Hot Job for Summer: The Office of the NY State Attorney General Summer Law Internship Program
The Office of the New York State Attorney General is seeking law students for its 2014 Summer Law Internship Program (SLIP). The SLIP generally runs for 8 - 10 weeks between June and August. The 2014 SLIP will begin on June 2, 2014. Interns commit to work full-time for the entire duration of the program. These internships are either volunteer positions, externships for course credit, funded by a public service grant obtained by the student, or work study funded by a law school.
Placements are available statewide within the Divisions of Criminal Justice, Economic Justice, Social Justice, State Counsel, Appeals and Opinions, Regional Affairs, and Administration. Law students are needed to assist attorneys in all phases of their work including but not limited to legal research, drafting of briefs, memos and pleadings, document review, obtaining records from clients, responding to discovery requests, preparing for depositions and trials, and performing some clerical work. We are seeking hardworking interns who are committed to public service and have excellent legal research and writing skills; fluency in other languages (e.g., Spanish, Mandarin, Russian, Korean, etc.) in addition to English is a plus, but not required.
Students selected for the SLIP will be assigned to one of the bureaus in the main offices in either Manhattan or Albany, or to one of the smaller regional offices. The practice area of a bureau is generally reflected in its name. Our regional offices are located in Binghamton, Brooklyn, Buffalo, Harlem, Suffolk, Nassau, Plattsburgh, Poughkeepsie, Rochester, Syracuse, Utica, Watertown, and Westchester. The regional offices are full-service locations that handle matters such as: consumer fraud complaints and mediations; consumer frauds and related criminal prosecutions; civil rights and labor law prosecutions; and the investigation and prosecution of environmental law violations. In addition, they handle State Counsel matters in defense of the state, its agencies and employees in lawsuits brought in state and federal courts.
