If you are interested in a legal career or law enforcement, the Department of Justice offers a variety of internship opportunities for students.
Each summer the department selects 30-plus law students to serve as legal interns. As a legal intern, your work assignments would include drafting appellate briefs, attending hearings and depositions, and organizing and drafting discovery responses.
If you are an undergraduate student pursuing a career in law enforcement, the State Bureau of Investigation offers an internship program.
Interns are assigned to work with SBI agents throughout the state
. Some students are also assigned to the SBI Crime Lab, where they assist with the testing and analysis of DNA evidence and other types of evidence.
The SBI internship program runs throughout the year, although the majority of the students are selected for summer assignments.
Although these internship programs are unpaid, the department strongly encourages you to seek academic credit or financial assistance through grant programs.
