The Department of Law offers unpaid internships and externships for school credit to first, second and third-year law students only. This is a great opportunity to gain first-hand experience and course credit.
Interns must be in their first, second or third year of law school, have the ability to allocate a minimum of 15 to 20 hours per week, work 10 to 12 weeks, and successfully complete a criminal background check and fingerprint check.
NOTE: Civil Litigation & Employment Law, Criminal Justice, and Natural Resources do not accept first-year law students.
To submit your application, send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org containing a cover letter (attention Intern Review Committe), resume, short writing sample (10 pages or less), and unofficial transcript (first-year students may apply without a transcript, but must supplement their application with a transcript as soon as grades are received).
Cover letter must include a statement of why the applicant wishes to work in the Colorado Office of the Attorney General, and which section(s) the applicant is interested in working. Please label the application, or each document if submitting individual documents, with your last name, first initial and document type. Example: SmithJ_FallApplication or SmithJ_FallCoverLtr.
Applicants will receive an e-mail acknowledging receipt of their application. Should an applicant be selected for an interview, he or she will be contacted by an attorney in the section seeking interns.
Each section has a limited number of positions and often fills positions up to nine months in advance. Students are hired on a rolling basis.

**The REVENUE & UTILITIES SECTION is a new section comprised of the Revenue, PUC, and Conservation Easement Units, which were previously part of the Business & Licensing section. The BUSINESS & LICENSING SECTION still house the Insurance, Medical, Nursing/Dental, Agricultural/Professional, and Financial/Professional Units. We have begun to update the website, but all units are listed under B&L until those changes are finalized. Thank you for your patience, and for delineating between the sections when you apply.
