Well, actually, the work promises to be very substantive but not entirely Xerox-free: "Minimal grunt work! ...You won't make copies for anyone but yourself." The attorney-watchdog and law-reform group HALT has a revolving internship program, for college and grad students. It's in its Washington, D.C. headquarters on K Street. This link explains the advantages (including "Food!" and nearby Metro) and application process.
We have posted here and here on some of HALT's important work, including their letter grades for states' lawyer disciplinary processes. Michigan gets a C, unsurprisingly--though even then that mark is based on Incomplete "promptness" information due to the state's failure to report such stats to the ABA, and it appears the score would be lower if its actual MPH were considered. Anyway, I like the fact that the group's name does not appear to be an acronym for anything.
