The Attorney General's Office Child and Family Protection Division/Protective Services Section is seeking paralegal interns for the fall and spring semester for our Phoenix main office (downtown), Van Buren office (Van Buren and 32nd Street) and Mesa office (downtown). This section represents the Department of Child Safety (“DCS”) in child abuse and neglect actions. The Protective Services Section engages in a litigation-focused practice, handling thousands of legal actions each year. Common cases involve dependency, guardianship, severance, and adoption proceedings, as well as high-profile and complex matters involving issues such as physical abuse, neglect, and criminal conduct. They work with DCS to ensure good outcomes for children who are victims of abuse and neglect, and provide permanency for children removed from parents and placed by the courts in the legal custody of DCS.
We encourage all current paralegal studies students and recent graduates to apply. Internship positions at the Attorney General's Office (AGO) are designed to give participants exposure to the AGO work environment, including opportunities to observe and assist in legal proceedings and assume some of the same responsibilities as our full-time personnel.
Due to State budget constraints, only unpaid internships are available. Full-time and part-time internships are available.
