2019 Summer Law Internship

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. The Attorney General’s Office has jurisdiction over Arizona's Consumer Fraud Act, white collar crime, organized crime, public corruption, environmental laws, civil rights laws, and crimes committed in more than one county.

We are currently accepting applications for its 2019 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 2018-2019 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.
