Student Work

Students work with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) attorneys on cases covering a broad range of the Commission’s mission such as conducting investigations of industry and issuer practices, and assisting in the litigation of enforcement actions, including trial preparation and legal research and writing. Students are primarily placed within the Enforcement Division in the Boston Office, which is located in downtown Boston.

Students may work with the SEC during fall or spring terms for between 15-20 hours per week and will earn 3 or 4 clinical credits through the Independent Clinical Program. The SEC takes 1-2 students per term.

Fall 2018

Interested students are invited to submit an application via the USAJobs website.
The deadline to apply is May 13, 2018.

Students who apply and are cleared by the SEC and offered an internship for the fall will then need to submit an independent clinical application in accordance with the guidelines described on the Office of Clinical and Pro Bono Programs website.

Independent clinical applications are due to OCP by August 28, 2018. Students will receive independent clinical credit once they have been enrolled by OCP.
