Description: A summer internship at the Office of the Arizona Attorney General offers an unmatched opportunity to address cutting-edge legal issues, while learning from experienced appellate advocates and trial lawyers. In addition to enforcing state law, the Attorney General fights against federal overreach and special- interest lawsuits that threaten constitutional principles of federalism and infringe upon Arizonans’ right to govern themselves. For example, the Attorney General has challenged several Environmental Protection Agency regulations for exceeding the federal agency’s statutory and constitutional authority. Additionally, the Attorney General has defended state laws dealing with topics such as immigration, identity theft, and the protection of unborn children.
The Attorney General is currently accepting applications for its 2017 Summer Law Internship Program. These internships are volunteer positions, but may be eligible for public interest stipends from certain law schools. The Office is also accepting applications for law school-funded post-graduate fellowships, as well as externships for credit during the 2016-2017 and 2017-2018 school years.
Typical intern duties include complex legal research, drafting briefs and memoranda, participating in moot courts, and preparing for and observing depositions, hearings and trials.
