The Executive Division of the New York State Office of the Attorney General (OAG) is seeking talented law students to
work with the Attorney General’s Counsel and other Executive staff members in the New York City office as part our 2019
Summer Law Internship Program (SLIP). The SLIP officially runs for 8 weeks between June and July (10-week appointments
are available, if required by the applicant’s funding source). The 2019 SLIP will begin on June 3, 2019. Interns commit to
work full-time for the duration of the program. These internships are either volunteer positions, externships for course
credit, funded by a public service grant obtained by the student, or work-study funded by a law school. We encourage
applicants to confer with their financial aid offices and public interest career advisors for information regarding funding
available for public service internships with a government agency such as the OAG.
The selected law students will assist attorneys in all phases of their work including, but not limited to legal research;
drafting of briefs, memos and pleadings; document review; responding to discovery requests; preparing for depositions
and trials; and performing some clerical work. We are seeking hardworking interns who are committed to public service
and have excellent legal research and writing skills; fluency in other languages (e.g., Spanish, Mandarin, Russian, Korean,
etc.) in addition to English is a plus, but not required. U.S. citizenship and New York State residency are not required.
Candidates from diverse backgrounds are encouraged to apply.
The OAG is an equal opportunity employer and is committed to workplace diversity.
