Law Clerkships & Externships

The Office of the Attorney General provides part-time paid law clerkships or externships for school credit for current law students.

Our law clerks perform a wide variety of tasks such as preparing legal documents, conducting legal analysis, and conducting research. Often, our law clerks will prepare draft opinions for cases that will act as the foundation for lawyers and judges. They will also help during the course of an action by preparing for a case and examining legal documents such as petitions, legal complaints, and affidavits. The extent of each task will be determined by the division for which the student clerks. 

If you are interested, please submit an application for a Clerkship with our office by visiting this link. We look forward to reviewing your application! If you have any questions about our office, our Clerk Program, or the application process, please feel free to contact us at
