2021 Summer Honors Internship Program at New York City Law Department

The Law Department selects approximately 50 Summer Honors Program interns from over 2,500 applications submitted each year. Weekly stipends of $750 are offered to all second-year summer interns and most first-year summer interns. Out-of-town law student interns may be eligible for free summer housing. The Law Department is perhaps the only public sector/public interest employer in the country to make offers of permanent employment to its second-year summer interns based on their performance during the summer. In the past few years, about half of their entry class attorney positions have been filled with former participants of their Summer Honors Internship Program.
