The Bronx District Attorney’s Office is seeking law students for its summer internship program. The program will take place during the summer of 2021, dates and duration to be determined. Interns work full time, Mondays through Fridays, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Interns are assigned to a specific bureau within the Office and are directly supervised by an Assistant District Attorney.
Depending on health and safety conditions, through our student practice order, interns may have the opportunity to appear on the record at arraignments, calendar calls, hearings, and trials. Interns will observe and assist with witness interviews, hearings, and trials, listen to and transcribe 911 calls, and review police reports. They will participate in the decision making process regarding offers and aid in plea negotiations. The interns will attend lectures given by members of the criminal justice community and participate in simulation practicums throughout the program. Finally, every effort will be made to give each intern a writing assignment that can serve as a writing sample for job searches.
