Summer Law Student Internship
The Office offers students a hands-on experience working with attorneys, investigators, and staff in providing clients the best possible legal representation. During the internships, students gain real-world experience assisting with investigations, client communication, research and writing, trial preparation, and advocacy, as well as excellent training and mentorship opportunities. Second-year and third-year law students who intern with the Office assist attorneys and staff with case preparation, litigation, and ongoing and/or systemic projects related to the representation of clients, including by: conducting legal research and analysis; drafting motions, briefs, memoranda, and reports; assisting with trial preparation; assisting in client and witness interviews; assisting in courtroom proceedings; and attending court proceedings and training programs. Interns who have completed two years of law school have the opportunity to appear in court under supervision of the Office's attorneys.
