Summer Internship Program
The intern will work in the Commercial Transactions and Litigation Division. Interns will be given substantive work in a wide range of areas, some of which have been the subject of media coverage because of their significance. Interns may have the opportunity to help the assigned attorney prepare for and attend discovery proceedings such as depositions, draft pleadings or briefs and observe proceedings in state and federal trial courts, attend hearings at the Office of State Administrative Hearings and arguments before the Georgia appellate courts. Since there is such a variety of matters handled in the division, students may be attending a routine garnishment hearing one day and a Georgia Supreme Court argument on a multi-million dollar tax dispute the next. In addition to litigation, the division offers the unique opportunity to be exposed to transactional practice, which may include contract drafting or review and the opportunity to be exposed to cutting-edge financing issues such as public private initiatives. Interns will gain an understanding of how the State acquires real property and be exposed to other real property management issues. Students may accompany attorneys as they attend meetings with client agencies and work on advice in response to agency requests. Interns will be exposed to Georgia laws and statutory interpretation principles and gain an understanding of the unique constraints placed upon governmental agencies by the Georgia Constitution, such as the prohibitions against pledging the states credit or the granting of gratuities and will become familiar with governmental defenses such as sovereign immunity. The primary goal of the internship program is to give law students a hands-on opportunity to experience a unique public law practice. In addition to real life lawyering experiences, interns will also have the opportunity to attend out of office events. Rising third year law students who are currently enrolled in an accredited law school will be considered. The program generally runs from the first week in June through the second week in August.

Stipend: $3000

Application Deadline: November 15
