Legal Associate Program 2018

The Cato Institute invites graduating law school students and recent graduates to apply for our Legal Associate Program at the Robert A. Levy Center for Constitutional Studies. Students are encouraged to take the bar exam before beginning employment, though this is not a requirement. Employment will begin in Summer 2018—dates flexible and partly depend on when current associates depart—and last for one year. This is a very competitive process, so applicants are also encouraged to apply for internships with Cato at 

Legal associates assist with projects such as Supreme Court amicus briefs, research memos, policy papers, and the Cato Supreme Court Review. Please indicate in your cover letter if you may have access to outside funding—whether through your law school or elsewhere—the availability of which may make your application more attractive. We will accept applications through January 15 and will inform candidates of decisions by February 28.
