U.S. Attorney Internship

Student Experience

““I thoroughly enjoyed and professionally benefited from the U.S. Attorney Internship.  Working with seasoned prosecutors who have tried numerous cases is an incredible way to learn trial strategy - from investigation, to verdict, to sentencing.  Tony Brown, Chief of the Austin office, takes the time to get to know his interns and offers valuable insight into starting a career with the federal government.  The writing seminar that accompanies the internship allows students to work together, a rare opportunity for peer-to-peer collaboration in law school.  Professors Susan Klein and Tony Brown have a great dynamic which ensures that class discussions stay lively and interesting.  I would recommend the U.S. Attorney Internship to anyone who happens to have a little extra time in their schedule.  Not only will the internship strengthen important professional skills such as legal research and writing, it provides a peek into the real-world operation of the justice system that few others will ever experience.”
