Hi Ms. JD Pre-Law! Here's an internship opportunity at the American Bar Association that you might want to check out:
The Standing Committee on Law and National Security conducts studies, sponsors programs and conferences and administers working groups on law and national security related issues. These activities assist policymakers, educate lawyers, the media and the public, and enable the committee to make recommendations to the American Bar Association governing body.
The committee is hiring interns to assist in conducting research and drafting memos on issues including terrorism, cybersecurity, surveillance and homeland security. Responsibilities include attending meetings and programs, as well as hearings on Capitol Hill related to national security law. Demonstrated writing skills required, editing/publishing skills a plus. An important part of the position involves social media.

Semester (3-5 days a week (flexible)) and summer internships.
Internships are accepted on a rolling basis.
A full description of this opportunity is available at this link.
