2024 Summer 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 but no more than 25 hours per week. Law Clerk students seeking law clerk opportunities should apply through the Law Clerk Program.
All student positions will report to our office in downtown Columbia. We are not offering remote positions at this time.
The Office will accept applications from January 15, 2024, until 5:00 pm on January 31, 2024. No applications will be accepted after the deadline.
