Program Mission

The intent of the Brooklyn DA Summer Internship Program is to bring students up close and personal with the criminal justice system, while educating them with hands-on experience. Through this program we look to foster positive perspectives on the legal and law enforcement community, as well as develop a sense of ownership over their education and future success. 

Level of Commitment and Expectation

The Brooklyn DA Summer Internship Program will help to build the student’s understanding that their academic preparations and achieving success within the workplace are interconnected. The program’s structure provides students with an assigned Assistant District Attorney, who will serve in the dual role of a mentor and a supervisor. Over the course of five weeks, interns will receive on-the-job training and build their knowledge of the workplace. With that in mind, we expect our interns to exhibit a level of professionalism consistent with the professional conduct standards required of all staff members at the Brooklyn District Attorney’s Office.

Areas of evaluation will include the following:

  • Attendance and Punctuality
  • Attitude and Willingness to Learn
  • Appearance and Overall Presence
  • Communication
  • Maturity and Professionalism
