Profile

Spring Volunteer Legal Internship
The intern will work in the Criminal Enforcement Section. Will assist in as many aspects of the Division's work as possible. Interns work closely with that section's attorneys on a wide range of issues, to the extent allowed by law. Interns are frequently asked to research legal issues that arise in pending cases, but may also be asked to prepare legal memoranda or draft pleadings, briefs, motions, and other legal documents. May assist with discovery, including drafting interrogatories, document requests, and subpoenas. May also have the opportunity to help attorneys prepare for arguments, trials, and hearings, and may have the opportunity to attend and observe those that are local. Law students with a strong academic record and excellent legal research and writing skills will be considered. Must be able to grasp issues quickly, conduct thorough and accurate research, and write clearly, concisely, and persuasively. Will be expected to work 10-12 weeks during the semester, for 15+ hours per week.

Application Deadline: October 1, 2020.
