About the internship scheme
Each year the Office of the Attorney General employs a number of law students as interns for a five-week internship with us. This is a win–win scheme that benefits both the Office of the Attorney General and the individual students.
The interns are given a unique opportunity to follow several cases at the Office of the Attorney General, consider various legal issues, and work side-by-side with the lawyers, for example by participating in meetings with clients or following a case in court. Internships give law students the chance to put what they have learned at university into practice, and it is also a great way to get an idea of what it is like to work at the Office of the Attorney General. Several former interns have since been hired as assistant lawyers at the Office of the Attorney General.
When can you apply?
We have two recruitment rounds a year, one in September / October and one in February. More detailed information about deadlines is provided in advertisements and on the website. As a general rule, in September we employ interns for the following winter half of the year, while in February we hire for the following summer half year (except for July), however both "half-years" are very loosely defined and can be extended slightly. We try to adapt the internship periods to the students' examination schedule, but we are not able to reserve periods in advance.
Internships are advertised in Stud.Jur., Injuria and Jus't.
Who can apply?
Applicants ought to have completed the third year of their degree course, with good results. The internship scheme is only available for students, not graduates. Students who are in their final semester at the time of application will therefore be precluded.
