07, students must have successfully completed one full year of study in a school of law accredited by the American Bar Association (ABA) and seeking a professional law degree (LL.B. or J.D.). For qualification purposes, an academic year is computed as follows: At the undergraduate level, successfully completed education that has not led to possession of a degree is credited based on its relationship to 120 semester hours or 180 quarter hours. For example, 30 semester hours or 45 quarter hours is comparable to 1 year of undergraduate education. Four years of progressive study or 120 semester hours meets the degree requirements. Additional credit cannot be given for duplicate course work. For study at a business or technical school, 36 weeks of study (20+ classroom hours per week) is comparable to 1 academic year above high school. An academic year of graduate education is considered to be the number of credit hours that the school attended has determined to represent 1 academic year of full-time study. This determination is made based on normal course loads for a full year of study in the graduate program. If that information cannot be obtained from the school, 18 semester hours or 27 quarter hours should be considered as satisfying the 1 year of full-time study requirement. Part-time graduate education is creditable in accordance with its relationship to a year of full-time study at the school attended. When academic credit is expressed in contract months, units, or other terms that differ from conventional semester or quarter hours, it is the responsibility of the applicant to provide an interpretation of such credits from the appropriate institution in order to equate them to the semester or quarter hours specified in the standard. NOTE: If your college, vocational, trade, technical or high schools’ definition of “academic year” differs from above, you must submit proof of this difference (e.g., copy of course catalog that defines an academic year). Absent this documentation, you will screened for academic qualifications based on the academic hours as defined in the bullets above. You will be evaluated on the basis of your level of competency in the following areas:
