Brooklyn District Attorney Eric Gonzalez announced on Friday that the DA’s office will host a four-week in-person internship program for high school rising sophomores, juniors and seniors who live in or attend school in Brooklyn. 
Interns will be assigned to specialized units within the DA’s office. Their duties may include researching, helping prosecutors prepare for trial and observing criminal proceedings, including trials, guilty pleas, sentencings and more. 
“We are proud to offer this opportunity for high school students who are interested to learn more about the legal system and to gain hands-on experience in handling criminal cases. Our interns will learn about what it takes to build and prosecute a case, from investigatory steps to charging decisions to the court process, and will be exposed to many different career opportunities as they consider their future professional goals,” said Gonzalez. 
Interns will receive a $150 weekly stipend and a MetroCard. Interested applicants must submit their most recent school transcript, a one-page resume, working papers issued by their school and a 250-word typed personal essay.
