Hi! I am seeking advice on how to get an internship in the law field, preferably at a law firm or something of that kind?
I am a junior in high school from New Jersey, I am interested in pursuing a career in the legal field. I do Forensics at my school, which is a big commitment, so I am hoping for an internship that is flexible with a high school schedule. Anything helps, and thank you! #internships #law #political-science #internship
You could also consider law-related opportunities, like in the law-enforcement area. Since you're already taking forensics (which is a pretty cool field), maybe a local police or sheriff dept could have an internship for a hs student. I also came across this info flyer from Summit HS on the internet for internships: https://www.summit.k12.nj.us/uploaded/SHS_FILES/Guidelines_Information_Packet_2019-2020.pdf
I don't know if you attend the same school, but you can see that schools do offer programs for their students (law is one of the "employment" opportunities). Good luck Claire!
Best of luck!
Thank you for your interest in law!
It seems that the internships in law offices go to law students, so you may want to look into Litigation Support Services. They do a lot of the "leg-work" for attorneys, such as tracking down and compiling documents, making copies, etc. Some even do things such as prepare "day-in-the-life" videos, designed to visually present what the client's life has been like since getting paralyzed in the car accident, for example. Here's a little more information: https://www.lorr.com/what-is-litigation-support-learn-everything-you-need-to-know/
