Volunteer Legal Internships at DOJ!

Every year, over 1,800 volunteer legal interns serve in Justice components and U.S. Attorneys’ Offices throughout the country.  Any law student enrolled at least half-time, and who has completed at least one semester of law school, is eligible to apply for a volunteer legal internship.

Department of Justice (DOJ) offices recruit for legal interns through vacancy announcements posted on the DOJ Legal Careers web page. Each announcement lists the applicable deadlines and requirements and students interested in volunteer internships at DOJ for spring and summer 2016 should apply now.  Students apply directly to each office in which they have an interest.
