Internship: U.S. Attorney

This internship program offers students the opportunity to apply for “for-credit” internship positions with the Austin U.S. Attorney’s Office. Information on the U.S. Attorney’s Office is available at: www.usdoj.gov/usao/txw/

Students earn 4 credits (pass/fail) over two semesters (2 credits per semester) – offered Fall and Spring every year. Students must commit to a full academic year of internship study. Students are encouraged to enroll in the Fall Advanced Federal Criminal Prosecution seminar, co-taught by Professors Brown and Klein, and the Spring Federal Criminal Law course, taught by Susan Klein, during the same academic year as their U.S. Attorney Internship. Interns are also encouraged to take Criminal Procedure, but none of these courses are mandatory for the internship.

Students interested in the internship for any academic year should stop by Prof. Susan Klein’s office at TNH 3.207 in Feb. or March of the year before you will start. You may call her at (512) 232-1324, or send her an e-mail at sklein@law.utexas.edu. 

Alternatively, you may call Prof. Brown at (512) 916-5858, or send him an e-mail at Anthony.w.brown@usdoj.gov.  

 

Please send resume, cover letter, and transcripts (unofficial OK) to sklein@law.utexas.edu and to Anthony.w.brown@usdoj.gov .
