Sorry! This position is no longer available!
The Tax Division works to provide a valuable internship experience by attempting to ensure that legal interns assist in as many aspects of the Division’s work as possible, and that interns are provided written or oral feedback on their assignments.
Interns are assigned to a section for the semester and work closely with that section’s attorneys on a wide range of issues, to the extent allowed by law. Interns are frequently asked to research legal issues that arise in pending cases, and may also be asked to prepare legal memoranda or draft pleadings, briefs, motions, and other legal documents. Interns may assist with discovery, including drafting interrogatories, document requests, and subpoenas. Interns may have the opportunity to help attorneys prepare for arguments, trials, and hearings, and may have the opportunity to attend and observe those that are local.
Interns will be expected to work approximately 10-12 weeks during the semester, for a minimum of 15 hours per week. It is anticipated that most interns will be attending classes during the semester and will therefore be working a part-time schedule; however, the sections will attempt to accommodate requests for full-time internships.
The Division seeks law students with a strong academic record and excellent legal research and writing skills. Interns must be able to grasp issues quickly, conduct thorough and accurate research, and write clearly, concisely, and persuasively.
Candidates must hold full or dual United States citizenship, and have resided in the United States for three of the past five years. Because of the sensitive nature of the work, candidates receiving offers must undergo a background investigation.
The positions are uncompensated; however, work-study credit may be available.
