Law students who have completed their first year of school are also welcome to apply for internships. While these students are not eligible to appear on the record in court, they are able to have extensive client contact under supervision and work closely with staff attorneys on misdemeanor, juvenile and felony cases. First year students often conduct legal research, draft motions, and assist staff attorneys in preparing for hearings and trials. In addition, these students have the opportunity to investigate cases under the supervision of an NHPD staff investigator.
This is an unpaid, ten-week internship. Roughly half of the intern’s time is spent working on investigations. Job-related mileage and investigator licensing expenses are reimbursed. Interns must be licensed drivers with an insured vehicle.
