If you’re looking for Summer Opportunities with the military, here’s some opportunities:

Each year, we select 25 first- and second-year law students to work at Air Force base legal offices throughout the United States and at our headquarters in Washington, D.C.

Each summer, the Army JAG Corps hires law students to work as legal interns in hundreds of offices across the United States and around the world in places like Germany, South Korea, Japan, Alaska, and Hawaii. For 60 calendar days, these summer interns work as temporary civil service employees performing a variety of legal assignments.

CGJAG has internships at most legal offices, most of our internships are unpaid or for academic credit. Each legal office has a specific point of contact. A large number of the internship positions are at Coast Guard Headquarters in Washington, DC.
