About the Opportunity:

Our office is a general practice with two (2) attorneys and support staff located in Sheepshead Bay in Brooklyn, NY. We are currently looking for 1 or 2 interns to join us immediately, as we are exceptionally busy. This is a great opportunity for someone who is considering going to law school and wants to get hands on experience in a law firm.

Responsibilities

The intern(s) will be responsible for assisting attorneys and paralegals in all aspects of running a law office, from client intake to preparation of legal documents. The intern(s) will be exposed to all aspects of the practice, including the opportunity to attend depositions and court matters. This type of hands on experience is extremely rare in undergraduate legal internships. Intern(s) will develop a deep knowledge/understanding of the legal field and will have the opportunity to be mentored by an attorney.
