The Office of the Harris County Attorney is seeking eligible candidates who are eager to deepen their legal expertise and acquire hands-on communications experience for their diverse Internship Program starting in Fall 2024. With the application deadline extended to July 15, 2024, the internship comes with avenues for growth and exploration, an ideal fit for both law students and those aspiring for a career in public service, policy, and communications.

The Legal Internship is designed for current law students seeking hands-on experience in the field with a blend of research assignments and courtroom training. This position is an incubator of legal minds, driving them towards becoming future lawyers who are adept at providing legal counsel, handling civil lawsuits, and advising county officials.

The Communications & Public Affairs Internship, managed by the Communications Division of the office, caters to undergraduate and graduate students. Interns will have the chance to assist in community outreach, social media dynamics, and the programming of office's internal and external websites. They can choose between three distinguished career pathways - Communications and Youth Engagement, Communications and Public Affairs, or Social Media and Content.

To apply, candidates are required to present a cover letter, a resume, an unofficial transcript, and a work sample. Showcase your abilities through a variety of mediums like graphic design, video production, articles, blogs, or legal writing. Remember to submit the Background Check Authorization Form as well. The deadlines for application submissions are November 1 for Spring, March 1 for Summer, and July 15 for Fall.

The Harris County Attorney’s Office, situated in downtown Houston, serves as the legal counsel for the Harris County government, the Harris County Flood Control District, the Harris County Toll Road Authority, and the Greater Harris County 9-1-1 Emergency Network in all civil matters, providing a dynamic and professionally enriching work environment for interns.
