Due to a lapse in appropriations, EPA websites will not be regularly updated. In the event of an environmental emergency imminently threatening the safety of human life or where necessary to protect certain property, the EPA website will be updated with appropriate information. Please note that all information on the EPA website may not be up to date, and transactions and inquiries submitted to the EPA website may not be processed or responded to until appropriations are enacted.

We've made some changes to If the information you are looking for is not here, you may be able to find it on the EPA Web Archive or the January 19, 2017 Web Snapshot.


Internships and Fellowships for Law Students and Recent Law School Grads

Unlike almost all other EPA jobs, attorney jobs do not need to be published on To maximize your chances of finding out about all EPA legal internship opportunities, you should:

  • review the information available from the links below,
  • check with your law school careers office since they may know of paid and/or unpaid opportunities at EPA offices other than those described on the links below, and
  • check periodically.

All positions advertised through are paid. With respect to the links below, if information about a specific program does not indicate that it offers paid positions, assume the positions are unpaid/volunteer. Don't hesitate to ask, however; a program may be able to pay a stipend even if it has not been able to do so in the past.
