The Nassau County District Attorney’s Office offers internship programs for the fall and spring semesters, as well an eight-week program during the summer. Interns are assigned to assistant district attorneys in any of twelve major bureaus, in either our Mineola or Hempstead locations, based on the needs of the office. Whenever possible, interns will assist the attorneys in preparing cases for trial, investigation, or appeal. The internship may also include performing legal research as well as general clerical work such as filing or photocopying.
All internships are voluntary, unpaid positions.
First and second year legal interns who successfully complete their internship will be granted an initial interview, during their third year of law school, for an Assistant District Attorney position.
If you are seeking to receive course credit, or monetary compensation from your law school or any other source for your internship, you must submit any work product and/or minimum attendance requirements and forms as soon as possible, but no later than the date of the internship orientation.
