Unpaid Legal Student Internships
Interns may receive academic credit for services with approval from school. Interns in the Legal Unit will work with Trial Attorneys engaged in litigation against employers for violations of Title VII, the ADEA and the ADA. This work will mostly be legal research and writing. Students may assist in interviewing claimants or witnesses, help prepare discovery responses based on those interviews, or help prepare claimants or witnesses for deposition. Occasionally, students may be asked to abstract depositions and develop fact responses for defending against motions for summary judgment. In addition to the legal assignments, interns are given the opportunity to observe different aspects of agency functions. Depending on availability and schedules, students will sit it on intake interviews, mediation sessions, Administrative Hearings, court hearings on routine and contested matters, and, sometimes, trials. Students will also have ample opportunities to observe depositions. When possible, the students are encouraged to observe activities that build upon work, have performed. For example, if a student has provided research on a motion, are encouraged to attend court when the motion is heard. If have interviewed witnesses on a case, are encouraged to then sit in on depositions related to that case. Candidates will be evaluated based on academic performance, demonstrated research and writing skills, and interest in furthering the mission of the agency.
