The Utah Attorney General’s Office offers exciting and fulfilling internships for college students or recent college graduates. There are two types of internships: Legislative Internships and Summer/Fall Internships.
Legislative internships take place during Utah’s Legislative Session (seven weeks in January through March) and are focused on assisting the Attorney General’s Office monitor legislation relevant to our office. Full-time legislative interns are paid a stipend of $3000. Preference is given to full-time interns, although a part-time placement may be possible.
Summer, Fall, and Spring internships take place May through August (for Summer internships), September through December (for Fall internships), and January through April (for Spring internships) and allow interns to be paired with the divisions of our office which hold the most interest for them. These internships are unpaid. Both full-time and part-time internships are available. We do not at this time offer remote, virtual, or telecommuting internships.
The Victim Services Internship typically lasts four months and coordinates with the local universities’ semester schedules (January-April, May-August, September-December); however, the timeframe of the internship contract is flexible and is arranged on a case by case basis between the prospective intern and the Victim Services Supervisor. The internship is part-time and unpaid. Victim Services interns work closely on criminal appellate cases, human trafficking cases, capital cases and other felony cases involving victims of crime. Responsibilities include advising victims of their statutory victims’ rights; notifying victims of various court hearings and accompanying victims to court; following up with victims regarding case status; identifying victim’s needs and providing referrals/resources; maintaining records and filing; contributing to the Utah Trafficking in Persons Task Force; and assisting the Victim Supervisor with special projects and other tasks as needed.
