    Attorney General’s Office to Launch Intern Program

    April 9, 2015

    LITTLE ROCK, ARK. – Arkansas Attorney General Leslie Rutledge announced today that her office is launching an intern program for college students seeking to learn more about a career in government and public service.

    “Internships can be invaluable for college students to gain real-world experience as they try to decide their career path,” said Attorney General Rutledge. “An internship in the Attorney General’s Office will encourage careers in public service and offer students the opportunity to directly impact people across the State. The Attorney General’s Office already has a well-established law clerk program, but our internship program will benefit students not necessarily interested in law school or not yet in law school.”

    Departments include: Civil, Communications, Community Engagement, Criminal, Finance, Information Technology, Medicaid Fraud Control, Opinions and Public Protection.

    Applicant packet information is available under the employment section at

    2015 internship deadlines:

    • Deadline to apply for the fall session is July 1. Fall session will run from Sep. 1 to Dec. 11.

    Some interns may be able to arrange for college credit for their internship, depending upon the requirements of their college or university.
