Student Volunteers

The United States Attorney's Office frequently offers volunteer opportunities for students. These positions are temporary, part-time, and not to exceed 6 months. Students with majors including but not limited to, criminal justice, law enforcement, legal/paralegal studies, political science, policy studies and business management/administration are all encouraged to apply. Assignments: As a student volunteer, you will provide clerical support to legal and administrative staff. Major duties consist of maintaining and duplicating files, sorting and distributing mail, making court runs, reception coverage, and completing rotational assignments and special projects with all office sections as needed.

Eligibility Requirements:

  • You must be a student, enrolled at least half time or accepted for enrollment in an accredited technical, vocational, 2 or 4-year college or university, graduate or professional school and pursuing a degree, diploma, or certificate.
  • You must be a U.S. citizen.
  • Office experience, good computer skills and organizational skills are a plus.
  • Selected students will be required to go through our pre-employment security background investigation process due to the sensitive nature of the work. Initiation of the background investigation process requires each student to complete an electronic investigation questionnaire along with supplemental documents. Approval for pre-employment background investigation waiver can take between four to six weeks. Students will not be permitted to begin their internship until a waiver has been received from our executive office.
