The Office of the Fulton County District Attorney provides internship opportunities for deserving law and undergraduate students. Internships are available during the Fall and Spring semesters for academic credits. A limited number of Summer internships are also available.
Student interns assist trial attorneys with the preparation of cases for trial and are given assignments that expose them to a wide range of prosecutorial functions including research and written memorandum, drafting of pre-trial motions, interviewing witnesses and investigations.
Participation in trials requires admission under the third year practice act. Students may be assigned to projects in the Appellate, Juvenile and Administrative Divisions as well as the Felony Trial Division. In addition, seminars with local police officers, medical examiners, and other criminal justice service providers may be scheduled.
Interns work under the supervision of a Deputy District Attorney or designee. The Deputy or designee is in charge of student assignments and evaluation. Students are expected to meet the requirements of the Office’s internships and those of their respective schools.
Prior to acceptance, students are interviewed and must submit to a criminal background check.
Interested students should submit a resume and an official transcript via email to: DA.Interns@fultoncountyga.gov
