Student interns are afforded the opportunity to participate in the wide range of work performed by our Assistant United States Attorneys. Intern assignments can include assisting in trial preparation, participating in witness interviews or civil depositions, and legal research and writing. Summer interns are also strongly encouraged to observe hearings and trials in the District Court, and even to participate.
Our summer intern program also features a number of exciting intern events. Traditionally, these include guided tours of the NYPD Ballistics Laboratory and the Metropolitan Detention Center (the local federal jail). Additionally, each week, we host an intern "brown bag luncheon" with speakers on a variety of topics of interest. Over past summers the speakers have included the United States Attorney, federal judges, and Assistant U.S. Attorneys from the Office's various practice areas.
