Law Student Volunteer, Academic Year
The candidate will get the experience to work in criminal prosecution or civil litigation in the Last Frontier. Assignments include, drafting responsive motions, dispositive motions, memoranda of law, and appellate briefs. Interns become familiar with the rules of evidence and either the Federal Rules of Civil or Criminal Procedure depending on placement with Criminal or Civil Division. In addition, interns may attend depositions, meetings with agents, and accompany the attorneys to observe court proceedings. By local rule, law students in their second semester of their second year of law school, or law students in their third-year of law school, have a unique opportunity to be approved to appear in court at hearings and participate in trials. Perform research projects and assist in discovery, motion practice, and trial preparation. To ensure that all interns finish the summer with a good writing sample, every intern will work under the guidance of an AUSA to prepare documents to be filed with the court. Interns will be given assignments with as many different attorneys as possible, providing exposure to a wider variety of practice areas and professional contacts. We also have brown bag lunches at which AUSAs, the defense bar, the judiciary, and federal agents speak.

Law students that have completed their first year.
Minimum Participation Required: 8-10 weeks.
