What are the minimum requirements?

For those applying for either a litigation or transactional position, it is preferred that candidates are in their second or third year.

In addition to the above, for litigation positions, it is preferred that candidates have completed Evidence and Civil Procedure and are eligible for certification with the State Bar under its “Practical Training of Law Students” program. For those applying for transactional positions, completion of constitutional law coursework is preferred.

Interns must be willing to work a minimum 20 hours per week. Office hours are from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., Monday through Friday. Work schedules are flexible based on an intern’s class schedule as well as the operational needs of the office. Once a schedule has been agreed upon, interns are expected to maintain the schedule on a consistent basis.
