Interested in Careers in Law?

The National Bar Association Crump Law Camp was established to provide students entering the 9th through 11th grades (ages 14 to 17) with an introduction to the American judicial system. Three other national minority bars—the Hispanic National Bar Association, the Native American Bar Association and the National Asian Pacific Bar Association have generously given their support to the camp as well. By providing incentives, motivation and direction to aspiring law students of color, the National Bar Association Crump Law Camp helps prepare the nation’s future lawyers, judges and protectors of the judicial system. The inaugural two-week camp was held during the summer of 2001 at Howard University School of Law supported by a grant from the Ford Motor Company Fund. Thirty-two students of diverse backgrounds and ethnicities descended upon the Howard University campus where they were introduced to law school and learned some of the skills required to be an effective lawyer.

Internship Program to Run in Mid-Winter and Spring Cycles; Program Provides
Unique Learning Experience in Public Service and Law

Acting Brooklyn District Attorney Eric Gonzalez today announced the launch of a competitive mid-winter and spring internship program for current high school juniors and seniors who live and attend school in Brooklyn. Students with a strong interest in criminal justice or the public interest sector and who meet the requisite eligibility criteria are encouraged to apply and participate in one of two intensive one-week programs.

Acting District Attorney Gonzalez said, “This internship program will offer hands-on experience into how criminal cases develop, everything from the steps taken to investigate and build a case, to how cases are presented in court. Interns accepted into the program will not only learn about the criminal justice system and legal careers, but will also develop team-building and leadership skills that will enhance their professional development.”

Selected students will be assigned to a unit within the DA’s office and will support the work of Assistant District Attorneys and other members of the DA’s staff. They can expect to assist with legal research and analysis using the Internet, news articles and legal periodicals; assist attorneys on pretrial matters; work on case preparation, discovery, file maintenance and organizing court documents; participate in trial zone workshops; participate in judicial, legal and law enforcement-related field trips; and observe criminal proceedings including trials, guilty pleas and sentencings.

The program is open to qualifying juniors and seniors who must be able to commit to the entire duration of either of two internship cycles. Cycle 1 will run from February 20, 2018 to February 23, 2018; Cycle 2 will run from April 2, 2018 to April 6, 2018. Hours are 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. each day.

This is an unpaid internship, but students will receive a MetroCard to assist with transportation. Applicants are required to supply their most recent school transcript, a one-page resume, one letter of recommendation from either a teacher, coach, or mentor and must submit a 300 word typed essay (12 pt. font and double-spaced) on why they are interested in interning with the Brooklyn District Attorney’s Office and what impact they think it will have on their future personal and academic endeavors.
