This internship is a way for law students to gain firsthand exposure to trial and appellate litigation in the public sector. Students work closely with Assistant District Attorneys in the investigation, preparation, and prosecution of criminal cases in Manhattan. Depending on the assignment, students will help prosecutors prepare for hearings or trials of street crime cases such as larceny, domestic violence, sex crimes, narcotics, and homicides. Students may also assist in the investigation and litigation of white-collar frauds and rackets cases, and will research and write trial or appellate briefs. We make a significant effort to match the student's interests with their assignments.
As with all employment, the office is committed to a policy against discrimination based on race, color, religion, gender, national origin, age, disability, marital or veteran status, or sexual orientation.
