Internship Legal





The Denver District Attorney’s Office uses law student interns in a variety of capacities. Most legal interns have completed the second year of law school, however, a limited number of opportunities exist for students who have only completed their first year. Legal internships are on a voluntary basis, but students may arrange academic credit.

Our County Court and Juvenile Court divisions utilize law students each academic semester and during the summer. These internships provide exposure to courtroom tasks, and may require formal certification under the Colorado Student Practice Act.
Our Appellate Division* uses students each semester who assist with research and writing assignments.

In addition, various specialized units may accept interns who have a particular interest and/or background in their area. These specialized units include the Family Violence Unit, Economic Crimes Unit and Community Justice Unit.
Although there are currently no rigid deadlines for applications, students should apply a semester in advance of the semester in which they seek to intern.
