A law school student group representative must complete this form for any event sponsored by their student group. It must be submitted two weeks prior to the event or the event will not be approved. The purpose of this form is to coordinate calendaring to avoid conflict with other events, make sure guidelines are followed and give our staff enough time to process requests and prepare for the event. Events will be scheduled on a first come, first served basis. 

Networkx  is our Career Services Program and job posting site. Employers are  welcome to log on, post jobs and follow the application process. As an alternative, if you are uncomfortable creating an account with Networkx, you can fill out this form and we can post a job announcement on Networkx for you. It will expedite the process, however, if you use Networkx directly.

We are pleased that the Alexander Blewett III School of Law may be able to provide the space you require for your event.  However, please understand that our priority is our students and their ability to conduct their studies in the best possible environment.  We will do everything we can to accommodate your request.

Depending on the purpose of your space requirement, there may be a charge for use of our facility.  Please complete this questionnaire and one of our staff will be in touch with you to discuss further.

The Max Baucus Institute invites applications from University of Montana undergraduate and graduate students for an opportunity to be part of the fifth class of Baucus Leaders in the summer of 2022. The Baucus Institute focuses on inspiring public service by providing training, education, and internship opportunities to current and future public and private sector leaders to prepare them to address the critical legal and policy challenges facing Montana, the United States, and the world.

Baucus Leaders Program
The Institute recognizes that, much like Ambassador Baucus’s own life experiences, it is the public service experiences that we can provide to students that will inspire them to engage in meaningful work to benefit society. The Institute seeks ten exceptional Montana college students to make up our fifth class of Baucus Leaders.

Each Baucus Leader will be placed as an intern with a Washington D.C.-based legislative, committee, or agency office. While the Institute hopes to have all 2022 Baucus Leaders perform their internships in Washington, D.C., some or all of the internships may be performed remotely if the state of the COVID-19 pandemic this coming summer does not allow for in-person internships. Given this uncertainty, please apply only if you will accept a remote internship should that be the only option available.

The composition of 2022 Baucus Leader placements is not yet finalized, but is likely to be similar to previous years' placements, which have included internships with Senator Steve Daines (R–MT), Senator Jon Tester (D–MT), Senator Sherrod Brown (D-OH), Senator Charles Grassley (R–IA), Senator Kirsten Gillibrand (D–NY), Senator Chuck Schumer (D–NY), Senator Michael Bennet (D-CO), Senator Mike Crapo (R-ID) and the United States Senate Finance Committee, among others. Final 2022 Baucus Leader placement opportunities will be announced no later than the end of January 2022.

Each internship will start on or around June 1 and end on or around August 1. Each Baucus Leader will be given a $5,000 stipend. The Baucus Leader will be solely responsible for any expenses incurred during the internship period over and above this amount.

Qualifications
Baucus Leaders will be selected based on academic performance, commitment to public service, and interest in the political process. The program is open to all current University of Montana undergraduate and graduate students who are in good academic standing at the time of applying and who will be enrolled as full-time students at a Montana public college or university during Fall Semester 2022.

Applications are due no later than 5:00 pm on Friday, December 10, 2021. Late or incomplete applications will not be considered.

The Institute will select two-to-three finalists for each internship. Finalists will be notified by email of their selection in late January or early February. The Baucus Leader for each placement will be selected by the DC office. There is NO guarantee that the congressional office or agency will interview finalists in making this determination. A finalist may be required to submit additional application materials to that office.

NOTE: Baucus Leader selections may extend to the end of spring semester 2022.

Contact Program Coordinator Mel Brittner Wells via email (mel.brittnerwells@umontana.edu) with any questions you have about the program. We look forward to reviewing your application.
