DOI’s Internship Program offers hands-on experience to college students, law school students and graduate students. We run three internship sessions throughout the year – in the Spring, Summer and Fall – each lasting between nine and twelve weeks, for up to 35 hours a week. DOI’s Internship Program offers brown bag lunches that feature speakers from the law enforcement profession who share their knowledge in investigations, criminal justice, and the law; and field trips that introduce interns to New York City government.
Below are the application opening and closing dates for each session, as well as further information on the type of internships offered. Please note: DOI only accepts Legal Internship applications through the Public Interest Legal Career Fair at NYU Law and that application process has now closed for Summer Session 2022.
For all internship applications, DOI requests a:
» cover letter
» writing sample
» school transcript
Finalists must show proof of COVID-19 vaccination and must be fingerprinted, as well as pass a DOI background investigation. If you have questions, please contact the internship program through this email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
