Summer Internships

If you are interested in a legal career or law enforcement, the Department of Justice and State Crime Lab offer a variety of internship opportunities for students.
 

Legal Internships 

Each summer, the North Carolina Attorney General's Office selects about 30 law students to serve as legal interns. As a legal intern, your work assignments would include drafting appellate briefs, attending hearings and depositions, and organizing and drafting discovery responses.

Legal interns have the opportunity to interact with judges and lawyers, and attend a series of outside events, including a visit to the State Crime Lab.

Although these internship programs are unpaid, the department strongly encourages you to seek academic credit or financial assistance through grant programs. Completed applications must be submitted via email by no later than 5 pm on January 22, 2016. For more information on the legal internship program, contact legalinterns@ncdoj.gov.



State Crime Lab Internships

If you are a college student pursuing a career in forensic science, the State Crime Lab offers internships at all laboratory locations and in all forensic disciplines. The internship program runs throughout the year and coincides with university semesters. Internships at the State Crime Lab are unpaid, but interested parties are encouraged to to seek academic credit or financial assistance through grant programs.

Application information, instructions, deadlines, and materials are linked below. Applications must be postmarked by the February 15, 2016 deadline in order to be considered.
