WASHINGTON (Sept. 30,
2016) – The National
Cattlemen’s Beef Association and the Public
Lands Council’s government affairs office in Washington, D.C., is accepting
applications for a 2017 Spring public policy intern as well as a semester
law clerk. The deadline to submit an application for either position is Oct.
The internships give college students the opportunity to work alongside staff
on a range of issues that impact U.S. cattlemen and women. The interns will
work closely with the lobbying team on Capitol Hill and assist with NCBA and
PLC’s regulatory efforts, providing college students a one-of-a-kind view into
the policy making process.
Producer-led and consumer-focused, NCBA is the nation's oldest and largest
national organization representing America's cattle producers. PLC is the only
organization in Washington, D.C., dedicated solely to representing cattle and
sheep ranchers that utilize federal lands. The organizations work hand-in-hand
on many issues, sharing office space in the heart of the nation's capital.
The public policy internship will give students an opportunity to learn about
career options and provide practical experience. From tax and trade to
environmental and food safety regulations, interns will work on a variety of
issues and have the opportunity to work specifically in the area of their
interest. College juniors, seniors and graduate students are encouraged to apply.
The summer law clerk will provide support to NCBA’s Environmental Counsel on
issues relating to environmental legislation and regulations that impact beef
producers. The position will also work closely with the Executive Director of
the Public Lands Council on issues relating to Federal lands management,
grazing, and the Endangered Species Act. To apply for the law clerk position,
students must currently be enrolled in an ABA-accredited law school.
The full-time internship and law clerk positions will begin January 9, 2017 and
end May 12, 2017. To apply for the public policy internship or law clerk
