How to apply for an internship with Law

We offer unpaid internship positions for college students throughout the year. You have three options to apply to join our team.

Step

Before you get started

We hire for part-time, unpaid internships. You must work at least 15 hours each week during the school semester. You have to finish at least one year of school before you can apply.

We prefer to hire residents, but we will consider non-residents as well. We're also an equal opportunity employer, and encourage minority students to apply.

During the internship, you’ll get experience in two areas:

  1. Litigation: You’ll learn about civil defense litigation by doing research, drafting pleadings, and looking into claims. You'll also help with responses and going to hearings. Lawsuits range anywhere from pothole claims to class action lawsuits.
  2. Government Services: You’ll help us provide legal counsel to the City's departments. You'll handle contracts and learn construction and zoning laws, while offering research and litigation aid.
Step

To apply for an internship, you need to give us:
