LEGAL INTERNSHIP (UNPAID) — COLLEGE AND LAW STUDENTS

The Essex County Prosecutor’s Office offers college and law school students the opportunity to work in the capacity of an unpaid intern, voluntarily or for school credit. Internships are available throughout the year and the internship program is designed to maximize the students’ involvement with the criminal justice system in the County. Many of our legal interns are offered judicial internships and subsequent employment as assistant prosecutors here in Essex County or in other Counties. The program, which provides an exposure to a wide variety of interesting and challenging legal issues, also offers:

  • Substantial opportunity for court appearances by third-year law students;
  • Interaction with judges, attorneys and investigators;
  • Practical legal research and writing experience;
  • Court observation;
  • Lecture series; and
  • Field trips
