The Suffolk County District Attorney’s office offers the opportunity for undergraduate college students to participate in unpaid internship programs. Interns are assigned to bureaus within the office where they are teamed with assistant district attorneys to assist in areas such as legal research and writing, trial preparation, witness interviews, court calendar control and evidence organization. The following programs are available:
The Suffolk County District Attorney’s office offers unpaid internship opportunities to law school students during the summer. A limited number of unpaid internships are also available to undergraduate college students. Students are advised that requests for internships far exceed the number of intern positions available. Summer interns are required to work a minimum of 15 hours per week and, as internships are unpaid, workday schedules are flexible to allow for students to have paid employment as needed during the summer break. Summer internship requests sent to the office prior to March 1st will not be considered.
The Suffolk County District Attorney’s office offers a limited number of unpaid internship and school externship opportunities to law school students during the fall and spring school semesters. Requests for internships that are required for course credit must be made as early as possible to ensure that any hours worked requirements by the school’s program to earn school credit can be met.
Any paperwork or forms for an internship that involves a stipend or any other form of payment by the school or any other source must be submitted by the school, along with all similar applications from the same school, at the earliest possible date. Failure to follow this procedure may result in a denial of a request for an internship.
