The Indian Law Project is based in our Reno office and serves all 27 tribes in the state of Nevada. This position can be done from any of our offices across the state. If you are interested, please apply online or by email to Careers. Open until filled. The Nevada Attorney General`s Office is one of the largest law firms in Nevada. The office currently employs 350 people and about 150 attorneys across the state. Our lawyers handle thousands of legal issues each year in the following areas: appellate advocacy, business and tax, complex civil litigation, consumer protection, criminal prosecution, criminal appeals and habeas, employment and equal rights, government and natural resources, licensing boards and open government, jail litigation and civil rights, public policy, and transportation and VDD issues. For more information about the desktop, see ag.nv.gov. The Nevada Attorney General`s Office is seeking up to twelve (12) unpaid articling students each fall, spring, and summer for our Carson City, Reno, and Las Vegas offices.
Summer internships take place in May – July, autumn internships take place in August – November and spring internships take place in January – April. Articling students work directly with Deputy Attorneys General in substantive legal matters. Projects may include researching and writing memoranda, briefs, motions, examinations, trial preparation assistance, witness interviews, document organization and other duties assigned by a supervisor. Interns who qualify for Nevada Supreme Court certification for legal practice training under Supreme Court Rule 49.5 are encouraged to do so. The work will be meaningful and will give students a real opportunity to become familiar with current legal issues. Interns may also have the opportunity to visit courts and observe hearings and mediations under the supervision of a Deputy Attorney General. Applicants must have strong research and writing skills. Children with disabilities in Clark County`s health care system need an advocate to ensure their school meets the student`s disability-related needs. Volunteers are required to interact with the school district to obtain services or accommodations and to participate in the IEP process on behalf of the student.
If you are committed to making a difference, develop your skills and build a lasting relationship with the Southern Nevada Legal Aid Center through an internship.
