        Internship Position Description

        The Office of the Nevada Attorney General is seeking up to twelve law students to work in our Carson City and Las Vegas offices. Internships will run during the period of May – August 2019. Interns work directly with Deputy Attorney Generals on substantive matters. Projects may include researching and writing memorandums, legal briefs, assisting with preparation for trial, witness interviews, document organization, and other tasks as assigned by a supervisor. Those interns who qualify for certification by the Nevada Supreme Court for training in the practice of law under Supreme Court Rule 49.5 are encouraged to do so. The assignments will be meaningful and give students a real opportunity to be exposed to current legal issues at the state and federal levels. Legal interns may also have an opportunity to visit the courts and observe court hearings and mediations under the supervision of a Deputy Attorney General. Applicants should have strong research and writing skills.
