    Consumer and Governmental Affairs BureauLegal Intern

    CGB Legal Interns generally will be given assignments related to projects arising from the work of CGB’s Consumer Policy Division (CPD), Disability Rights Office (DRO), Office of Native Affairs and Policy (ONAP), and Office of Intergovernmental Affairs (IGA).

    CPD is responsible for the development of consumer policy concerning Commission-regulated entities, in areas such as transparency and consumer disclosures. Through rulemakings and orders for which it has primary responsibility, and by commenting on rulemakings and orders originated by other Bureaus and Offices, CPD ensures that consumer interests are considered in all Commission policymaking activities. DRO addresses disability-related telecommunications matters, including telecommunications relay services (TRS), access to telecommunications equipment and services by persons with disabilities, closed captioning, and access to emergency information. ONAP’s work focuses on promoting the deployment and adoption of communication services and technologies in Native communities and on Tribal Lands. IGA serves as the Commission’s liaison to state and local governments, and other federal regulatory agencies. Its goal is to foster a better understanding of FCC programs, policies, rules, and decisions; facilitate a two-way exchange of information and communications on telecommunications issues; and promote consultation, cooperation, and coordination in areas of overlapping jurisdiction.

    Some interns may focus primarily or solely on the work of one Division/Office, and some may receive assignments from a variety of them. Interns also may be given assignments related to special projects arising out of the Office of the Bureau Chief.
