Law Student Volunteer or Academic Internships

Law students may apply for a academic (volunteer) internship for the Fall, Spring, or Summer semesters. Interns are assigned to work directly with experienced trial attorneys and assist the attorneys with a wide range of duties, including (1) victim and witness interviews; (2) assistance with formal plea procedures; (3) trial preparation; (4) research and writing; and (5) assistance with jury selection and jury trials. Interns routinely accompany prosecutors to court to observe and help with court dockets, hearings, and trials. Interns may also be required to complete additional assignments, specific projects, or observations as prescribed by their school or professors. If you are interested in applying for an academic (volunteer) intern position, please submit a cover letter, resume, and completed Law Student Intern application, which you may download via the link below, to the Harris County District Attorney's Office at internships@dao.hctx.net.
