Summer 2017 Internship Program

The South Carolina Attorney General’s Office offers an internship program for students enrolled in an undergraduate or graduate program at an accredited academic institution. Interns will have an opportunity to gain hands-on knowledge of the Office while conducting research, providing administrative support, and attending court hearings, depositions, or trials as schedules permit. Interns must work  at least 15 hours but no more than 25 hours per week. Law students seeking internship opportunities should apply through the Law Clerk Program.

Application Process:

The Office will accept applications from February 1, 2017, until 5:00 pm on February 28, 2017. No applications will be accepted after the deadline.

Interested applicants must submit the following:

  1. State of South Carolina employment application
    PDF File of State Application
  2. Cover Letter addressed to Katie Elliott, Human Resources Manager
  3. Resume
  4. Background Check Release Form (Requires an ink signature.  Please do not type a signature into the form.)

Applications not submitted in pdf format will not be considered. All documents must be uploaded at one time. Applicants will not have an opportunity to save a portion of their application and return later to submit the remaining documents.

All applicants are required to submit to standard background checks that include a criminal history check, driver’s license check, and a drug screening. Interns assigned to the Prosecution/State Grand Jury Section are required to complete and pass a more extensive background check and take an oath of secrecy. Interns so sworn must keep the confidence of the state grand jury and not disclose the testimony of a witness or other evidence received by it to anyone except as authorized by law. Interns must maintain confidentiality even beyond the duration of their employment with this Office.

The Office will begin accepting fall semester applications according to the following schedule:

Fall:  June 1, 2017 – June 30, 2017

Any outside employment and/or activities are subject to agency approval and must be disclosed as soon as possible to ensure no conflicts of interest.

Internships must end at the conclusion of the student’s final semester.  Upon the end of the internship, the Office can make no obligation to hire interns as permanent or non-permanent employees. All interns serve at- will.
