Thank you for your interest in an internship with the Office of the Attorney General (OAG). The Attorney General serves as Connecticut’s chief legal officer for civil matters, and the OAG serves as legal counsel to all state agencies. The Connecticut Constitution, statutes and common law authorize the Attorney General to advance the public interest on behalf of the people of our state in legal matters.
Among the critical missions of the OAG are to represent and vigorously advocate for the interests of the state and its citizens, to ensure that state government acts within the letter and spirit of the law, to protect public resources for present and future generations, to preserve and enhance the quality of life of all our citizens, and to ensure that the rights of our most vulnerable citizens are safeguarded.
Internships are unpaid, volunteer positions open to graduate and law students, paralegal, undergraduate, and highly motivated high-school students. Accepted applicants may arrange externships with their schools for course credit for their work in the Office. Positions are also available for work-study students with school stipends. Applicants should have an interest in the law, be able to communicate clearly, have strong research and writing skills and computer proficiency.
The OAG has 16 sections: Antitrust; General Litigation; Child Protection; Collections/Child Support; Consumer Advocacy; Consumer Protection; Environment; Employment Rights, Workers Compensation, and Labor; Financial and Revenue Services; Government Program Fraud; Health and Education; Privacy and Data Security; Public Safety; Special Litigation; and Infrastructure and Economic Development.
