Baylor Law Texas District, County, and City Attorney Intern Program
Baylor Law School's Career Development Office is pleased to offer a summer intern program for Texas District, County, and City Attorneys' offices and for Baylor Law students again this year. This is a matching and assignment program, which is an effort to streamline the process by which students apply for intern positions with your office. The purpose of this program is to provide a centralized method to match students with local government attorneys who are interested in hosting paid or unpaid summer interns. Our goal is to give our students an opportunity to learn practical skills under the supervision of experienced lawyers.
If you would like to participate, please complete the form below by February 1, 2013. Indicate your preference for class level (1L or 2L), the number of positions available, and whether you will allow the students to complete the internship for class credit. (There are some law school guidelines that apply when the internship is for credit, and you will be asked to complete a review and evaluation form.) We will post your intern position, and invite interested students to submit resumes to us. If you prefer to hire interns through another program or by direct student contact, please let us know by checking the appropriate box on the form.
Matching and Assignment
We will email you all of the resumes we receive for your office by February 15, 2013. If you have a preference for particular students, we ask that you notify us by February 22, 2013. Because this is a matching and assignment process, and due to the expected number of participants and the short time frame while classes are in session, we are not in a position to schedule interviews. We ask that you make your preference decisions, if any, through review of the resumes. In fairness to program participants, we ask that you not contact students directly.
We will make every effort to assign students to you as available in the order you have them ranked. As we have discovered from other student intern programs, however, it is not uncommon for the same students to be selected for several positions, and so we may not be able to assign you the student you have ranked at the top of your list. Also, given financial and geographic constraints, it is likely that many students will apply for the same positions, and not all offices that request interns will receive a matching student selection. We will notify you and the students of the assignments by March 1, 2013. The students then will contact you about scheduling.
