  Employment and Internship Opportunities  
  Summer Law Internships  
 
The New Jersey Division of Criminal Justice offers law students the opportunity to complete an unpaid internship during the summer between their second and third years of law school. If accepted into the program, interns will be assigned to one of the Division’s Bureaus and supervised by a Deputy Attorney General.
Law interns will be exposed to a variety of substantive areas of the law, and are expected to have excellent legal research, legal writing, and interpersonal communication skills.
Beyond performance of the responsibilities assigned by each law intern’s supervisor, interns are provided opportunities to observe Deputy Attorneys General appearing before the Law Division, Appellate Division, and, occasionally, the New Jersey Supreme Court. They may also attend the Summer Intern Speaker Series, weekly speaking events held in our Trenton offices, at which Assistant Attorneys General and Deputy Attorneys General share their knowledge of substantive law and litigation technique.
Law internship applicants should express their interest in multiple specific Bureaus within the Division as well as any geographic preference. Effort will be made to accommodate such interests, but no particular assignment is guaranteed.
Hiring for the summer of 2014 will occur through February 28, 2014. Interested second-year law students should submit a resume, legal writing sample, and unofficial transcript to:
